Peyton Quinn

Peyton Quinn is a member of the Black Belt Hall of Fame and is internationally recognized as an innovator in applied self-defense training methodologies. But it was his work as a "bouncer" and "cooler" in the mid-seventies in New Mexico that gave him a unique perspective on the difference between civilian "martial arts" versus actual "combat." Later in life, he formed a software company that succeeded in getting the first software development contracts from IBM from an outside source. After selling his share of the firm just sixteen months after he started it, he purchased acreage in Colorado's Rocky Mountains and formed RMCAT (Rocky Mountain Combat Applications Training.) Black Belt Magazine wrote about RMCAT: "Peyton has succeeded in creating the best short-term self-defense program existent." 3/02 Peyton's book 'Real Fighting' Adrenal Stress Conditioning Through Scenario-Based Training explained that it was how one dealt with the ?adrenal stress reaction' that was often much more decisive than a knowledge of ?martial techniques' in actual combat. His book is considered one of the five most influential books ever written on the mindset of combat and self-defense. Two of the other books are Bruce Lee's The Tao of Jeet Kune Do, and of course, Musashi's Book of Five Rings. Peyton brings an insightful understanding and a practical perspective to Musashi's classic. This is because the real truths about people, strategy and the way to victory have never changed. He argues convincingly that the sixteenth century Samurai ,Musashi, was so advanced in his logic and observation that he refers to him as a 'systems level thinker' centuries ahead of his time.

Yup, it's Christmas 2024!

See you again on January 3rd! Admin is closed until then!

Seriously--we "mostly" close from December 24th-ish until the middle of the week, first week of January. Production is still steaming along, but admin takes a desperately-needed break for ~10 days. We'll answer any emails that seem in dire straights, but generally speaking, we're mostly gone for that period of time.  See ya when we return!--Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
