comment What do I need to keep in mind when picking a martial art as a bouncer?
Sure, but from my perspective that doesn't significantly impact the art you choose. Good conditioning, knowledge of locks and strikes, etc and then you make a decision in the situation the degree of force that is warranted.

There is also a thread for discussing the topicality of recommendation questions. I think the question could be better phrased as "what do I need to keep in mind/look for when choosing a martial art as a bouncer?"

comment Shoulder Tension
My current art has a lot of structural similarity to aikido in this respect, and uses some of the same concepts of energy. Certainly something I can focus on more.

comment Training Body Reading Without Sparring
That's a really excellent approach for learning to read the other person as a matter of personal work. Not quite what I am looking for since I am looking for drills to train others with, but I may adapt it as a way of explaining how to frame it.
