    Also, are you accusing him of fraud?

    This does not belong in MABS.

    Before errant108 gets his banhammer warmed up....Navy SEALs and Army SF don't actually do alot of hand to hand fighting in their military missions. They usually shoot people for the most part. You watch too many movies. I suppose some of the sneaky uppy and silently kill the lone sentry stuff comes in handy but I'd hardly concider that "fighting".

    Look sheepfucker, the MABS forum is for investigations. Do you feel that Mr. Heckler is worth investigation beyond your "I don't wanna do basic research for myself so I'll as you guys" questioning?

    Heckler has t43 aikido bona fides and is a very smart cookie, and yes, he really was a senior instructor for the Trojan Warrior project, teaching SF soldiers. The idea wasn't so much to teach them aikido as hand to hand combat, but to use it to increase their awareness skills, etc. There were numerous other skills taught during the project and it was considered a great success, although by the end of it some of the soldiers were starting to question whether they wanted to stay soldiers. Then, AFAIK, there was a change in command and the new Top Guy hated the idea and canned the project.

    "In Search of the Warrior Spirit" is an excellent book.
