Build me for Special Forces
« on: February 15, 2018, 12:22:47 »
My names ****. Ive been in the CAF for a year now. I never had a purpose until joining the military. I have just completed my first year. I have never done anything great to my views and this is what I want to do. I want to deploy actually do something great. This is where I lack. I need training. Ive noticed, and have looked near and far of what I could do better. I need to change this. I would like to become a better soldier. But I need help. I need someone to train me to become able to do special forces. I have 1 year to until I get my corporals. I am ready to change everything and give everything to become better. If there is a former Special Forces or current member out there, willing to train me. I am ready to be broken mentally and physically to be built back up to the best I can be. There is no restrictions to what can be done. I just need some help. Feel free to email me. This is something I want more then.

Welcome to Army.ca

Firstly, I recommend changing your username to something less identifiable. I have removed your name and rank for protection. There is no guarantee of anonymity here, but advertising one's identity may not be a good idea.

Secondly, take some time to explore this Sight and learn from the information already contained in existing threads, in particular, in your case, the CANSOFCOM sub-forum at https://army.ca/forums/index.php/board,73.0.html. Once you've absorbed whatever's in there, feel free to ask any questions for which you have not found answers. In the meantime, you'll probably find answers to questions that have not even occurred to you yet.

I will move this post to that sub-forum soon.

Look at the requirements to apply for the SOF unit you want to be in.


There are training guides for CSOR, JTF2, and CJIRU available for free online. Mountain Tactical has a program you can purchase.  As well, look into Wes kennedy; former CSOR Operator, for a cost he’ll coach you online and get you a program.

Remember that one of the 'special' things about SF is their ability to do even the basics very well, in all conditions. It's not just fitness. Seek out opportunities, during your usual training programs, to become a better all round soldier too.

I know this is an old post but if anyone was like me and decided to take a look into the Wes Kennedy program just be advised it is $600 a month. Sadly I had to go through the whole process of apply for it and going through the interview to find that out. No doubt it will get you where you need to go but just be aware of the financial requirement.

I read something somewhere that Wes Kennedy isn't a name that is fondly used around the SOF community.

Mainly due to luring people in for his workout plan, charging an arm and a leg, and it turns out to be something you could get from a trainer at a fraction of the price.

There may be other reasons too, but I cannot recall.
