Paladin Training

Paladin Training, Inc. was formed in 2000 to provide crime prevention and homeland security training to private citizens and personnel in public law enforcement and private security. In 2009 Paladin incorporated in the state of South Carolina as a non-profit corporation. Paladin Training is a public charity under section 501 (c)(3) of the IRS code. Donations are tax deductible.


Why Non-Profit?

Approximately half of the law enforcement agencies in South Carolina have ten or fewer full-time officers. Frequently, these smaller agencies have no full-time training staff and little, if any, budget set aside for firearm training. This situation creates a need for outside talent and money, a need made more critical by two current and competing trends: Increasingly stringent court-imposed training requirements and drastic budgets cuts in the public sector. Paladin Training plans to help meet this need by providing grant and donor funded training services and materiel to requesting agencies.

If you think Paladin Training can be of service to your agency, or if you would like to make a tax deductible donation to help support us in this critical mission, contact us using the information below.

Our Training Philosophy

Our philosophy of training, based primarily on experience gained in the military, law-enforcement and nuclear security, is to train the fundamentals to the point their execution becomes automatic and reliable under stress. The environment we're preparing you for is fluid, dynamic, and unforgiving.

“In war, everything is simple, but even the simple things are difficult.” Carl Von Clausewitz

We believe the best way to help you WIN is to:
  1. Concentrate on the basics in our curriculum - We don't teach high-speed low-drag super-Ninja techniques. The more complicated a technique is, the more practice time must be regularly devoted to it. Who has time for that? For most of us they're unnecessary and time spent on them is counter-productive.
    “The winner in combat is determined by who best executes the fundamentals.” Anonymous

  2. Teach in principles and fundamentals (the 'why' behind the 'what') - No mysteries. You must understand not only what you're doing, but why you're doing it. Things rarely work the way they should, even in the best of circumstances. Expect the unexpected and be able to push past it.
    “Adapt, improvise, overcome.” GySgt Highway (Clint Eastwood) in 'Heartbreak Ridge'

  3. Take a holistic approach to training - The techniques and tactics we teach don't exist in separate vacuums. The laws of physics, our legal system, and moral constraints tie all inextricably together.

  4. Help you establish good practice habits - You will not master a skill at anyone's school. We provide a solid foundation, but whether or not you become competent ultimately depends on you and you alone. Remember: Practice makes permanent. Perfect practice makes perfect, so you can achieve mastery if and when you so desire.
