Mike is my type of warrior. He is very cerebral, he’s a bit of a philosopher and an intellectual as well as a physical specimen. I believe this is what the evolution of man was supposed to look like rather than many of the things we see in today’s version of American masculinity. I always appreciate learning that a man has developed himself internally and physically. Mike is a successful businessman who created enough of a win in life to cash his chips in, on a previous career in banking and then go into a career in law enforcement. To me achieving these levels of success in both business and modern-day warrior-ship says a lot about an individual’s internal and external potency. I’ve also noticed two more things that make Mike very special to me, he understands what Leonardo da Vinci meant when he talked about how “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Simply take a look at his free target, simple yet extremely telling and requires a certain level of efficacy in order to execute properly.

At the same time, much of his content is centered around thinking outside of the box, nonstandard problem-solving and real-world combat considerations. Mike has the luxury of leveraging his real-world experiences on the streets to improve the quality of his training regimen. Recently I attended one of his courses and was so impressed that it inspired me to do a full course review (see link below).
