Again the men in the clips wearing the OD Green and or Camo Uniforms ,with and without Berets are SERE Instructors NOT Guy Savelli.
The instructors had 36 lessons under Mr Savelli and then incorporated some of that training into the Basic SERE course as taught at the Q course or the SERE school proper.
These things were taught not as tricks,but to enhance the mental ability of the students to enable them ,as Nick Rowe hoped,to have better focus,focus of power,mental ability to carry on through basic injuries and to keep a clear mental focus if they were captured by the enemy.
If one reads books written by POW's they will see the importance many of the men/POW's placed on Mental focus to stay strong and to seperate themselves from some of the events that happened to them as POW's.
Guy Savelli was not contracted for over 7 years because he was teaching party/karate tricks.
Nick ROWE was definately NOT interested in teaching men Party Tricks,he was teaching what to him was a Very Important aspect of training,SURVIVAL.
Was your friend in SF ?
If not in SF or other Spec Ops units that Savelli had access to then I doubt he can speak on what and why things were taught by Savelli to these units.
I am speaking to the clips of Savelli's teachings to the SERE Instructors and students,not to Savelli's teaching outside of that environment.
The insinuation of him being a Walter Mitty pertains to his association with the US Military,which he did indeed have and had for MANY Years,not to peoples thinking that what he taught was real or pseudo science of chi and focus.
