Shaffer Security Group (SSG) has invited John to be a part of our “Training Cadre” for both our Military/Police and Civilian Tactical Courses.  John is an outstanding instructor and you will be amazed at his knife fighting techniques, skills, and knowledge.

John has been studying martial arts since 1997 and has been actively teaching since 2008.  He has trained in and taught several martial arts systems, including Old School Jeet Kune Do, Boxing, Muay Thai, Wing Chun Kung Fu, Jiu-Jitsu, WW2 Era Combatives, and several Filipino systems including Pekiti Tirsia Kali and the Inosanto/Lacoste Blend.

John is the co-founder of the “Raptor System” of Close Quarters Combat, which has been distilled from over four decades of combined experience in study, training, and fighting in the martial arts.  The system is adaptive in nature and is equally effective in any range with empty hand combat or weaponry.  Rooted in the proven fundamental principles of warfare, it is simple and efficient and can be utilized by anyone including Military, LEO, or civilian.
