Dubai's Angels

This is a photo of a Dubai Police Special Unit hand-picked, hired and trained to act as bodyguards to heads of state, ministers, top officials and their families, particularly women, and other people of importance visiting Dubai.

Highly skilled at rappelling, fighting skills, anti-riot management, boxing, karate and tae kwon do. In addition to being multi-lingual, trained to abseil from helicopters wearing battle-packs, maneuver high speed Yamaha superbikes, be sharpshooters with 9mm handguns, they are also required lay down lives to protect those put under their care.

All I can add is that if you can do all of the above AND perch on one shoulder while maintaining your weapon, you are a bad ass.

Oh, and this Special Unit is all-female. Even more bad ass.

Love it.
