Paladin Press (1970-2017) - The end of an era :(

In one hour and 6 minutes Eastern Standard Time at 12:00 PM, Paladin Press will shut down operations :( Paladin was self-described as "Publishers of the Professional Action Library". Subjects of their vast library ran the gamut from martial arts, self-defense, weaponcraft, survival, and anything "professional action".

Today, I will be doing  one of the things I am known for... archiving martial arts/self-defense-related information. I am an amateur historian/researcher into martial arts/self-defense and will repost some of Paladin's webpages on my blog to preserve this important aspect of MA/SD.

Paladin Press Is Closing

At the end of the year, Paladin Press will be going out of business. There will be no more books or videos sold after November 29, 2017. We are incredibly grateful to all of our amazing customers and authors for their continued loyalty and support over the decades. Please continue to check Paladin’s Facebook, Twitter, and website pages for more information about the closure and the deep discounts on our current inventory. But remember: supplies are limited. Buy these Paladin books and videos while you still can.

Starting in October 2017 sometime, there was a 50% sale, then a 55% off sale, then a 65% off sale and finally the 85% off sale in November 2017 sometime.

Hope you had a chance to take advantage of these sales.

Stickgrappler's Note: Posted 12/1 as of 11/30. I am guessing the Paladin's site will be shut down at the end of the year and I'm archiving select Paladin Press pages to my blog to preserve an essential part of martial arts from 1970-2017.

Select Paladin Press site archived pages:


(This section I will not add towards November's tally as well as the header picture and video I made above... I will only use hand-drawn pictures or animated GIFs I've created towards Nov's NaNoWriMo totals):

It looks like I made my goal of 50,000 words via text and pictures towards the National Novel Writing Month/NaNoWriMo. Although I had a secondary goal of blogging everyday which I was not able to accomplish, but with NaNoWriMo, the ultimate goal was to blog regularly.

This post: 9,426 (Doesn't include future archived Paladin Press pages added to the Index after today's post, to keep the archived Paladin Pages cleaner that were posted today, I am adding the word count of those posts to this post only)
November running tally: 92,646 words
Words in excess of NaNoWriMo's 50,000:  42,646
