"We should remember that one man is much the same as another, and that he is best who is trained in the severest school."
The Urban Warfare Center (2002-2012)
After the 9/11 attacks David founded the Urban Warfare Center and the Combat Stress Program. Thousands of soldiers, federal agents and police were trained to win the fight in through his branded stress inoculation training. According to senior military and law enforcement leadership these programs saved lives and reduced casualty rates. Lives were saved in this facility through force-on-force or human vs human training with an emphasis on stress inoculation and management. As stress responses are forced, identified and tools are given to understand and overcome them, warriors get into the fight quicker, with a systemic response. This principle based approach increases combat survivability, stimulates cohesion and inspires confidence. These improved responses result in greater dominance in a fight.
