Evolution Security Podcast

Dec 8, 2023

This episode we have the Jerry Wetzel on the show.  This is long overdue!  Eric has been interfacing with Jerry for close to 20 years via online forums like Total Protection Interactive and social media.  He is a wealth of knowledge in weapons integration into the combat sports model yet completely from the context in the street environment.  Jerry is a preeminent expert in reductionist solutions for dealing with a knife in the real world.  Some of our most important mentors credit him with building a lot of what they do, Paul Sharp, Cliff Byerly and many more, yet Jerry humbly states that the exchange was mutual. 

Just recently Eric finally was able to meet and train under Jerry at the Combatives Summit in Florida.  The material was outstanding, life saving information that is changing Eric’s approach to knife defense.
