    [QUOTE=BudoCanuck;2698227]Ok, believe what you want.

    There is nothing, nor have I ever said nor insinuated that there is something "SOOPER SEKRET" about me!

    If you have sensible questions that are asked in a sensible manner I will answer them.





    Sir, as there are many serving (or have served) members of this forum, myself included would you mind telling us a little about your service? I am generally not familiar with British military so please break it down a bit for your cousins across the pond. I am most interested in what MOS (occupation) you served in (Cavalry, Infantry, Cook, Medic etc etc). I am also interested in what you taught, mainly because I am unsure what type of combatives you taught (like our Modern Army Combatives, or MCMAP). Was systema something you added in to your own personal training and then taught in a "free-exchange" setting or was it part of the program? Thanks for your service and your candor. Also have you thought of applying for a military tag (like those of us that have them)?

    That's the one. ArmyRanger.com didn't out him I did. He came on the radar from MySpace and MAP and when I noticed it was in the same city I had to get it I posted it on here, MAP, and SOCNET and let it go from there.

    I was originally in A Company 1st Battalion Scots Guards (armoured infantry), 3 years, then after doing selection twice, I served 9 years in 2 Para.

    I was a medic.

    I have taught BOTH in an official capacity and as an exchange of ideas and skills.

    The main focus of my input was Yoshinkan, however through the Army I was lucky enough to learn from many other nationalities and styles... Krav Maga, Systema, BJJ, Hung Ga, JKD.

    If you have any more sensible and non inflammatory questions I'd be happy to answer them.

    As for adding a "Military Tag" I assumed that you had to be a paying member to qualify.

    Have you found yoshinkan aikido to be useful as a supplement to other military hand-to-hand training (e.g. useful when sparring etc.)

    What were your years of service? Were you part of any of the peace-keeping missions (NATO) in the Balkans?
    Thank you for your candor in answering the other questions.

    Is there an official system of combatives in use by the British Army in general, or the Scots Guards in particular? If so, did you instruct in that combatives system?

    No, not specifically. It is mainly Jujitsu and Krav Maga based though. The SAS use Goshinkwai and pretty much everything else that they can train in. Before anyone asks, no I have never trained hand to hand with them. And no I was never officially a hand to hand instructor mandated by the Army, I was however an official instructor in Army clubs, very involved through my own interest and skill set.
