Melissa & Peyton  Celebrating 40 years of marriage!


I first read tbook by the 15th century "Sword Saint" of Japan when I began my study of krtate at age 9. I could barely grasp any of it's content at that age/ Some things need special experience to understand, 59 years later I had developed some of that experience and thus some understanding of this priceless work. Mushashi was what we call today a ​sytems analyst" centuries ahead of his time. 

Below are my Action Novels that have some 'meat and potatoes' themes at the bottom of the fast moving 'pot boiler' .

.“Love is blind and love can be foolish – Our heart doesn’t always love the right people at the right time. Sometimes we hurt the ones that love us the most and sometimes we love the ones that don’t deserve our love at all.”

​UPDATEGood people I have taught this course with my staff for 34 years now​j​, I am now 70 years old and need to get to my "bucket list"

I have NOW retired the training Program. 

It has been a great life for me and a life changing experience for those who took the training. The DVD's below I sincerely think are unique . There is just so much more to real world self defense than 'Techniques'. In fact, you do not need more than 1 to3 techniques in real fight. which last only a few seconds anyway! These DVD;s will show you that reality and what mindsrt you need to avoid the fight or end it quickly.

The science and art of Love and Romance by Peyton Quinn,  I have read most other books by Peyton and really like his work. I especially liked his book Freedom from fear.  Peyton is famous as a self-defence instructor and writer. I learned a lot about stuff I wished I had known years ago. I learned why things turned out like they did. I think the book allows people to forgive themselves and don't carry the burden of blame of past relationships. In that way it's healing. Te; a practical book for young and old, a guide to learn more about yourself.

These instructional DVD's are not just 'techniques' or 'martial arts' either. I gained a great deal from my martial arts study earning Black Belts in three (Judo,Wado Ryu Karate  & Aikido) and I was inducted into the BLACK BELT HALL OF FAME for creating this RMCAT program.

Yet it was my work as a bouncer on weekends (while being a High School Math teacher during the week) that clearly showed me that most fights can be avoided and most hostile people can be DE-Escalated once you knew how the human predator thinks and you will after experiencing this course. Further, if it did come to violence,  I saw that you did not really need a lot of 'martial arts techniques' to prevail and not be bloodied up or far worse. Under adrenal stress (and that is  the one thing you can count on in any real confrontation and/or fight) many martial arts people ( NOT ALL) discover that they have little access to their training and techniques. This is because they have never practiced them under adrenal stress. Further fine motor skills are the first thing to go   under the adrenal dump yet many MA techniques demand fine motor skills.Click to examine these DVD's further.

  "Possibly even better than the first one, Peyton's given us another fast-paced and thoroughly enjoyable story that I ended up reading in its entirety in one sitting.

. Now, for me every word jumps off that page with absolute clairity..This book of mine is the shortest I have ever wrote, just 79 pages, But you will see if you read it why. It is because this grim samurai saw through every illusionand not just in deadly martial combat.

. The ttruths he reveals, once grasped, even if only in part, are as useful and rlevant today in all aspects of life as they were in 15th Century Japan. At present this book is available only on Amazon in kindel format. But a paper back version is coming out soon. Email me to discover if the paaperback is out yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars"Outstanding Interpretation of Musashi's Book of Five Rings  review by Dan G. on October 3, 2011
Peyton Quinn did an excellent job on this book; I'm thoroughly impressed. I really appreciated how he explained Musashi's insights in a realistic "down to earth" way. At times Musashi's words may appear lofty or mystical, but Peyton's explanations expertly relate them to the realities of violent confrontations.

Please click on the videoabove to see this unique, armored assailant, scenario based training in action.You will also see legendary martial artist, Krav Maga instructors from Israel and  previously totally untrained people talk about their tremendous experience in self-discovery and self-actualization  that they experienced at this training. 

kill set far better and faster than 'repetition' drills.

WHILE e martial arts art are very much worth everyone’s study, they ares just that. That is "art' more than application. The Dojo or Kwan or Dojang are a place of courtesy, dicipline as they must and should be.

But of course a real fight is absolutely none of these things. Real fights are most often over in seconds they are brutal and animalistic.    
The sword saint of feudal Japan said, “The battel is decided before first swords are crossed”. Do not mistake this as ’ fatalismm’ or ‘mystical at all. He is simply pointing out that it is the mental preparation and past combat experience that will most often  decide the outcome.
I am sadly amazed when I hear someone say “If it don’t work in the UFC it ain’t gonna work in a fight either”. This statement is totally moronicc. Nothing almost that happens in pize ring is a real fight! Nor can we really take such an athletic contest, brutal as it can get, as a ‘model’ of an actual fight.
Hence if you are forced to fight physically and your mindset is that of a “contest” then like the grim swordsman said ‘the battle has already been decided”.
Most of all good people you must understand that in today’s world ‘The fight starts long before the first punch is thrown’. I can not accurately count how many people that I helped get back on their feett after being punched out and dropped who would say “He just sucker punched me for no reason ‘ As if the first shot that dropped him, and I made sure it was the only shot thrown too, just came out of the blue.

Yet I was moving through the crown to prevent it all but could not get there a second earlier and that’s when the other guy threw his sht. I could not even hear any words excnged between either of them due to the noise of the bar. But I learned to spot this type assaultive behavior often long before it got physical and frankly so can you, If they pay attention and are aware well with observation I think anyone could develop this ability it sure does not take ‘clairvoyance’ just paying real attention to the pre-incident cues.
