Developed by Leading Experts
The ART course was developed by Paul W. Abel of SHOOT-N-IRON and C.W. Montgomery, founder of Paladin Personal Protection. Portions of the ART course are derived from the hand-to-hand training used by the U.S. Navy SEALs. You do not need to be an athlete to learn these unarmed defensive hand-to-hand techniques. Our students range in age from 18 to 80, and courses are designed to accommodate the physically impaired, as well as those in good physical condition.

More citizens are injured or die from assaults each year in the United States than from AIDS. To survive in this society, you either have to hire a bodyguard or learn how to defend yourself. There are never any guarantees when you are confronted with a life-threatening situation. However, the knowledge, skills, and techniques gained from this training will enhance your chances of survival greatly. Our techniques work virtually every time.
