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.

Phone Call Alert! 

(Please read, thanks.)

Due to the COVID-19 onslaught, we currently cannot take incoming phone calls.  

 

A notification about phone calls:  due to the COVID-19 plague, we've significantly increased our incoming inquiries--nearly double our usual volume--and the number of incoming inquiries by phone has been literally overwhelming.  Although most writers will say that their call "will only take 15 minutes," the truth is, that after 10 years of doing this, most author inquiry calls take an hour.  45 minutes at best. I'm currently receiving 7-10 calls/day, and due to that, I've had to stop accepting incoming phone calls, which my voicemail will tell you. You can leave a message--I can't call you back without one--and if a call is needed, I will of course call you.  But we have very complete and extensive email replies, handouts and our website is very informative. Almost all the questions that I receive during a call are actually already answered on our site, or are, in fact, publishing questions, not questions about our services, what we do, what we offer, or the like.  I already handle between 90-130 emails/day, as it is. I can't handle that many emails and take 7-10 hours of calls each day. I can't. So, in order to be able to answer this huge email volume, to help the greatest number of people, with my time, I've had to stop accepting calls.  I'm sorry, but that's just how it is. I'm in the process of setting up a call-appointment function, for free 15-minute calls to answer questions from new prospective customers and longer paid sessions for folks who generally want consulting on "publishing," generally (and for prospective kids' book publishers, as a special category of paid consulting).  But that functionality isn't yet set up. I hope to get that working the 3rd week of July, sometime.  

Thank you for your understanding.
