Alternatively, Shimon Peres could hire the Gracie family members for bodyguards, since their arm-crossing technique appears to be in accord with the pre-natal prana of Gaia.
*edit* P.S. correction -- the Gracies, if hired, would actually not be standing up, but be on their backs on the ground, 'cause that's what their art is all about. Which would make it a bit harder to blend in and to properly observe the surroundings... Hmmm.... Back to the drawing board!
although they could claim it is some sort of defence against someone who is on a gun rampage
