Kelly McCann

Black Belt author Kelly McCann is a former U.S. Marine special-missions officer responsible for counterterrorism and counter-narcotics. He now serves as the president of Crucible, an elite empty-hand and weapons-training facility that provides security support services and trains military, government and law-enforcement operators to do whatever it takes to survive. He has taught combatives and other special-ops skills for more than 25 years to a list of clients that includes the U.S. Department of Defense, as well as other U.S. government agencies and special-mission units. He and his team have operated and provided training in more than 30 of the most volatile countries, from Afghanistan and Iraq to Bosnia and Haiti.

The duties and services Kelly McCann has rendered over the years reveal his specialties: the development and implementation of numerous concealed-weapons courses, combative-skills curricula and street-crime avoidance programs. Kelly McCann also has served as a subject-matter expert in close-quarters combat, high-risk protective services, high-risk-environment force protection tactics, and terrorist techniques and procedures. Kelly McCann has served as a military and security analyst for Fox News, CNN and MSNBC.

Kelly McCann collaborated with Black Belt on Combatives for Street Survival: Hard-Core Countermeasures for High-Risk Situations. His book teaches you how to prevail in any street conflict with devastatingly effective principles and brutal techniques.
