Michael Donvito 5th Degree BJJ Black Belt and Expert Trainer for US Special Forces www.skallywagtactical.com and www.eliteyou.com
I sat down with Michael and we had a chat about his amazing 30+ year journey in martial arts, his 10 black belts, continuing his father’s work in training the US Military and US Special Forces and being part of www.skallywagtactical.com and www.eliteyou.com alongside Sgt Major Jack Nevils.
Thank you to Ashleigh Gass of https://movegst.com/ in Florida for introducing us and setting up the show.
A truly humble and knowledgeable man he is so understated that you just know he embodies the sign hung on my Squadron Sergeant Major’s door- “Be Friendly, Be Polite, But Have A Plan To Kill Everyone You Meet.”
Michael has 24+ years of experience training the Special Operations Community in Close Combat and related tactical skill sets. He is responsible for training thousands of military personnel and has been contracted by units throughout all four branches of service within the U.S. Military.
Michael has spent the last six years working with multiple defense contracting companies as a Close Combat and Force Protection SME; fulfilling the roles of Primary and Assisting Instructor for LE, DoD, AFSOC, ARSOF, and Celebrity clients.
He currently splits his time working on the Elite You and as a SME/Senior Instructor for Skallywag Tactical, and the Redeployed. Michael is a founding member of the Elite You, a virtual library dedicated to the idea that knowledge should be shared with those willing to seek it, and wisdom gained over a lifetime should be preserved for future generations.
“When an elder dies, a library burns to the ground.”
For anyone that wants to learn how to apply their combat sports, martial arts etc into a real world, save your own life skillset this is a must watch.
