Ryan "Rico" was inspired with the vision of making advanced protection mentoring available to anyone who has internet access when many households and corporations began asking for guidance in how to respond to their rising safety and security concerns. Seeing how most mainstream, advanced defense training is focused towards law enforcement and US Department of Defense personnel, Rico was motivated to offer more comprehensive methods for those with less experience.
Using perspective stemming from management of multiple
defense organizations, combined with experience gained through protecting professional athletes, actors, political, and high net-worth personnel, Rico developed defense and survival training that is easily learned and most effective for all experience levels.
After receiving multiple opportunities to collaborate in international and third-party protection developments, the opportunity for Rico to positively impact community, and increase safety within U.S. borders deepened the motivation to build P3 ACADEMY. Rico has made over 30 international, tactical deployments, both in U.S. military special operations and private protective enterprise. He has been instrumental in strengthening numerous Fortune 100 organizations and flag nation cabinet personnel through mentoring in operational and administrative defense strategies and tactics.
Having a broad range of experience in protection, training, and management, ranging from US Department of Criminal Justice Service certifications to Maritime Anti-Piracy operations, Rico brings key academic and technical understanding to help proteges find the most viable answers for their safety concerns.
To encourage the pre-staging of success in a balanced and safety-focused community lifestyle, Rico promotes the principle that the strength to overcome potentially, or actively, destructive social behavior is found in consistently investing in what is constructive. Rico believes that beyond tactical and strategic safety, positive investment in individual, constructive life-skills is critical to individual and collective success. Rico emphasizes that individual choices made for the sake of altruism will powerfully strengthen communities, regions, and nations in ways which ultimately reduce the need for security forces.
Examples of this value system are demonstrated through Rico's diverse community building pursuits. Rico holds to the stance that building upon what is positive and constructive is always more powerful and celebratory than time and effort spent criticizing obvious flaws existing within current political, social, or personal paradigms.
Rico continues to be called upon to invest his time and life experience in others as a keynote speaker, offering guidance to non-profit organizations, and to contribute to the international community as a mentor, guardian, and friend.
At P3 ACADEMY, we are committed to teaching what is effective, efficient, and ethical. We are committed to demonstrate and recommend only the best protection, success, and survival principles and products; nothing less.
We believe that the strength of our organization is always dependent on how we build up our weakest link. To enable the highest effectiveness, all of our mentors and instructors have been fully vetted to emulate our quality standards. All mentors are invited to collaborate with our organization in serving your best interests only after an extended period of time has been spent observing their personal character, ability to collaborate, and subject matter proficiency.
P3 ACADEMY teaches you how to safely do what you need to do, in any environment, so you can have the freedom and peace of mind to engage in what you want, and love to do, most.
We believe that pursuits in philanthropy, community involvement, or recreation begin with enabling the confidence and peace of mind that you are free and safe to walk your desired path. We teach you how to apply the principles of life defense into each of your unique life pursuits.
Our affiliate mentoring programs teach you how to set yourself apart to achieve those goals in the financial and corporate areas of your life. From building greater reputation within an existing venture, to striking out confidently on a new entrepreneurial path, there is no more efficient way to reach your goals than through being guided by experienced mentors.
Whether simply illustrating how to filter clean water in a disaster survival event, protecting high-profile personnel, or building corporate harmony through preemptive conflict resolution, each P3 ACADEMY mentor is a subject matter expert in their field. Many routine corporate or household safety and security disciplines may not seem as intriguing, or as energizing, as more adventurous pursuits, like skydiving from an aircraft, but the importance of applying the right methods, principles, and expertise to, "Protect What's Important To You", are just the same.
Our mentors treat all of our proteges as prize performers, not as "clients". As one of our proteges, you have human value and are therefore our irreplaceable, highest priority. We aim to add to the fullness of your life experience by delivering our life experience; custom tailored and focused on your needs.
At P3 ACADEMY, we believe that our mentoring process isn't truly successful until you see the positive results in your lifestyle and community. We believe that once you experience the benefits of owning your own stability, safety, and security, you are then empowered to benefit the lives of others.
At P3 ACADEMY, our quality standards require that every mentor has performed and lived what is being taught. Every live seminar and training video is delivered with the authority that comes from verifiable experience. We celebrate the opportunity to deliver real subject matter expertise as this is the only true way to offer you real value. Our courses are based on tactics and strategies that have been performed under real pressure in a real-world environment.
We are confident that by presenting you with the exact material and coaching you need, we serve you by bringing you the same, successful results that we have experienced. We focus on bringing unmatched value to you through diversity of experience, practical approach to meeting your everyday concerns, and commitment to ethical practices.
