Would any of you see small security as a joke

Hi just curious since I've got a job as security and I'm probably gonna start next week

well i'm 5'2 and I weight 145. So im pretty small. If you saw small security would think I wouldn't be able to do anything and be seen as a joke? Just wondering nothing serious

    Never judge a book by it's cover lads.

    No I don't think so, as long as you can do the job and you are confident within yourself, all good.

    I'm a security guard and honestly size is not an issue, It is the old guy, or lazy asses like me, and some women too (not really any nice ones).

    It really depends on what aspect of "security" you are speaking of. "Security" is a very broad term.

    You will get a lot of crap from people being the size that you are at most clubs. If I were working as a bouncer, then to be honest, unless a person of your size was extremely skilled, I would not want you "watching my back", so to speak. Nothing personal, but when shi* goes down, I want to know that the person(s) I am working with will be able to hold their own.

    No not a joke, but to be fair small guys are at a disadvantage in a fight, I know this and everyone else knows this

    (Apart from some small guys who say stuff like "it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the panda in the elevator" or whatever nonsense they come out with lol)

    in my opinion if you are worried about not being taking seriously, then you pronbably dont believe deep down that you should be taken seriously, and probably aint cut out for it.

    TBH and i dont wish to offend, i think heights more of a problem than weight.

    I do know guys who are light and still very good on the doors, but they tend to be tallish or tall.

    Ive known some very handy boxers, around your height and weight, one was very high level indeed, but i think, or even know deep down that he would have struggled on the door, where guys kicking off can be any size or weight you can imagine,

    Cheers, Rich

    I think you will be picked on coz of your size just dont take any sh*t act like a British Bull Dog lol

    If you ended up being known as a doorman not to be messed with that would help you out

    Other than that best of luck shorty (just joking)

    i wouldnt treat any small bouncer any different to a huge 6ft bouncer for the simple reason a club i used to go to had a less than 5ft bouncer on the door someone messed with him thinking he would be an easy target
    well he wasnt and the bloke got a right beating

    as above, the respect of clubbers may not be as high as with someone who was slightly more physically imposing

    although not a problem in a fight, the likelyhood of a fight, or any sort of trouble may increase if the drunks feel there is a weak link

    with the stats you have given we may have a small boxer, martial artist or MMA fighter...but this is not what a group of gary lagers are going to see when they think they have become a bit 'ard

    why not try security work elsewhere and learn the ins and outs and become good at the job

    a guy i work with does door work in the evenings, he's only about 5'4 but no one mess's with him. probably due to most people knowing he holds a black belt, 5th dan in karate . if you act confident you should be ok

    all natural, no proteenz, you only got one liver son------mr angry (jacked fibras cut like diamonds)
