Site Map
Blame this on the engineer in me,  but with so many pages on our web site,
it seemed prudent to place you in this, our  Site Map.  This, I believe, allows
you to select topics of interest without having to drill down to them.

All downloadable copies that you may find on the Internet are illegal.  They are put out there by thieves who copyright their own web sites but refuse to respect anyone else's copy rights.  No one, repeat, no one other than the author and Paladin Press owns these copy rights.
These Books and Videos took years to produce - years of training to understand the arts, and years of work just to share these sometimes "secret" insights with you and others who will benefit from learning them.
These original videos were produced by the absolute finest publisher, Paladin Press, whose quality is consistently excellent.  Moreover, if you compare the content to cost ratio of these with other Paladin videos (i.e. how many minutes of quality instruction are provided per dollar spent) you quickly see that you are getting an exceptional return on your investment.
Purchasing copyrighted videos legally actually supports the hard-working team who labor to put them together and it ensures that other top-quality videos will follow.  Again, please do not download these videos from the Internet.
