It is safe to say that I have wandered a bit. I served in the military, flew some jets, jumped out of most, climbed mountains (I jumped off of them too), taught fitness, owned a gym, and have spent the last few years speaking to organizations and leaders. It has been a journey, and in all honesty, I have no idea where it is going. I seek the things that make me uncomfortable. I move towards things that scare me. I think you should too

Episode 175 - Mickey Schuch

Podcast cover
Read more

Mickey Schuch is the owner and an instructor at Carry Trainer, an organization designed to provide a holistic approach to self-defense and firearms training. Mickey is a firearm instructor for Pistol, Rifle, Shotguns, Personal Protection Inside the Home and Personal Protection Outside the Home, a Range Safety Officer, and a member of the Illinois Tactical Officers Association.

Carry Trainer provides real solutions for real problems. It is incumbent upon individuals, businesses, and organizations to protect and defend innocent life. Carry Training provides training for individuals who are looking to make themselves the best that they can be. There is much more to self-defense than obtaining a permit to carry a gun. Training in any martial skill is more than attending a class, it is a lifestyle choice and the decision to exercise the right of arming oneself for the defense of themselves and family should not be taken lightly. Bullets cannot be called back once loosed from the gun. Safety is not an inherent trait; it is learned through proper training and repetition.

Podcast cover

Jon Boone is a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and a recent transplant to the Flathead Valley of Montana. Originally from Canada, he emigrated to the United States, found BJJ and dove in headfirst, eventually opening his own academy. Like many affected by the pandemic, he is re-inventing himself with his love for French cuisine with his company Salt and Butter.

Travis Davison is the vice president of Straight Blast Gym International, the owner of multiple SBG facilities, and a 20 + year BJJ practitioner as well as my coach.

For those that think that these episodes are only about Jiu-Jitsu, you could not be more mistaken. Often times we talk more about life than anything that happens on the mat.

Podcast cover

As an Operative who served as a Country Chief for a Special Unit within the CIA, Nic witnessed not only the epidemic of child trafficking within illicit markets but also the unrealized opportunity to apply his understanding and training to influence this global crisis. When Nic began to work with experts to better understand the problem in the United States he found it impossible to turn a blind eye. As a result, DeliverFund was officially established as a 501c3 in October 2014 as a counter-human trafficking organization, focused on ending sex slavery in the United States.

Nic spent 11 years in US Special Operations as an Air Force Pararescueman prior to being recruited to the Central Intelligence Agency. Due to his highly specialized training and experience in both special and intelligence operations, Nic has a firm understanding of these illicit, illegal markets and has the highest levels of training to effectively combat them.
