According to his biography on the Discovery Channel's site,[2] "he participated in numerous tactical operations with SEAL Team ONE and TWO.

He was a certified instructor in the Naval Special Warfare Combat Fighting Instructor Course, as well as a Naval Special Warfare Scout/Sniper. He is a qualified expert in all US navy weapons. He founded the Bukido Institute, as well as the Bukido Training System, which "teaches a performance philosophy that uses unarmed combat as a pathway for exploring the dynamics of doubt, hesitation, second-guessing, stress, pain, fatigue and fear." Machowicz also served as a personal protection specialist for many high profile individuals within the political arena, business world and entertainment industry.
