Evolution Security Podcast

Aug 22, 2021

This episode we welcome back Cecil Burch of Immediate Action Combatives for a third time!  Cecil holds the record for most appearances and said on the air that he would have to ensure that no one took his lead....hehe! -  We do an After Action Review of the Immediate Action Jiu-Jitsu and Pugilism seminar we hosted in Tulsa OK 16-18 July 2021.  The course was very transformative for all the students, frankly it had some of the same impactful learning experiences as Shivworks ECQC.  Eric and Aaron speak on some hard learned lessons they experienced during the weekend, lessons that audience members may learn from as well.  

Also a very important discussion was on the value of simulation and force on force training with simple blue guns.  We all loose sight of the fact that we do not have to use simunitions or UTM all the time to get value.  Blue gun work has 80-90 percent of the value and is way easier and cheeper to implement.   

Per the discussion on the show please pick up the book Safe Force on Force Firearms Simulations By Ralf Mroz

Cecil Burch is a like long martial artist training in a multitude of systems for over 40 years.  Some of the systems have been Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Martial Arts under Dan Inosanto and Paul Vunak, he has trained in Thaiboxing, western boxing, Sevate and Pentjak Silat and many more.  Currently Cecil’s primary focus is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in which he has a Black Belt under the legendary Megaton Diaz.  Furthermore Cecil is an avid shooter and is a part of the Shivworks Collective which is a scholarship of the finest minds in integrated martial arts, combining combative sports modalities with force on force stress inoculation using sims guns and training blades to pressure test those modalities.
