CHINA-HAINAN-SANYA-VIP PROTECTION-BODYGUARD TRAINING PROGRAM (CN)
(120319) -- SANYA, March 19, 2012 (Xinhua) -- A VIP bodyguard candidate breaks through a human barrier during a special training program held by Genghis Security Advisor (GSA), a professional VIP protection service provider, in Sanya, south China's Hainan Province, March 19, 2012. Thirty-six bodyguard candidates, including ten females, took part in the four-week training program which kicked off here on Sunday. Made up of army veterans, athletes and college students, the candidates will take combat, driving and etiquette lessons given by experienced drillmasters and anti-terrorist experts during the program. The increasing need for private bodyguards in today's China is spurred by a growing number of rich people and stars after the country embraced the Reform and Opening-up policy in the late 1970s.
