There is quite a bio for another instructor, "Doctor Professor" who gets to make up his own uniform, complete with cammy beret and "U.S. Army" above a nametape.


Professor Leonard C. Holifield, C.P.S., Ph.D./MS.

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.

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

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - President Theodore Roosevelt, 1910

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.

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.

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
