From 1998 - 2010, Richard was heavily involved in the Mixed Martial Arts (called No Holds Barred in those days) and Submission Grappling communities as a student, competitor, and coach. Trained by Gary Brown (founder of Eagle Combat Systems and Army combat veteran of Vietnam) and George Allen (retired professional fighter and referee, Army veteran), Richard dedicated much of his life to learning both the sport aspects of Mixed Martial Arts as well as the in-depth intricacies of the Eagle Combat System.

After almost a decade, Richard achieved the rank of Shodan (First Degree Black Belt) under Gary Brown, becoming one of a handful of students to achieve this rank. During this time, Richard worked with several Law Enforcement Officers and Agencies throughout the central Georgia area through seminars as well as continued instructional services. Serving as both a consultant and instructor, Richard worked with Officers and Agencies in the following areas:

  • Defensive Tactics
  • Situational Awareness
  • Officer Safety
  • Takedowns
  • Positional Control
  • Handcuffing Techniques
  • Small Arms Weapons Retention
