To whom it may concern;

I am writing this letter in regard to the recent training received from Lt. Col Al Ridenhour USMC and the Attackproof team under the guidance of Close Combat Master John Perkins.
 
I have been a Police Officer for 18 years. I am the Element Leader of our Tactical Team and a Defensive Tactics Instructor. I have been to many schools, classes and seminars throughout my career in the Marine Corps and in law enforcement. Unquestionably, the training in basic World War II type methodology mixed with John Perkins' Guided Chaos philosophy has enhanced my defensive tactics and those of our training division.
 
During the training, many myths were dispelled and the "anything goes" philosophy of Guided Chaos answers the question "Why doesn't our institutional Defensive Tactics work when we need it to?"
 
The training we have received from the Attackproof team has profoundly influenced the way our operator and instructors train and teach.

                    Respectfully,
       Detective Michael Goldman
