Evolution Security Podcast

May 26, 2022

This episode we are pumped to have Walt Settlemyre of The Distinguished Savage Podcast on the show.  Walt is quickly becoming a great friend from a far, is a likeminded dude and is a true renaissance man walking the walk.  He is a US Army veteran (11B Infantry), Spear Instructor, GST Level 1 Instructor, Shivworks ECQC alum, has trained with Cliff Byerly of Hill Country Combatives, Tony Blauer and much more.  He also currently trains at 10th Planet JiuJitsu Austin. 

Walt is a veteran in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and runs the Medic Safety classes of his agencies academy.  He incorporates Shivworks MUC and wrestling and JiuJitsu, and Spear principles to prepare candidates to deal with possible violent encounters with patients.

Unfortunately for part of this episode we discuss the tragedy in Uvalde TX, the lefts politicization, and our non-expert opinions on how to make these active killing events far less frequent. 

We then move into Walt’s expertise in EMS, his training background, his choices for tourniquets, upcoming events and much more.

To find more on Walt find him on Instagram @the.distinguished.savage or email him at
