One of the best things I can say about Small Circles of 5 Animals is its practicality. Sure Elder White Wolf does an exceptional job at preserving the heritage of the art and its founders, upholding primary traditions and roots. While all that’s great and honorable, the true practicality is what really caught me. Yea there’s certainly mat techniques, but beyond those there’s a real diversity of techniques that can be used in places where the last thing you want to do is go to the ground. Also, unlike MMA schools I’ve been to and other schools teaching tournament styles, Elder White Wolf seriously addresses how to face off multiple opponents in street situations, as well as one on one, armed and unarmed, injured or uninjured, force or grace, offense and defense, how to avoid conflict, how to deliver a warning, submission or in very worst case scenarios, kill in real combative situations.
In all my training I’ve found more well rounded practicality and reality here than anywhere else. Elder White Wolf helped me get ready for SEAL's training.
