"As a member of one of the worlds most elite S.W.A.T. teams, I have had the great opportunity to have some of the best training and instructors in the world.  Jon Burke of Next Level Combatives is hands down the best hand-to-hand combat training around.  Jon's teaching style and expertise in firearms manipulation makes his course easy to apply to real life."

“I was once told that great instructors have a body of knowledge that surpasses their peers.  Jon Burke has that body of knowledge, and in the combatives world he has 'been there done that'.  Combine that with a relentless drive, and the ability to distill the fluff from the stuff and you get an instructor and program that is second to none.”​
