Show # 269- Coffee with Rich | Matt Numrich Certified Executive Instructor Progressive Fighting Systems
 
On today's Coffee with Rich, we will be joined by Matt Numrich.
Matthew Numrich is a natural leader and teacher. He graduated from Concordia University Chicago with a Bachelor’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Industrial and Organizational Psychology. In the beginning, he began studying martial arts and training under Sifu Paul Vunak (under Guru Dan Inosanto) in Bruce Lees’s art of Jeet Kune Do. He founded his own studio in the Chicago suburbs shortly after being certified as one of only a handful of Full Instructors of JKD and the Filipino Martial Arts.
He also holds a Certified Executive Instructor position under Progressive Fighting Systems, which is the “crème de la crème” in functional Jeet Kune Do. Mr. Numrich has also had the pleasure of training with some of the other elite JKD instructors such as Sifu Larry Hartsell (original student of Bruce Lee) and Thomas Cruse (past instructor of the Navy Seals).
Mr. Numrich has written a manuscript on Jeet Kune Do (JKD), in addition to several articles in US and international martial arts magazines. In 2001, he completed the first JKD on DVD instructional series, which is now distributed around the world. Mr. Numrich was used as a public media resource after the attacks of 9/11, in addition to running several out-of-state seminars. In late 2003, he was invited to teach instructors of the Federal Air Marshal’s Chicago O’Hare office .
He also completed the Jeet Kune Do Self Defense Matrix, which is the perfect “at home” training companion and a great supplementary program for students at all levels. National publications and experts alike have hailed this program as “unique and groundbreaking” as it not only focuses on the content of JKD (what is taught), but the method (how it is taught), resulting in an incredible training tool. For more information on this, please go to: www.FearlessStreetFighter.com
Within the last several years, Mr. Numrich completed many new self-defense programs, which focus on “average and untrained civilians” – as he saw this is where the need truly exists.
Since then Mr. Numrich has concentrated on the Israeli art of Krav Maga and is currently a Level 5 Certified Krav Maga Instructor. He believes that Krav Maga Training is the most effective and efficient way to meet the most amount of civilian need in the area of self-defense.
Mr. Numrich still teaches at his new academy in Phoenix, AZ, when most owners hand the instruction over to the “best student” in the class. His passion is using martial arts to increase the quality of his student's lives. Whether he is teaching character values to children, intense street fighting drills to men, or confidence-building self-defense techniques to women – Mr. Numrich is living his mission.
His school has a pool of students that consists of police officers, security guards, military, other martial arts instructors, men, women, and children of all ages. His close-knit group of students creates an atmosphere of faster, more effective learning for all. The school has specialty instructors for different groups of students, including law enforcement organizations, security companies, young adults, children with learning disabilities (ADD/ADHD), and family members seeking proactive home/environment safety.
In addition to teaching weekly at his PhxKravFit Krav Maga school, Mr. Numrich has helped create, and now trains people all over the world in escape and evasion techniques, as the Head Trainer of the Spy Black Belt program (for Instructors) and Spy Defense and Survival (for civilians, law enforcement and military).
Matt currently lives in Phoenix with his wife Stephanie who heads up the Krav Maga Self Defense Training and Classes for Youth and their two sons and dogs.

On today's Coffee with Rich, we will be joined by Zack Wilson.
For a very informal introduction of Zack Wilson, he is:
1) Has an addictive personality that makes him extremely competitive with literally everything he does.
2) Has only been around since breakfast but is highly opinionated due to him being a millennial.
On an official capacity:
Zack is currently a member of the Department of Energy (DOE) working as a security police officer on a SRT (Special Response Team) after leaving a DOE firearms instructor position for Project Enhancement Corporation. In addition to this he’s back on the Jiu Jitsu mats after a little hiatus and is currently ranked through the Gracie Barra system training with Samuel Braga at Gracie Barra Knoxville. When he has the time, he occasionally shows up to shoot in IDPA, USPSA, and PRS matches. In, 2015 he received a Bachelor’s in Emergency Services Management and is now toying with the idea of getting a master’s degree.
Prior to getting hired on with DOE, Zack spent 14 years as a police officer for the Knoxville Police Department. All his years on the department were in the Patrol Division, and along the way he became a firearms instructor and a field training officer (FTO). Half of his time at the department was spent on their Special Operations Squad (i.e., SWAT) as a law enforcement sniper, and he was able to attend several law enforcement courses in tactics, deadly force, and law enforcement sniping.
Concurrently to his time at KPD, Zack was also in the Marine Corps with 3/24 Lima Company. He started out as a regular rifleman in the infantry but was selected to be in the Scout Sniper platoon after a battalion INDOC (indoctrination) in 2009 prior to a deployment to Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF). He lived the life of a P.I.G. (professionally instructed gunmen) during his deployment, and upon return to the states in 2010 he graduated from the Scout Sniper Basic Course class 1-10 at Quantico, VA. His time in the Marine Corps ended in 2012 and during his tenure was able to attend several military schools and courses.
From 2012 to the present, he is also a sniper cadre member of the ILEA (Indiana Law Enforcement Academy) where they instruct and perform a federally accredited basic and advanced law enforcement sniper course every year and speaking of Indiana, he also joined the Indiana National Guard in 2019 and is the Scout/Sniper Section Leader for the 1-151st HHC.

