Training Security Guards in martial arts

Butterworth: The Internal Security Ministry has proposed that martial arts be incorporated into the module of basic training for security guards, with effect from August 2004.

The ministry?s secretary-general Datuk Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof mentioned that the risks security guards might encounter while on duty would require them to know self-defence.

Last year, there were about 5,000 security guards nationwide that went for basic training. This present module covers self-discipline, fitness, communications and first aid but not self-defence. Datuk Abdul mentioned that the ministry wants to upgrade the image of security guards, so that the public will feel safe with the presence of security guards. Well-trained security guards would also secure better jobs, especially in multinational corporations.
