The SEALs training,as I have said before,is not limited, they have the doors open and bring in hundreds of trainers a year to present a product or do a demo,if they like what they see they will bring in SEAL or Spec Ops instructors to evaluate,test and keep what is useful and dump the rest,most times including the guy who brought it.
Lets face it a whole system is not needed bit if they find one or two things of interest they will train it and evaluate it and maybe bring it into the tool box.
SEALs are not the only ones,these guys make the circuit ,SF,Delta,Rangers,Force Recon on and on,once you have the foot in the door the word spreads if it is worth while.
Once Peterson had his foot in the door he had World wide militaries at his door as well as world wide Police units,but the door closes as fast as it opens and now he sells his videos and maybe has people come to pay big bucks to train with him,but he is out of Military Business.
The people in Black Belt who claim to teach the SEALs and Spec Ops are not lying,if you have a decent skill level and offer to come in and Demo(the sellers call it training the Spec Ops)you get a little thank you letter and you go on to the next unit.
Most times H2H is a unit of Training in the forming phase,like BUDs for SEALs and after that training is catch as Catch can,if lucky Team members know something and the Team gets training.
Hicks SAFTA was SCARS,he jumped on the band wagon,and as a Real SEAL he was more cedible than Peterson or Larkin and he made some money and becasue he was a Real Seal he has a sellable skill even if SCARS/SAFTA is crap.
Larkins new TFT may have good points,but again look at what consitutues Training the Spec Ops(demoing your skill) he and others use this to make it look like they are world wide Instructors on call,most send letters saying they will come and teach and the units say yes and they get credit and take Headlines like "I train the Spec Ops community of the World",it is all misleading ,liying crap.
Lets remember,Larkin Lied to get a shot at BUDS,He lied that he was a SEAL(now retracted in print) and he lies about how Battle ready his crap is.
He is a Salesman selling a false story,if you buy it you are buying into a liar.
Hock,for example teaches many classes abroad and many military units either have him come or they attend his seminars,if he was like these Hype salesmen he would say" I train US Spec Ops,I train the USMC,I train the SAS/SBS"
these would be his headlines to catch people rather than having a product which people can relate to.
Hocks products sell,not so for these others.
These Liars and Hype headliners get a person to come once and few come back a second time,some groupies will pay the big bucks becasue they think the lies are based in some truth.
The Product tells the story and most of these guys get washed away when the truth is out about their products,and most of the products are crap and the reviews of their materials online tells you so.
If the product on video is crap the in person material is also crap.
Most of those who pay these big buck fees do so because they write off the training as an expense,they say it is good because they do not want to be seen as having been coned or ripped off,but they know they were.
The Hype is a sales pitch to the gulible.
Here is the Truth THERE IS NO SECRET TRAINING BEING DONE BY ANY SPEC OPS UNIT ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.
( a punch is punch a kick is a kick,learn to use them and how to defend against them and you know the SECRETS)
