I've noticed that one company (TSK) uses nearly the SAME ad copy for everything they distribute.

Because Cucci doesn't have any products listed at at commercial SEAL store, that means he was never an instructor? That's your "evidence"?!"Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

I know Frank, and I also know a few Navy SEALs who trained under Frank. He's the real deal.
You can disagree with his marketing, but its not Bullshido

I'm just skeptical of his claims of initiating NSW Close Combat, which only comes up on search engines with his name with it.Kungfoolss, Scourge of the theory-based stylists, Most Feared man at Bullshido.com, and the Preeminent Force in the martial arts political arena

KFS is correct, it was probably an unofficial course, which is predominate in military hand to hand training."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

What is common is for an instructor - whether legit or bullshido - to have an operator, or groups of operators, train at their schools. They can make a legit claim to have then trained SEALs, SF, D boys, FR, Rangers, PJs, S/S, etc...but that is often framed in a way which makes it sound more official and structured than what it really is. It is wise to apply a healthy dose of skepticism to ANYONE who makes any claim about training these groups. 90% of time it's going to involve a considerable amount of puffing (to establish questionable bonafides).
