Guro Brown's P.M.A.T.S Curriculums

Sifu/ Guro/ Master Billy Brown

Our Founder and 

Senior Chief Of Instruction Development

GURO Billy Brown  has been involved in the Martial Arts for most of his life, starting with his father in 1984.


Having since trained in and researched many different styles and systems, he was teaching at the young age of 14 and was teaching professionally by age 16. 


In 1999 he founded Progressive Martial Arts Training Systems. He is also the founder of the world renown Counter Assault Tactics Program, which is dedicated to training Civilians, Women Only, Business Professionals and Law Enforcement officers in realistic and effective personal protection skills. 

Spending 20 years of his life working club doors, private security and body guard work, his real world experience is vast and this gives him a rare teaching element of reality that MOST martial arts instructors do not have.


This has led many law enforcement and military units to his door as well as presented him the opportunity to work many Private Security details for people like Brooks and Dunn and George Jones. 


His Woman's Counter Assault Tactics Program is known throughout the U.S. as being the most effective, yet easy to learn course available to date. And his Stand On Violence Against Women Is Legendary.


Seeing the weaknesses of the current self defense courses and schools for both civilians and tactical professionals, he sought to form another unique organization that was highly innovative and just ahead of the curve. So, in 2009, DefendUSA/ Adaptive Combatives was born!


He did not stop there! In 2011, after rehabbing himself from a severe injury where his doctors said he would never walk again, he formed an amazing and unique workout program which was initially designed to get himself back in shape! His amazing 9 month  transformation got the attention of the community and that was the birth of PRO-FIT!  PRO-FIT is revolutionizing the way people look at Personal Training.


Guro Brown is also on the board as "Director Of Combatives" of one of the biggest tactical training companies around. Known as "The Facility". There, he works with other world class experts in their fields to educate, teach and train everyone from high level Police and Military personal to everyday men and women.


And in 2014, after becoming known worldwide through his youtube video postings, and after receiving countless messages from people around the world, he was led into forming his newest company, PROGRESSIVE PRODUCTIONS. A one stop online shop so to speak, where anyone could receive the best, most innovative Martial Arts training available, all in one place and all online!


Always the true Multi - Art practitioner and known as the "Instructor of Many Variables" and equipped with such a fun, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and energy filled teaching style; Guro Billy Brown is always in a high demand for Seminars and Workshops all over the U.S and as of this year, the world.


Guro Brown's teaching experience is vast and he has trained everyone from everyday men, women and children in our communities to Law Enforcement and Special Ops Military men to Master and GrandMaster Ranking Martial Artist instructors.


He Holds Many Instructorships including the Rank of GURO under Sr. Guro Ron Goin of the P.U.M.A. System and the Rank of Level 6 Advanced Instructor Under World Renowned Combatives Instructor Hock HockHeim. He holds a 4th degree blackbelt and black collar Master Instructor ranking under Grand Master Brad Whitlow of Juk-Ahm training systems.


Furthermore, he has trained with and spent considerable time with some of the most noted Instructors and Masters in the world; GrandMaster Brad Whitlow, GrandMaster Scott McNeely, GrandMaster Hee Il Cho, GrandMaster Michael Depasquale Jr, Sr. Guro Ron Goin, the late Master Joe Lewis, Guro Rick Tucci, Guro Hock Hockheim, Coach Erik Paulson and the Legendary Guro Dan Inosanto just to name a few.


His goal and mission is changing lives and "Empowering Others", not only through the research and training of the Martial Arts, but also by belief in the Creator as he stresses to his students that they should not only perfect their Martial Arts skills, but that their character and conduct should constantly be perfected also.


"We must always strive for Never-Ending Improvement in every area of our lives and in everything that we set out to accomplish. Always keeping a critical eye on ourselves. Always giving thanks to GOD for each new day!"
