    The Yoshinkan is a harder style of Aikido, generally concerned with practical efficiency and physically robust techniques. It is taught to many branches of the Japanese Police.I use this form,very effective for multiple attackers,which is Important,this is where jiu jitsu has some weakness.So I mix both.

    i usually talk them out the door (thats our policy) but if that dont work i just twist there arm behind there back and grab there collar. works everytime, helps if you got other doormen watching your back, that way his friends dont get any smart ideas.

    there are specialized c & r (control and restraint) courses...
    i got to go on one tonight, luckily the club i work at is paying for it.

    i used to do judo (when i was bout 10 - 15 years old..... im comin up to 20 now but u never forget) and i always use moves i learned from that.

    A lot of the groundwork is excellent, since we have a lot of people who choose to drop to the ground when we're "ejecting" them from the club.

    Failing that, pull their gilrfriend.... they dnt usually like that, an leave, in a strop.

    dont forget about greco or freestyle wrestling, for good takedowns and body control. this way you dont have to mess them up and risk getting in trouble

    I work doors and am always aware of hurting someone in front of a witness, and yes I agree with you to an extent. Its good to show that you haven't roughened someone up whilst ejecting them and thats where chokes and locks come in handy. But some striking experience is a must too, it ain't always going to be one-on-one and sometime your going to get into a free-for-all melee and thats when you want to be good with your hands.

    Although I said Jitz earlier, I practice Kickboxing and Judo. Ideally these two would do you, but it would take many, many years of experience in both to be competent in both.

    for thode sugesting wrestling, judo or jitz, those are so wrong for the above question. the last thing you want is to end up on the ground, especially as a bodyguard. you cant protect your client if your rolling around on the ground, and any bouncer who has to take someone to the ground to get them to leave needs more training. something with "control" holds and locks, i say AIKIDO

    i was just thinking wrestling so no one gets hurt, unless u wanna do a lil ground n pound lol. but for messin people up thai i think would be best, doesnt really take long to learn elbows, knees and hooks. learning how to kick is a bitch tho lol

    A Lot Of People Neglect The Form Called Krav Maga...It Is A Military Defense Martial Art And For A Bouncer I Guarantee It Would Be Beneficial...
