    Warriors Den Podcast Episode 106 - Sebastien Lavoie retired RCMP Sgt. Maj and Founder of Raven Strategic

    Expert: (Re: his upcoming book) “Is essentially the pursuit of excellence in a 360 Degree world, and I mean a 360 degree scan around your, you know your own life. So, I’m pursing this goal to go to special operation. I’m pursing this goal to be the best in business, I’m pursing this goal. Everything has a cost and everything has an equal and opposite reaction. So how can we mitigate the cost with the pursuit of excellence in certain fields” -Sebastien 

    Sebastien Lavoie is a retired Sgt Major in the RCMP and Founder of Raven Strategic. He was previously on Episode 81, and since then he has has quite the 2021 in a way most of us cannot even imagine. The highlight of his year was getting his BJJ Black Belt but after a minor surgery he ended up with Compartment Syndrome where even now there is a very real possibility that he may need to amputate his leg. He also experience sever Heartbreak which for him was worse pain than any thing else. However he has started a very serious path recovery which thanks to the generosity of Altitude performance includes the use of CVAC Pods which at this point seem to have significantly positive results. He is also working on a book which he hopes to release in the next year or two using his immense leadership experience and preference for direct and practical advise as a guide.

    Episode 105 - Maj. Nadav Raz of the IDF, PTSD, Buddhism and Counter Terrorism

    Episode 105 - Maj. Nadav Raz of the IDF, PTSD, Buddhism and Counter Terrorism

    EXCERPT: For me, the one thing that first let me deal with depression was understanding the basics of Buddhist thought…so the basic tenants of Buddhist is that the world is suffering. And that is awesome, its like if your baseline is the world is suffering that’s a good philosophy for me to understand because I’m suffering.

    Maj. Nadav Raz (IDF) has over 20+ years of Military and civilian training experience specializing in teaching Counter-Terrorism and intervention. Nadav started his military career like many Israelis in the Infantry advancing through the ranks and eventually, he was invited to help teach at the IDF counter-terrorism school and form a new division focused on counter-terror tactics for infantry units in civilian environments. After leaving the regular army service he began his reserve duty as an officer at the school for settlement protection and still spends several weeks/months a year teaching and training. During his time in the military, he was also exposed to an event where he was almost killed by an alleged ally with bullets just barely missing him after he had already spent several days under constant fire. Nadav traveled to Asia where he found Buddhism and other teachings that helped him deal with his depression and trauma. He now mostly teaches civilians how to arm and protect themselves and has developed a lecture called from Gaza to Buddha

    In This episode, we talk about Nadav’s Military experience, time in Asia, Trauma, Depression, PTSD, Our philosophies, experiences and lives, with a little Counterterrorism to offer some Ying to the yang.

    Warriors Den Podcast Episode 104 - Tony Blauer Self Defense and Martial Arts pioneer, creator of the S.P.E.A.R. System

    Warriors Den Podcast Episode 104 - Tony Blauer Self Defense and Martial Arts pioneer, creator of the S.P.E.A.R. System

    Excerpt: "It Occurred to me after decades of studying violence, fear and aggression. That if people don’t manage their fear, they don’t manage to fight. Its that simple." - Tony Blauer
    Coach Tony Blauer has been in the martial art, self-defense, defensive tactics, and combatives industry for over four decades. He founded Blauer Tactical Systems (BTS) in 1985 and it has grown into one of the world's leading consulting companies specializing in the research and development of performance psychology, personal safety, and close quarter tactics & scenario-based training for law enforcement, military, and professional self-defense instructors.


    His research on the neuroscience of fear and the startle-flinch led to the development of the SPEARSystem® a modern personal defense system based on physiology, physics, and psychology. It has been used by defensive tactics and combative trainers all over the world for over 30 years.
    He developed the world's first impact-reduction scenario-based training equipment, called High Gear which revolutionized force-on-force training for police, SWAT, and military organizations.
    • After decades of interviewing victims of violent encounters and studying violence, he created theKNOW FEAR® program which focuses on managing fear through self-awareness, resiliency, and a 'movement' mindset. This program has also been integrated by psychologists helping Vets to deal with PTSD.

    Mr. Blauer's programs have influenced over three decades of trainers and coaches as well as most contemporary reality-based martial artists. He resides in California with his wife, kids, and dogs but still travels extensively working with individuals, corporations, and government organizations around the world providing solutions for training, performance assessment, and credentialing. His company is dedicated to enhancing the mental and physical safety of everyone they help train.

    Warriors Den Intro Video 2022

    Warriors Den Podcast now in video (Where available) 

    Thanks for tuning in, this is the Warriors Den Podcast and I am your Host Jonathan Fader, Lead Instructor at Urban Tactics Krav Maga where I have dedicated my life to all things self-defense.

    In this podcast, I talk to guests in and open in an uncensored format about their fights, their philosophies and their lives.

    No topic is taboo, and the conversation may start in one place and end in another. You will also see Blog post episodes where I expand on written posts made on the UTKM blog www.utkmblog.com. Where posts are written by me, my students, and other contributors. You can also check out older Audio only episodes there whenever you like. Consider this Quote from Ancient Greek Historian Thucydides:

    “The Society that separates scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools”

    I believe one cannot separate the warrior from the politics and the world around them and to be a truly well-rounded warrior you must know all things arts and science and not just focus on the pure combative.

    Thanks again for listening and don’t forget to Like, Subscribe, Follow and leave a positive view where ever you may be listening or watching.

    I hope you too can find your path so that you can walk in peace.

    Enjoy the show!

    Episode 102 - Joel Garcia a Martial Artist and aspiring Actor originally from Venezuela

    Episode 102 - Joel Garcia a Martial Artist and aspiring Actor originally from Venezuela

    Excerpt: (On immigrating alone, life, and company of others and yourself): “You truly have to create your own family. You get used to coming and going, you have to really find a way to not depend on people coming and going. It allows me to be completely ok with being alone, we're social creatures, we need people. But I think that every one should be able to understand and know what it's like to be alone. If we don’t appreciate our own company how the f…, how are you going to enjoy fully someone else’s company? Because other wise it becomes co-dependent. It's one thing when I want to be with you because I like your company, but it's another one because I’m so scared of not having someone to talk to. Its different approaches and I feel like a lot of us are still in that kind of mindset."

    Joel Garcia is a Martial Artist and Aspiring Actor originally from Venezuela. He left the now-failed state of Venezuela when he was a young adult through sports scholarships particularly Volleyball. Sport became Joel's path towards freedom and he eventually found Martial Arts starting with MMA. He has expanded his knowledge in Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Overall Self Defense. Through Sport, Joel has grown as a person exploring the physical and the spiritual. In this episode, we cover so many topics from Martial Arts, The importance of Freedom, Authoritarianism, His experience in Venezuela, Spirituality and being a better human, what's going on in the world and so much more.
