Church

Church

John growing up was not a Christian. In his teenage years he was introduced to witchcraft and eventually moved into Satanism. While in the Army John was introduced to Christianity by his squad leader and gave his life to Christ 2 days before leaving for Ranger School. In 1995 John made the decision to leave the Army and pursue a call to preaching. He graduated from Bible College in 2000 and he moved to Ft. Campbell, KY where he planted a church.

Fighting

Fighting

With over 60 pro fights in the early days of MMA John was a pioneer in Mixed Martial Arts. He won 6 World Titles, was voted the King of Leg Locks, and had the KO of the Year in the world in 2008. John was inducted into the MMA Hall of Fame. It was this background that allowed John to begin training Special Forces.

Military

Military

John's time in the military led him to some of the most difficult courses the United States Army had to offer. He enlisted as an infantryman in 1993 which eventually led him down the path to be an Army Ranger. It was during this time in the Army that he developed leadership skills that perfectly complimented his existing warrior skills and mindset.  This created new and unique opportunities for him to pursue. 

John has developed a very unique set of skills throughout his life, so when the opportunity came available for him to train soldiers for the US Army; John embraced this opportunity with open arms. John was the first civilian certified by the Army to train soldiers and has direct influence on several of the cutting-edge trainings that all soldiers go thru in the military today.

Johns awards include the KY Colonel, Lone Operator, Mobile Protection, Conceal Carry in Hostile Countries, and SFAUC.  John also helped develop the current military doctrine in the Master Combatives Course.
