He should have taken some time to at least learn some basic Boxing skills at least he would not have wasted his time and effort on something useless.
I question anyone who walks into a forum with actual cops and martial artists and kicks the party off with lingo like "operator", "UOF", "skillset", "functionality", "VIP Protection", "stress-based research", "tactical breathing", "stress innoculation", and "SOF circles", all in the same introductory post, and then expects to be taken seriously on *any* level.
Spend any time around real Police Officers and the first thing you will learn is they are a tough crowd and you'd better bring your A game. Bullshit will just get you strung up.
What made me fall in the floor laughing was the COMBATO and DEFENDO DODO, my first thought was, OK, so your exerienced in other failed and worthless systems, great where do we sign up I could use a good laugh.
That and the "It takes years to lean...." other skills.
Obviously the guy knows nothing about police and military combatives since it is pretty fine tuned now days, most of the moves are simple, easy to learn and remember and work in most cases, sounds like he is working with knowledge from the 60s or something.
Well spoken (or typed, I guess.) It alarms me to see so many in our profession take virtually no interest in developing/improving their physical skill set/condition. So many of us seem to forget that complacency kills.

Take care and stay safe.