Show # 264 - Coffee with Rich | Round Two with Manhar Parshotam Founder and Director of Dragon Protection Services
On today's Coffee with Rich, we will be joined by Manhar Parshotam for round two of the initial discussion about the events in the near South African coup.  Manhar Parshotam is the founder, a shareholder and director of Dragon Protection Services, which was established in 1996.
Manhar grew up in Durban and attended Burnwood Secondary School in Sydenham. After he completed his schooling, he spent two years studying for a degree in engineering until he switched to a BCom degree.
During his university years, he was a voluntary policeman and subsequently served as a police reservist for 15 years. Manhar’s explains that his career in the security field ‘happened by accident’.
In the 1990s he worked parttime in security during the South African Amnesty process, which boosted his interest in the field. Whilst working in security during a huge petrol strike, a chance encounter changed his life’s direction. A medical doctor approached and requested him to perform a security assessment of one of the doctor’s buildings. Following this assessment, he was offered the security contract for the building.
This was a huge learning curve,” explains Manhar. In his final year of BCom, Manhar had to make a choice to either complete his studies or go full time into the security business. “This decision was hard as there were more cons than pros and was based on the opportunity to train ex-soldiers in security so that they could be reintegrated back into society and obtain jobs.” After much deliberation Manhar left the university and the business grew from there.
Some of the highlights of his career included seeing Fidel Castro and Muammar Gaddafi in person. A standout moment was watching Nelson Mandela arrive at the Durban ICC. “I got to see an icon – there was an aura about him which gave me goosebumps,” said Manhar. During 2001 Manhar was provided the opportunity by the South African Government to attend internationally recognized protection training courses in the United Kingdom and the United States.
In his down time, Manhar enjoys competitive shooting as well as spending time with his family. “They help you relax, keep you calm and put a smile on my face.”
He concluded, “Be happy, do what you love. If you love what you are doing, then every day is a holiday.”

Show # 260 - Coffee with Rich | Former Special Mission Unit Officer and Commander Pete Blaber
Pete Blaber commanded at every level of one of the most elite counter-terrorist organizations in the world during most of recent history’s most significant military and political events (Panama, Colombia, Somalia, Bosnia, Afghanistan, and Iraq).In 2006 he retired from the military and transitioned from leading elite combat teams around the globe, to leading elite corporate teams for one of the world's largest and most innovative Biotechnology Companies.
“After 21 years of using the term ‘common sense’ to describe the way I lived and led in the military, this was the first time I actually paused to ponder what ‘common sense’ actually is and why people seem to recognize, respond to, and appreciate ‘common sense leadership’ whenever they experience it. I didn’t have to look far to find the answer. The answer is both all around and inside us. It’s not political, or religious, or philosophic. It’s biologic. Biology reveals that life always finds a way. It’s the "Common Sense Way.” In 2015 I left my job as a Biotechnology executive to write this book.
“In 2018, while still working on this book, I decided it was time to pressure test the “Common Sense Way” in the living laboratory of real-world experience, so I started an international company that adds armor protection to any type of vehicle (e.g. cars, trucks, vans, buses, etc.). The idea behind Adding Armor is to create a “Mobile Safe-Room” that protects the vehicle’s passengers from would-be attackers (criminals, terrorists, active shooters, and anarchists) while also providing “peace of mind” that cannot be attained in an unarmored vehicle. In today’s world, adding armor to protect your family, friends, and colleagues is common sense. It’s the ‘Common Sense Way’”.
Pete was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois. He has an MBA and an MS in National Security and Strategic Affairs.
