Paul Vunak

Sigung Paul Vunak is a world famous martial art Icon, and stated in black belt magazines as being one of the top 20 street fighters in the world. Paul Vunak learned from the legend Guro Dan Inosanto at his school from 1976-1986, and during that time he also taught classes at the Kali academy. In 1983 Paul started training with the Gracie brothers and stepped up his ground game. Through his own progression he created his own organization Progressive Fighting Systems and started to teach his brand of street fighting. During this time their was no UFC or mixed martial art bouts going on, and this type of training was ahead of it’s time. So in 1988 he was approached by the U.S. Department of Navy to move to Virginia to train the Navy Seals (for 3 & half years), and create a streamlined system called the R.A.T. ,which means Rapid Assault Tactics. This was where Paul was able to showcase his high level of expertise to the most elite soldiers in the world.
