    the question about the fire and all was directed at Omega, but it's also good to know you're ok, you seem like a nice enough guy! ;-)

    Well there are fires going on near Brent too. I'm fine but I'm more worried for my mother in law who lost her house and all her personal belongings, my wife who grew up in that house, and my two friends who are suffering from 2nd and 3rd degree burns.

    I pretty sure that the fires are quite a distance from my house. I love Legends in Hollywood, because you can run into all sorts of people there. Eddie Bravo is another guy that I have picked his brain for techniques and he is there all the time.

    That's a funny situation. You being a cop and him being a pot head. Is there any awkward moments?

    yeah but he's a california cop, so that's like saying that a new york cop would find it awkward being friendly with a habitual jaywalker.

    Well, no awkward moments really... He understands my position and doesn't try and force anything on me. His love for smoking a doobie here, there and everywhere is the reason that I can't have an official association with him, no matter how good he is.

    I would love to work with him on ground techniques for officers, however, simply due to his love for that plant, puts any official association out of the question.

    I could never had him come teach at the "Force Instructor" seminars, no matter how good he is or how much he has to offer.

    Funny thing is that when I first started talking with him, I asked him if he had anything against the Police, and he said he doesn't. I also have to say that he is truly a nice guy, and in my opinion a great fighter and instructor.

    Of course, as usual, he has a very high level of natural ability that I can never teach officers, such as flexability. Cops wearing tailored pants, body armor, gunbelts can't really pull "rubber guard" or do anything Eddie does, so I wanted to work specific escapes with him. His teaching, seminar schedule and training among other things prevented us from ever really working on stuff together, which was probably good for my career. Even though pot isn't a "big deal" in most people's minds, it can be a very bad career move for a cop just through association.

    Did you ever ask him how he felt about 9/11 and other conspiracies?
    He's a weird one, great grappler, but has some weird ideas.

    Nope, I haven't sat down and had any long conversations with him other than in regards to techniques and the problems faced by Law Enforcement due to the equipment and how that limits techniques...

    This caption, from Frank Dux's MySpace is interesting:

    No joke dare ask my heir apparent, SWAT expert/instructor Officer Brent Ambrose how I taught him how to duck a bullet, ala Executioner Novel
    So, I'm asking.

    Hi Brent:

    I have a question. There is a controversy over whether Frank Dux told people in the 1980s that he had:

    1) Seen combat in vietnam and/or southeast asia as a marine.

    2) Earned decorations for such combat.

    Did he ever tell you #1 or #2 and if so what were his stories?
