Hard Target founder Aidan Carroll was recently invited to the UK as a guest instructor on “The Fear Cure” Seminar. Anthony Somers (5th Dan) under Geoff Thompson kicked off the day with a brief introduction.
It was 5.30pm, on a bright evening. I had just finished work and was making my way home through multiple busy streets. I suddenly sensed someone walking quite closely behind me but thought nothing sinister could happen as there were plenty of people around.
Ever wondered how you go about becoming a bodyguard or what training or qualifications are required to operate legally as a CPO (Close Protection Operative)? Intelligent Security Training in association with Hard Target Defence Systems will be training…

Growing up in the shadows of Thomand Park in Limerick City made it impossible not to love rugby. It also was a city of violence and of knife attacks. It was in 1966 when I purchased a self defence book. It told me to run, flee and escape… to become a Hard Target.
