I remember Jordan. He was with one of the teams going through SOT at Mott Lake back in the day. All I'll say is he was (and apparently is) a competent martial artist.

If I did know them they would have to cut my head off and put it in a safe:D

The sites lists:

"Other Members Include:

Blue Curran

I can vouch for Ron Donvito as being the Close Combat Institute instructor hired by 1st SWTG(A) to train SFQC instructors and some of the SFQC students while I was there.

Mattoon is a great breacher, CQB expert, and all around good guy, but I do not think of him as a martial arts instructor.


pennywise 09-30-2008 23:49

voucher for 1 individual
If the Robbie Robinson is "Dave Robinson" SGM retired, 7TH GP (Halo extraordinaire).I will vouch for him. He always went by et al "Robbie".

I went through Phase One with him, he was my Patrol's Sr NCO, and as I remember he was as much a instructor as a fellow student and worked well with our TACS. Short guy as I recall. I probably owe him a beer or three thinking back on the day.

JihadJilson 10-02-2008 19:11

There is a retired SGM Robinson working at G-8 USASOC. He used to be the Co SGM at (then F Co out at Camp Mackall) circa 2000 - not sure if its the same guy or not - just providing info.

After reading 'Prof' Holifields bio, it jogged my memory back to a Spc. that started a hand to hand 'thing' for a unit in corps artillery on Bragg back around the mid 90s. I am pretty sure it is the same guy. There was a write up on it in the Paraglide. I have to question his Phd credentials though.

Welcome to the Danger Zone!

I haven't decided which part of the Doctor Professor's video is my favorite; the dramatic demonstrations or the students attempts at a good warrior stance.

I was training with Myong Mayes & Master-Wolf on Yadkin when I took some classes from him in the Matta-Mile.

Stay safe.

I worked with Larry Jordon in 5th GRP in 89-90. He was a martial arts extraordinaire back then and apparently still is. I'll always remember when 1SG Jordon discovered that I played the Guitar. I was soon volunteered to sing Christmas carols with Larry and his wife at the VA Hospital, without practice. Larry sounds like Elmore Fudd and is I believe tone def.

I also worke with Robbie Robinson out at Camp Mackall, he wasn't into alot of martial arts that I recall but was one hell of a fisherman....

Good men....jd
