Billy and Check bring a unique and wholistic approach to training. They spent decades serving this country in the US Army Special Forces and the US Government Intelligence Community. The combination of these two disciplines means an unparalleled and comprehensive knowledge base and skill set. Some of their specialties include: preventing and resolving hostage situations, medical response, personnel and facility security, investigations, movement over land, on and under sea, and through air, armed and unarmed combat, survival, evasion, resistance, and escape. As followers of Yeshua as Messiah, they use their capabilities to prepare G-d's people and set captives free."
