Captain Jonathan Edwards, 101st Airborne/Air Assault:
"The Kill the Enemy video is the greatest work of modern combat of our time! In the dirty bloody world of combat there are no second place winners. In combat there is only Kill and come home. John trains you for just such an encounter. There is nothing in the world that can ever prepare you for the harsh cold reality of combat, but John Perkins has found a way to bridge the gap between school and real world no-holds-barred REALITY!"

Black Belt, Combat Hapkido:
I am extremely impressed with your concepts!! Since learning about your Guided Chaos theory of fighting in last September's Black Belt Magazine reality fighting issue, I have bought the Attack Proof book and all three of your tapes. I have also recommended them to just about anyone I've talked to about self-defense!
I'm very enthusiastic about your methodology because I've proven to myself it works. Until recently, I was stationed in Germany. There, I helped my instructor run a self-defense class for military members and dependents. After getting your book and tapes, I began incorporating your principles into my training and teaching. The difference was astounding!
Despite my previous experience in various martial arts, I always had a sense of uneasiness about whether the techniques would work in a flowing manner when it really mattered. After studying your material, I realized that pattern recognition and poor balance had been holding me back. From November until I moved to Virginia in July, I diligently incorporated your drills into my classes' training. Not only did my own fighting skills and confidence increase dramatically, but so did those of students with much less experience. We found that students who had never studied a fighting system before could defend themselves against unarmed and armed attackers at a basic, but very effective level within three months. What was particularly impressive was that they were able to handle unexpected scenarios and multiple attackers. Most importantly, your concepts of awareness cause them to think outside the box of traditional dojo/gym type training.
One thing before I sign off - Mr. Kovsky, magnificent work on the "Attack Proof" book! I've read many instructional books and been impressed by some more than others. The professional layout and clear, easy to apply description of complex concepts of "Attack Proof" are testament to your professional skills as a media professional. The result of your unified effort with Major Al and Grand Master Perkins is eye watering. What truly impresses me is how many valuable concepts are contained in such a relatively thin book. I'm sure I'll spend years trying to master them.
Now that I'm in the DC area, I plan to continue training with your concepts and hope to start training other Air Force members in self defense that is largely based on your theories.
After more that two years of training, I noticed that my fellow classmates and students were developing good basic fighting skills, but we seemed to lack something needed to make it flow and bring it all together. Enter Guided Chaos theory! After studying the Attack Proof material, I immediately saw how balance, rooted looseness, sensitivity, etc, could greatly enhance our ability to execute various techniques. I made drills in the book and the tapes a regular part of our workouts. I found the balance, anywhere strike, box step, fright reaction, preemptive strike and counter and parry exercises to be particularly beneficial.
I also soon recognized that the close quarters combat (CQC) skills emphasized in Attack Proof gave my fellow classmates and students an excellent fighting basis upon which to develop their other skills. Easy, instinctive actions were the key! I repeatedly told my students, "If you're surprised on the street or find a throwing or locking technique is not working, immediately shift into a flurry of CQC techniques!" Our class liked the fact that the CQC techniques were easy to apply to weapons scenarios as well.
I'm glad to say the application of Guided Chaos to our training was enormously successful. Our balance and power increased quickly. I also noticed that folks quickly learned to differentiate between the appropriate situations for striking and grappling techniques. We were moved to the States in July, so we're starting classes in California and Northern Virginia from scratch, however, the members of the group still in Germany are still going strong."

"John Perkins and his Attack Proof instructors created a comfortable atmosphere while teaching our group of teenage girls the fundamentals of self-defense. I would recommend the program and the wonderful instructors to anyone!"
