Kevin Smith

Kevin has actively worked in the Security Industry for nearly thirty years. This is coupled with over thirty five years of ongoing  Martial Arts Training in various styles.  

By starting off as a  crowd controller and Security Officer, then progressing to Municipal  Law Enforcement, Body Guarding and Close Personal Protection, Kevin gained a  sound knowledge of the requirements for physical security and Tactical Training. This assisted Kevin in developing one of the first Defensive Tactics training programs to be delivered in Western Australian when Security Officer licensing and training became a mandatory requirement for employment in the security industry.  Further  positions within the security industry have included Security Guard  Manager for a government agency, Security Manager and Counter Terrorism Operator  for a premium venue in Bali , Indonesia as well as  diverse experience providing tailored electronic and communications solutions within the security industry. 

For fourteen years until 2018 Kevin was responsible for the development and delivery of all Defensive Tactics Training, including Empty Hand Control, Baton, Handcuffs, OC Spray and Civil Disorder training, to Transit Officers employed by  the Public Transport Authority and currently  trains  contract Security Officers working on the Transperth Bus Network. Kevin has also delivered tactical training to numerous other public and private organisations such as Serco – Department of Immigration, City Of Perth, Crown Casino, Department of Housing and many others. Kevin provides this training through his business “The Training Compound” and also currently  works in Training and Development for “Tactical Conflict Solutions” a Perth based RTO  providing aggressive behaviour management, self defence and emergency response team training to healthcare staff situated all throughout Western Australia.

Kevin has a passion for tactical training and is a firm believer in the  continuous improvement and updating of his personal skill set. This is  to  ensure  students are trained in proven, effective, lawful and current methods representing best practice in Defensive Tactics training.
