Tim Larkin Banned in the UK? Is this for real?

Yes, it is.  Just recently, while trying to board his Las Vegas-to-England flight, self-defense expert Tim Larkin was denied entry to the country passed on him being deemed a “security risk.”

“I have a 12-year history of doing such seminars in the UK without incident,” he said.

Nevertheless, he was now prohibited from entering the country because of what the seminar attendees might do—specifically, use their newly acquired skills in riots.* (Black Belt Magazine)

Here on the Alex Jones Show, Tim discusses the details.

A big question, how are the self-defense instructors in the UK dealing with this and how might their business be affected? 

There are many great teachers there such as: Geoff Thompson, Lee Morrison and Richie Grannon to name a few.

We welcome your thoughts on this matter.  The lines are open!

  1. It is seriously unfortunate that the people in the UK will now not get the life-saving information that Tim provides.

  2. Saw the story on Facebook. That was one of the first thoughts that crossed my mind: what ARE the statuses of the British self-defense experts? I’m sure they will have to deal with this situation in some form or another.

  3. I haven’t heard much feedback from any other UK instructors on this matter. Not too sure why. I wrote an entire blog post on the matter. Perhaps it’s a case of, well, it doesn’t really affect me or my business, so why should I care? Maybe this will have future repercussions, or maybe it won’t. I don’t know. The government does stupid things like this all the time. They once banned Alice Cooper from playing here. Said his show was too violent for the public! They were lead by the media back then as they are now. If the media picks up on something, the government, thinking of future votes and public opinion, feels like it has to act. Ridiculous, but that’s how it goes unfortunately. The ban will probably be quietly lifted eventually, once the media have stopped looking.
