Duck for cover!

All I have to say is... wow.

Scratch that, less someone not realize the reckless danger exhibited:

Risks Inc. appears aptly named. Dangerous, reckless, irresponsible... the list could go on.

The sloppy, slow tumble while sweeping the cameraman, transitioning into the shoot-self-in-foot position is the ultimate ninja technique.

It only looks like a dangerous dork rolling around on the ground because we don't have the uberwarrior training these guys have.

Oh look, another school with demonstrated idiocy online!

Holy Cow!

From the bio on YouTube...
Quote:
I am a special tactics, firearms instructor and operator for Risks Inc. My experience in international close protection / bodyguard and specialist security business started in 1988 when I enlisted in the British army and volunteered for a 22-month operational tour in Northern Ireland in an infantry unit. This gave me amongst other things an excellent grounding in anti-terrorist operations. ...
And yet all that I can see is that he is demonstrated some of the same moves my 6 and 8 year old daughters are learning in Basic Tumbling and he is shooting targets at a distance and skill of a Basic Pistol student and is doing so into a backyard berm that is really awfully small for gymnastic firearms demonstrations and training.

I didn't know that the Mall Ninja had a brother.

Aw, I really liked the way he leaned back and used his own legs for cover.
Somehow, it seems like that just ain't going to work all that well...

Wow, 22 entire MONTHS of training. Clearly a world class expert. See how he didn't even shoot the camera man during any of those rolls? We could all learn a thing or 2 from this guy.

ROTFLAO!!

Probably hoping that Blackwater will call him with a job offer...

Maybe the bad guys are laughing so hard, they stop shooting.

What happened to the 180 degree rule? If I caught anyone doing that in my team I would make them do pushups until there were hand prints in the asphalt. Then again, I don't have 22 months of infantry training, I only have 12 months in Afghanistan, and have been in the guard for six years. That's probably why I don't know the dive-roll techniques. I bet my buddies in the 101ABN know that one.

Actually, during grenade training a few years ago a friend of mine did a cartwheel and then threw a practice grenade into a rucksack from 20m. It was funny with a practice grenade; would not have been so with a live M67 IMHO.

Well there you go, clearly, if you had 10 more months in an operational theatre you would understand his techniques.

Obviously doesn't apply to "trained professionals"

Obviously the Range Officers in the British Army absolutely failed to make any impression on this yahoo.

Hopefully if this guy is ever in a real gunfight he will do his backward roll and get castrated so as to not pollute the rest of the populace.

I don't think you understand. They actually teach this somersault crap to their students! They call it advanced tactical pistol training for security contractors, LOL!

Go here...
http://www.risks-inc.com/videos.html

Go down to Advanced Tactical Pistol Training for a video of students doing it.

Apparently, scanning the cameraman is common in their videos. Also see the ones called...
Tactical Weapons Training for PSD Operators
Counter Terrorism / Counter Insurgency and Swat Training in Latin America

Be sure to also check their Promo video at about 2:25
