PHALANX – In ancient Greece, a group of heavily armed infantry soldiers formed in ranks and files, close and deep, with shields joined together and long spears overlapping. This formation (The Phalanx) was proven effective in many battles fought by the Spartans, especially when they were out-numbered, hence the modern day movie “300” On many occasions, Spartan soldiers were tasked to protect kings on long journeys from thieves, enemies, and assassins. If faced with an attack, the Spartan soldiers would form a protective shield with their bodies around the king. 


Fast forward to the 20th Century and the modern day “Spartan / Executive Protection Agent”. Much like its predecessor, the Executive Protection Agent uses similar protection tactics and strategies in protecting his/her client from potential dangers. Whether it be protection formations, such as the classic “Diamond Formation” EP agents are skilled operators in providing effective close protection to their clients.
