Romero "Jacare" was at a symposium for the US special military with representatives from the Rangers, Marines and Air Force. The 2 day event was held at Fort Benning, Ga. During the event there series of high level discussions about the program including demonstrations, effectiveness evaluations etc. The idea was to fine tune the hand to hand combat program for the armed forces. There was even a special dinner reception at Fort Benning's commander General Ferriter's home.

"Jacare" was very happy with the developments: "I could atest that the program has been perfected over the years and is very effetive. I am confident that this and the self-defense program is the best program for all military forces in the World. The system is based on the effectiveness of Jiu-Jitsu. The manual has several JJ positions, many of which I personally taught them and of course many others help further develop".

Present at the event were Rorion Gracie with his son Rener, Matt Larsen (Romero's Black Belt and the main organizer and force behind the program), Greg Nelson, Greg Thompson along with a host of military brass!
