SRT’s proprietary Applied Defenses And Preventative Tactics are the result of Earl Portnoy’s 30 years’ study of martial arts and over 20 years as a consultant to police departments nationwide, He saw there was a need to develop a system of self-defense that could be taught at every level of experience. Whether an Army National Guard unit preparing for deployment into a combat theater or a homemaker looking for “street-level” self-defense, the A.D.A.P.T™ Street Survival System is the answer.

A.D.A.P.T.™ is the BEST of all Possible Worlds


Grand Master Portnoy realized early in his career that no one system can be force-fit to apply to all defense needs. He began his search for the “best of the best” from the martial arts world, the traditional law enforcement world and military training. What evolved was a system of “best practices” in the self- defense arena, with a focus of tailoring the right skills with the right situation. 

Who Needs A.D.A.P.T.™?


Anyone who might encounter  an unarmed confrontation with a criminal, combatant, customer, client, employee, patient, or other sudden threat. A.D.A.P.T™ will prepare the soldier, law officer, business executive,  hospital worker, homeowner, and unarmed civilian  to cope with the unexpected. The goal is not always to win, but to survive.
