CLP07 – The Problem with Real World Experience & Self-Defense Expertise w/ Ben from Redbeard Combatives

January 14, 2021

My guest today is Ben from Redbeard Combatives, a 2nd degree black belt in BJJ in the Carlson Gracie lineage and an experienced trainer for both the U.S. Government and Private Security sectors.

In this episode, Ben draws on his 15+ years conducting trainings to reveal the potential weaknesses of what’s often called “real world experience” — and how proper training environments can fill in the gaps there.

This episode is challenging to conventional wisdom in the reality-based self-defense and military combatives world…but listen to his points carefully.
