Suarez International was started in a spare bedroom in our house behind the lines in California way back in 1999. Having accomplished everything I had wished in my police career, I began a training company. It was my wife and I...period. I taught myself "html" computer language and began our own website. We needed a symbol. Even back then, while many of the current gun gurus were still in middle school, I knew the degradation of reading skills would give rise to a "symbols only" society. And being an ostensibly "international" company, I needed something that would transcend language. A logo told a story. A logo became a point of recognition. A logo became a brand. And I didn't want some silly gun picture or a set of sights or something stupid like that. I wanted something with history and legacy and meaning. The search began. After some study...I arrived at the Triquetra. The Triquetra (/traɪˈkwɛtrə/; Latin tri- "three" and quetrus "cornered") originally meant "triangle" and was used to refer to various three-cornered shapes. Also known as a "trinity knot"...

OUR SLIDES ARE MADE OF US STEEL, ON AMERICAN MACHINES AND BY AMERICAN WORKERS - HERE IS ANOTHER REASON WHY. Kobe Steel, a major Japanese supplier of steel and other metals worldwide, has admitted that it faked the specifications to metals shipped to hundreds of companies over the past decade. "Last week, Kobe Steel admitted that staff fudged reports on the strength and durability of products requested by its clients -- including those from the airline industry, cars, space rockets, and Japan's bullet trains. The company estimated that four percent of aluminum and copper products shipped from September 2016 to August 2017 were falsely labelled, Automotive News reported. But on Friday, the company's CEO, Hiroya Kawasaki, revealed the scandal has impacted about 500 companies -- doubling the initial count -- and now includes steel products, too. The practice of falsely labeling data to meet customer's specifications could date back more than 10 years, according to the Financial Times." WHAT IS YOUR SLIDE MADE OF?? Read more →


REMINGTON 870 AMPHIBIAN 12 GAUGE (NP3) Introducing the Suarez International 14" Amphibian Remington 870 pistol grip firearm. The Amphibian is 26.5" long with a 14" barrel, and is an extremely small, light, and portable weapon. And finished completely in NP3 it is suitable for maritime duties or for service in any wet environment that would otherwise harm a weapon with a standard finish.

Police work in the last decade of the twentieth century was challenging and brutal period for police officers. If one did his job correctly – that is seeking and closing with the bad guys – he often found himself in a welcoming office assigned to Internal Affairs. Careers and lives were often adversely derailed in that deceptive office, where often they asked you to leave your weapons outside. It was a place where one often found an assumed brother’s knife firmly planted in his back. And if you were in the Gang Unit, they had a special file cabinet just for you. In honor of those harrowing times, we present – The Internal Affairs The Internal Affairs is a knife designed to be very easily concealed and for use with intuitive close quarters stabbing and slashing. If you know how to throw a punch you can use this knife. Like all the knives in the Grab N Stab series, it is intended for the brutal reality of a knife fight and not driven by esoteric or artistic pursuits. Equally useful... Read more →


I have been doing this for a long time now. My teaching career began in 1977, teaching Karate at the Burbank YMCA. It was great gig for a 17 year old and it paid for gas and for the cost of dating the girl that would become my wife. I know how to teach people to do violence. I doubt there are many men on earth that have done so as long or as diversely, or as widely as I have. In fact, I am sitting at the hotel bar right how pondering the lessons from my last class here in Texas. My job as a teacher is not to stroke the student's ego...as so many do today. My job is to show them truth. If they suck...it is my job to patiently show them...but also to show them how to overcome that. Many of my students have killed bad guys. Some as private citizens...others on the payroll of city or nation. I have done this on five continents. One might say I know a few things. So this can... Read more →
