I recently went up to Vermont and met White Wolf in person, for the first time, for a highly specialized Combat Class. Since I was seven I have been training in many different martial arts as well as elite military combat systems and have therefore, over the years, acquired a good sense of what is practical and what is not, as well as fine tuned my discernment for bullshit. In short: White Wolf is the real deal! As hard as it may be to believe in a world full of scam artists, but he truly is who he says he is!
After an initial talk about what it was that I came looking for, White Wolf then showed and drilled me in the most brutal, and brutally efficient moves one could ever hope to never have to use! As gentle and genuine as he is as a person and instructor, he's unstoppable and devastating as a fighter and I got to catch a glimpse of that during my class. He showed me things that even I had never seen before and that I know, not even most of the world's elite military units are taught (because I have been trained by some of the best special forces instructors), this was stuff straight out of the blackest of black ops type kill drills, not for the faint of heart lemme tell ya!
The most fascinating aspect of it all however was his internal energy work. Many, many martial artists and fighters talk about Chi and their usage of it as much as the day is long, but frankly most do just that and only that: they talk! White Wolf on the other hand showed me in actuality what it is and how it feels and I can testify that he has it! Without going into too much detail, there was one time where he was showing me a take down: while holding my right arm he applied this force through his palm and the pressure and pain was intense like fire, I went down immediately. He actually burned some of my skin off and I got the scar the prove it!
When I then tried the same on him, nothing happened, and I am a strong dude, but because I was using muscular tension I was fighting myself and all my strength was of no use to me whatsoever, a truly humbling experience.
To sum it up: Studying under (Kikeyjumhet) Elder White Wolf was a bit surreal at times because it isn't every day that one has access to that type of warrior training! Thanks to his trust in me, my eyes were opened to a whole new level of combat applications and I am anxiously awaiting my next class with him!!
I wanted to further add that I did not ask him for training me in traditional Small Circles Of Five Animals Jujitsu but to go straight to the most fierce, black zone combat scenarios. I know that he can adjust his class to any student's personal needs and so I suggest anyone thinking about taking a Jujitsu/combat class from him to not be scared or shy and simply tell him exactly what it is that you want/need. Either way I can guarantee you, you will not be disappointed!

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.

I’ve been around the block many times through many years in the martial arts communities. In all my travels and studies I’ve never found anyone as young as Elder White Wolf with the skills he possesses and executes. To my knowledge it takes practitioners decades and decades, maybe 50 years to be able to generate and practically use intense amounts of internal qi. I’ve only met three old men who had attained such levels before meeting Elder White Wolf. I couldn’t believe the skill he had for being in his late 30’s, and today he is years older.
There are some amazingly talented martial artists in the world, no doubt, and I’ve met many. Nevertheless, I still have not encountered but less than a handful who come close to Elder White Wolf’s abilities. Sure many are great on the mat or in the gym, but they haven’t figured it out in the rest of their life. Elder White Wolf embodies the true spirit of his practices in all of his life, not just on the mat, and to me that’s the sign of a true “Elder”, “Master”. He’s got no ego, nothing to prove, no judgment, yet his resolve is like iron and fire. I’m truly honored and humbled to have met him.
