I just came across this gem! My Bullshido rader also just blew up in the process! I did a search and nothing came up.
Expect a group suicide in preperation to catch a comet some time soon!
Everyone that starts out at SWAN regardless of past Martial Arts experience and training begins as a novice. Someone that is dedicated to training and Martial Arts will progress to instructor status within around 6-months of solid training. It's expected that new students come with an open mind to training and technique. You will start with the basics of Hand-to-Hand combat, CQC, combative weaponry, dynamic body movement (combastics), learning the ranges and concepts of fighting & combat, embrace MMA sparring, outdoor skills, climbing, and stealth. The first part of your training will get you into shape, change your lifestyle and your mind set to undertake any challenges presented to you.
To achieve instructor rank at SWAN you must have completed six-months or more of solid training with SWAN in that which time you will have become proficient in a multitude of skills and techniques. Six months of solid training with SWAN is equivalent to around 3.5 years at your typical Dojo, you will have nearly 1,000 hours of applied training and will begin to learn more advanced techniques and training applying to fighting, combat, stealth, assassination, weaponry, survival, body movement, NLP, mind skills, nutrition, strength and conditioning etc. You will also be eligible to begin instructing students and members in your respective skills and expertise.
Time to achieve: 6-months
Earning this rank will take a lot of commitment and effort but the skills, techniques, and training you will receive are unmatched, we don't give black belts away to just anyone at SWAN. You must be dedicated, self motivated, adaptable, and adventurous. No one is ever considered a master and training should never stop but to achieve this master rank and be considered to earn entry into the inner part of the association you must successfully complete a year or more of solid training with SWAN. All students who earn this rank are free to train with SWAN at their leisure at no charge for the rest of their lives.
You will become an expert in MMA and full contact sparring with weaponry, survival, stealth, combative tactics, team training, free-running, combastics, and more.
Time to achieve: 12-months

"we don't give black belts away to just anyone at SWAN."
first your check has to clear then you have to physically stick around for a whole solid year!!!!
I'm sure they have a contract that will guarantee that!
I love the picture of the instructor. I don't have the time to insert it here...
It's a ninja, with a gun. Hilarious stuff.

Sign me up for the Mercenary/Anti Terrorism course. That'll look really good on my CV when I send it in to Blackwater.
EDIT: Didn't realise we were in MABS. What are you accusing them of, other than being a bunch of lamewads?

How fucking retarded.
And wow, 9 years, just long enough to become a brown belt in ONE of the disciplines that he mentions.
This quest spanned over 9 years

Actually, can we get a military tag to comment on the way he's moving around and aiming that gun, cause something looks rather off to me.
Oh and his rear naked choke is dead wrong.
