Come hear from one of our own students who survived to tell her story!


Michael Donvito is no stranger to us by any stretch of the imagination. He's been working with us since 2014.

Michael is a martial artist with 32+ years of experience. He has earned 10 black belts during that time, most notably a 5th Degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Master Carlos Machado.

While building his experience in martial arts, Michael expanded his expertise in close combat and related subject matter. For the last 22+ years, Michael has dedicated himself to training the US military.

The majority of this time has been serving the US Special Forces and Special Tactics communities.  He has been the primary close combat Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the Special Forces Qualifications “Q” Course and the Special Tactics Training Squadron. 

He currently works with Patriot Outdoors, The Redeployed, Skallywag Tactical, and other companies to further serve and train those who need it most.
