Antifragile article by Kevin Reeves from On Point Tactical who does primarily survival, E and E training. His article talks about having a wide variety of skill sets and not preparing for just one situation. His remarks about becoming the master of a couple and a jack of all trades helps one move beyond resiliency into the realm of antifragility. Antifragile concept is thoroughly fleshed out in the article.
Max in his “You are not a light infantryman?” vlog criticizes the prepper who generally makes his preparations for one type of event. That specificity leaves a person quite vulnerable to a world who’s future is unpredictable. The “Whole Warrior” concept essentially eschews this type of specificity in preparation since Max states one can’t predict the future.
Though Reeves training emphasis is not SUT training he is espousing the same sentiment. Antifragile and Whole Warrior are coexisting concepts with differences in focus with the idea of being broadly and continually trained so as not to just survive but to thrive.July 4, 2018 at 12:04 pm #59864RobertParticipant
I was Kevin’s first student. His tracking classes are great. Good guy.

Three day course where you learn how to pick locks, break out of handcuffs, undo flex ties, put on disguises, etc. The last day youbare abducted and interrogated. You have to then escape and evade your captors who will try to track you down. You have some check points and caches you have to get to.
I think he does courses all over the country. So you are literally running around LA, Atlanta, Detroit, Seattle, Chicago, or whatever city that’s hosting this training running away from trackers who are trying to spot you. Sounds fun.July 7, 2018 at 11:13 pm #59965

Yes, I got out of the handcuffs and the trunk :)
Good class. Also did the 5 day tracking class, the “Beyond SERE” class and a fieldcraft class. Haven’t trained with him since 09.
