Who Is ‘Ginge’ Johnson?

Everyone who is anyone in CP knows ‘Ginge’, but if you don’t know him here is some info about Ginge.

‘Ginge’ served in the British Army for 18 years, 13 of which were spent in the 22nd Special Air Services Regiment.

During this time, he developed a wide range of skills including counter-terrorism and VIP protection.

Ginge joined the private sector in 1990 and has worked for a number of private security companies operating as an international security consultant.

He has experience working for Government officials, multi-national companies and senior executives and has become recognised as one of the leading experts in the field of VIP protection and business security.

Over the years Ginge has been responsible for the training of various close protection teams and operated exclusively as a security coordinator within high and low-level personal protection.

During the past 10 years, Ginge has been involved in designing and delivering security awareness and personal safety/conflict management training for high network corporations families living or travelling to high-risk regions worldwide.

Currently, Ginge has been asked to be part of a Close Protection Expert Group with the Security Industry Authority to review the current National Occupational Standards with the SIA in relation to Conflict Management and Situational Awareness within Close Protection, to bring it more up to date with the needs of current close protection operatives.

So this is your chance to train and learn from a very experienced and well-respected professional who will personally teach you his well-proven tried and tested methods and systems.

Knife Awareness and Defences Now Included!

As we are all aware there is a knife epidemic in the UK, which many people feel is out of control that has resulted in more than 30 deaths in London alone since the start of 2019.

This has resulted in many martial artists and self-defence trainers teaching ‘knife defence courses’, where they teach people to physically defend themselves against someone armed with a knife – but could they be actually increasing the risk as opposed to reducing it?

As a result, Ginge has agreed to cover this subject on the ‘Two-Day Close Protection, Situational Awareness, Conflict Management and Physical Intervention Course’ that he is running in August.

But why listen to Ginge, when there are so many others now offering training in this area?

This is why!

Ginge Johnson has been involved in Close Protection for over twenty-five years since leaving the Special Air Service Regiment.

He has operated in virtually every hostile environment on earth. There is literally no-where that Ginge hasn’t operated in.

At one time he was flying around to various parts of the world between five – fifteen times a month on executive protection duties, training assignments and going into environments that the police, national guard and local militia would advise not to or wouldn’t go into. This is how much in demand Ginge’s services where and are.

During those times he has been confronted with many conflict situations which included a knife, and it was his training, knowledge, awareness and experience and skill that kept him and the people he was looking after safe.

On this course in August Ginge has agreed to teach his tried and tested system for dealing with situations these types of situations.

He has also agreed for me to film him giving that presentation which will be made available to everyone attending the course.
