Chris Bradford, author of the Young Samurai and Bodyguard series, came to the Preparatory School to talk to the Year 6 + 7's and sign their books.
The children learnt the secrets of how to become a professional bodyguard, from how to stand, what to wear and how to defend someone from an attack.
The whole visit was packed with surprises; he planted a secret surveillance camera in the room, used a defence move on a pupil and made two pupils eat dead insects!
Chris is a true believer in 'method-writing', he completed a close protection course to become a professional bodyguard for his new series, he is also trained in iaido, karate, ninjutsu and has a black belt in Zen Kyu Shin Taijutsu.
He finished the talk by signing the children's books - they cannot wait to read them!
