Industry Spotlight


Based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and founded by Sam Rosenberg in 2003, INPAX® offers full spectrum Self-defense, Tactical Firearm, and Critical Incident Response Training programs for individuals, schools and corporations.

INPAX was “born as the direct evolution of a simple, yet profound, philosophy” that originated during Sam Rosenberg’s time body guarding executives, dignitaries and celebrities, including high-ranking members of the Israeli government, including Benjamin Netanyahu. Sam, and INPAX’s philosophy is that personal security is a fundamental human need, but that it ultimately falls to the individual to be responsible for themselves. Self defense is important, and not everyone is a wealthy celebrity or politician who can afford to hire a bodyguards.

With this in mind, INPAX serves to empower individuals and organizations to take on the full responsibility for their own security through training and tools provided by INPAX. Training is offered for individuals and families, schools, and corporations. INPAX also has a number of interesting and helpful products… with the INPAX Response Pen perhaps being the most notable.
