This episode we have John Valentine back on to talk about the upcoming Combatives Summit 2, as Eric calls it "the TacCon of Combatives." This event will be held at American Top Team of D'lberville Mississipi 20-22 Sep 2024. There is no question, there is a movement inside self-defense and the typical fi****ms culture, the fully capable fighter with weapons is taking hold and this is the event to hone that acumen. In addition, the networking and high level of the attendees alone is worth the price of admission…GET SIGNED UP for a lifetime memory and the betterment of your skills. Eric attended last years event, he knew it was going to be epic, but it was 10x better.

Excellent example of the pistol float… before I sound like I never floated a pistol in this type of situation, my first few ECQCs I absolutely did… Guilty

It's not ok to send rounds off into the public or back into yourself.

The thumb pectoral is a developed retention position, validated on the range and under actual resistance with the consequence of marking rounds.

When you float the gun, you are firing from a position, not on your sights or designed to deconflict your own body.

Aaron here. Finally made it to BJJ after a couple of months. I love my gym Training Ground and my incredible coach Mat Reyna. I had a blast. I’ve had to protect my elbow for months… terrible tennis elbow. I still can’t shoot with both hands. Now I’m about to start peptide treatment recommended by Craig Douglas that helped him recovery from his terrible injury. Here’s to healing and getting after it.

Ep. 147 - Main platforms and YouTube below - Aaron Jannetti KCC – Knife Control Concepts - -
-

This show is a long time coming, Eric has been tracking what awesome work Aaron has been doing for several years, and frankly we should have had him on the show a long time ago. Just recently Eric was able to attended his instruction module at the storied Combatives Summit back in Sep 2023. Aaron teaches people how to deal with a knife attack using methods that are reductionist in nature, they stand up to legitimate pressure testing and are based on proven wrestling techniques that everyone should add to their tactical acumen. In addition to his work with knife defense, he is also a JiuJitsu coach, a fitness coach, and an accomplished fi****ms instructor as well, Owner/Lead Instructor at Endeavor Defense and Fitness. For everyone looking to improve in their personal safety, Aaron's coursework should be at the top of your list. .group

Aaron here. Any of you use the roughed in 50 yard zero from 10 yards? Trying out a Unity FAST riser for my 510. So I used this method to get zeroed quick. It’s right at 2.1 inches without the Holosun riser. I think I’m going to dig it! It was raining so I just went to 50 in steel, but was good to go.

USSA just announced they’ll no longer host (allow) IDPA and USPSA matches.
So I’ll no longer train at USSA. Their business will now focus on non-members that pay high prices for day passes. AND dropping memberships.
I’d suggest finding another range. Serious shooters don’t matter for business.
I’m blessed to have my own range anyway. The EvoSec range is running and will be expanding for classes and serious training. Thanks so much to at Training Ground for offering us a home!

Episode 143 of the EvoSec Podcast: Main platforms below or look for us on your favorite platform. YouTube will be up momentarily. This show we have two extremely pivotal guest, Sarah Adams and Dave “Boon” Benton. They are both survivors of the 2012 Benghazi, Libya attacks and are authors of the book, Benghazi Know Thy Enemy, A Cold Case Investigation. Many will recall the book “13 Hrs in Benghazi” and the Benghazi attacks themselves. Boon was one of the CIA GRS contractor whom went to the aid of Ambassador Chris Stevens and his staff at the Benghazi Consulate, and later defended the CIA Annex against al-Qa’ida terrorist. Sarah was a CIA analyst and the on the ground targeter for the Benghazi CIA Annex. Sarah was also a Senior Advisor to the US House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi.
Contrary to popular media accounts, these attacks were not the result of an anti-Islam YouTube video per the Obama administration, these attacks were planned by hardened al-Qa’ida terrorist, with the Consulate attack ordered by the leader of AQ Dr. Ayman al-Zawahiri.
In these attacks we lost four patriotic Americans: Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone “Rone” Woods, and Glenn “Bub” Doherty. This investigation is to help bring these terrorist to justice.

Ep. 140 - Main below or search for us on your favorite podcast. This episode we have the Jerry Wetzel on the show. This is long overdue! Eric has been interfacing with Jerry for close to 20 years via online forums like Total Protection Interactive and social media. He is a wealth of knowledge in weapons integration into the combat sports model yet completely from the context in the street environment. Jerry is a preeminent expert in reductionist solutions for dealing with a knife in the real world. Some of our most important mentors credit him with building a lot of what they do, Paul Sharp, Cliff Byerly and many more, yet Jerry humbly states that the exchange was mutual.
Just recently Eric finally was able to meet and train under Jerry at the Combatives Summit in Florida. The material was outstanding, life saving information that is changing Eric’s approach to knife defense. Jerry Wetzel Red Zone Threat Management
