The “Modern Samurai” Of the 21st Century
HOW TO BECOME A Successful bodyguard In the 21st century




We all know that in modern democratic society, public bodies, economic companies, media, cultural, entertainment and industrial organizations and others are managed by Senior Executives/Decisions Makers.

These Executives are symbols of power and wealth. Their high position places them in the public eye and media attention, and, as a result, they are liable to be targeted by both individuals and groups (competitors, terrorist and crime organizations, mentally unstable individuals, etc.).

The need for qualified Elite Protection Operatives capable of providing services related to the protection of assets (sensitive installations) and Protegees /VIPs such as experts, engineers, journalists, UN employees and even cargo ship’s crews has increased tremendously.

A few hundred years ago in the western world there were those who chose to serve in the protection of their employers, and they were called “Musketeers.” In Asia, they were known as “Samurai” or “Biaushi” in China. No matter what they were called, all knew the definition of their profession and their duties: to keep their Protégé’s secure and safe wherever they went.

Today, due to the high demand and need to privatize certain functions of government to the civilian workforce, this specialized field of Personal protection services has become one of the fastest growing sectors. Countries, companies, and organizations worldwide are currently reestablishing themselves in order to fill the void in the security field.

This sector gave society a few norms of behavior that gained high respect and honor from its communities.

In the 21st century, those who deal with the protection of their employers are called BodyguardsClose Protection Operatives, and VIP/Executive Protection Specialists. More recently, they have been called PSD Operators and Personal Security Details/Detachments because of their deployment in High-risk zones or missions, which have become known as the most dangerous areas for VIPs (not necessary heads of state).

For years, we have experienced an increase in the number of Female Bodyguards. Women in positions of Female VIP/Close Protection operatives are being sought after by VIPs to protect their families (wives and children) 24/7, including themselves in High-Risk threat situations.

Female celebrities are very keen on the use of other females as bodyguards, as it is also a means of expressing their support of women’s empowerment. Especially due do to the fact that the VIP Protection sector has been a male-dominated field, there is a void posed by the absence of women in the field from which female clients can pick from.

Most VIP’s that are from various religions including cultural and diverse nationalities, are requiring female professionals for the protection of their wives and families.

Male bodyguards in a protection team consider their female counterparts as the ‘Secret Weapon’ of the strategic and tactical professional protection team!

In Israel we achieved great success in the integration of Female and male operatives to operate together in our law enforcement units for security and protection special operation missions. that “winning expertise” encouraged us at ISA – ISRAEL to share it also with our mates worldwide as we did in the past.

These specially trained and highly skilled personnel are hired to protect individuals or assets of organizations that operate in High-Risk environments like Africa, and South America and ….

Many romantic stories and legends were told about these unique individuals and in most of these stories they were described as the bravest of warriors, heroes, or supermen. This profession created an aura around those who chose to specialize and live by the rules of the field. It is one of the oldest professions in the world.

In order for this trend to continue and to help the Civilian Security Industry to develop, we, the Security Executives in the various Private Sectors, must also improve ourselves and accumulate as much knowledge and practical experience as possible.

WE, at ISA-ISRAEL, have trained in the last 35 years thousands of Elite Protection operatives and Management personnel from more than 100 countries.

The objective of the International Security Academy – Israel, which holds professional and business relationships with many colleagues around the world), is to share the knowledge and practical experience which has been accumulated by both Israelis and colleagues throughout the world, thus contributing to the development of the international economy by assisting to the prevention of Crime and Terror throughout the world.

It’s the reality of the social and Global evolution.”
