Assessing a Threat Like a Navy SEAL - The Cooper Color System

Mark Divine | 8:05


The sheep dog training essentially to, to use something we, um, use in the seals called the Cooper Color System. Uh, the color of white, which is basically ignorance about what's going on around you. And most sheep are in this white, if not all sheep are in white, in that they're just mining their own business.

They really are unaware of what's going on. And then when a crisis happens, they're caught short and they're stuck and they're reliant upon, um, you know, a first responder or someone to help them out, another sheep dog to help them out. So we don't want to be in. When we begin to train ourselves, we take responsibility to step up into our sheep dog, um, archetype, our sheep dog energy put on the sheep dog clothing.

Then it's incumbent upon us to begin training. And that training, like I'm talking about self defense training, I mean real self defense training where you, you know, you're learning the skills of, you know, Street fighting hand to hand comment. The ability to take care of situation when a violent offender comes after you or your family.

That's what the type I'm talking about. Not necessarily, you know, TaeKwonDo or something that's gonna be. , you know, long term wax on, wax off training. That's important too, for different reasons. But the sheep dog has to take responsibility for the ability to move their body in a way that can take care of, uh, an attacker that takes some training.

Okay. And there's training that's accessible to everybody watching this video and is important and we're gonna be launching. Our own two day self-defense training next year using these principles. So I encourage you to watch for that. It's gonna be an important aspect of our sheep dog training here. So ultimately, we're talking about to move from white to the color yellow.

It's about awareness. It's about developing awareness and to be aware, you have to be confident and to know how to, to take care of yourself when things go south. So yellow is where the sheep dog lives yellow. The color yellow represents where you've trained yourself to constantly be scanning, but in a way that doesn't make you kind of a weirdo or an outcast.
