    I think the only correct response to the question, as Permalost suggested is:

    Wow. Northern Virginia must be an incredibly safe place to walk the streets at night. I know I won't be trying to steal any parking spaces at Tyson's Corner Mall. I don't want to piss off the wrong person.

    Do the employees get time-off during the day to learn this stuff? Or do they just go to immersion courses and come out a couple of weeks later as Judo shodan? I'm truly fascinated. How do you know about this?

    I read this Tom Clancy book once, it was based on a video game that was his idea. I think it was called Splinter Cell. The main character was a superspy who was expert at Krav Maga. But mostly he snuck around in the dark with special night-vision goggles. That was cool.
    I've heard that there is no such agency that trains in Jeet Kune Do and Kali.

    I would suggest that the average CIA agent has more training in Microsoft Office than in martial arts.

    I guess he is sort of right. Someone in family was accepted into the training program and had a white belt in judo.

    You all have missed the reason for all the secrecy, surrounding this Aussie's CIA training! The reason it is so secret, is because, if everybody streamed the Born series simultaneously, it would be tantamount to crossing the streams in Ghostbusters! It's way too risky!
    Who would want his student out there, spreading word about one of his sources of income, when his only means of advertisement is word of mouth?

    ...or maybe Steven Seagal, doesn't want anyone to know he's in Australia?!

    Damn! Now I will never get my magic pants!!!

    When it comes to martial arts generally "secret" equals crap. The most effective arts are also the most open and accessible: Boxing, wrestling, judo, BJJ, MT, MMA. Everyone I know in Govt service that can handle themselves train those, on their own. I dont know anyone who can handle themselves based on what they were taught in any agency basic course, that's fantasy.

    I call shenanigans. Why would they train that garbage? Obviously super spies train the Krav and Ninjutsu. Duh! I mean: ninjas. And the Krav is good enough for the Israeli commandos and Splinter Cell. Tom Clancy can't be wrong. What do you know about the secrets behind barbed wire and chain link fences?
