expert advice needed

I posted in the grappling forum, but also wanted to know what stand up techniques would best most useful. I am applying with a private security company that doesn't allow weapons of any kind, except pepper spray (if you call that a weapon), and could use any advice.

No expert, but I'd recommend Mauy Thai. It's very street realistic. Nothing too flashy, but still deadly.

Muay Thai would be good but for security id say Judo would have to be the best but Muay Thai is good aswell.

Judo. Most companies will fire you if you strike anybody while working since they are liable for whatever happens to the "victim". With Judo, you can throw the person to the ground and hold them there until you can calm them down or somebody comes to help you. If you wanted to learn a striking skill (I just gave you a stand up one), then I'd suggest boxing. As a security offcier you aren't going to need to really kick anybody (again, for liability reasons). You might want to train in a traditional art too (such as Karate, not Taekwondo) so you can learn other effective ways to deflect strikes on you.

my uncle used to be a riot control cop, tokyo japan. japan everything is done in mass, so when they got called they would leave guns at the station. as a cop in japan you must be of teaching level (2nd degree black belt)in two martial arts, he was judo & aikido. to help get these degrees they do a live in program at the dojo every day training for a year.

"every second your not training, he is..... and he is doing it, just to kick your ass"

The number one thing to being in a security company is being big in size or stature so that people are less likely to try something anyway. Other than that just work on holds and chokes and locks to control or subdue your opponent. Anything more than that and you won't have a job or you will be in court. Just as with Bouncers at bars the people you toss no matter how deserving are the first to come back with a lawsuit or complaints to your employer. If your employer has video survailance make sure you do things if you can in view of the camera so you have proof of the person attacking you for court or anything like that down the road. Remember no matter how irrational the other person acts you are still a representative of the company you work for and are supposed to conduct yourself as such. (sorry for the long response)

This is a good point. I'm also changing my choice to Judo, dunno why I didn't think of that before.

Judo - awesome for body control and throws
Combat Hapkido - great for close quarters joint locking
Boxing - One well placed punch and it's over

Those are my choices if you going to be doing any form of Security work.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
