"You've heard from the bouncers. You've heard from the jailors. You've even heard from many people with no experience at all. How about hearing from a veteran detective and patrolman who has investigated Texas and Military crimes for 26 years and has arrested over a thousand people? And that's not all. How about 40 years in the martial arts?"

Force Necessary architect, W. Hock Hochheim is a military and police vet, and a martial arts black belt in several systems, with 40 years real experience and training. Hock teaches his practical, tactical and event-based doctrines to police, military and citizens in 12 allied countries each year around the world. And now he and his programs are near you! If not near? Get his training films and books.

Hock has decades of  "boots on the ground" experience serving in both military and civilian law enforcement, and here at, he's made all that experience available to you through the learning method of your choice. “Force Necessary,” where Hock Hochheim offers you the benefit of his combat research and experience throrugh his excellent, pragmatic videos and books, and also through useful and informative seminars where he teaches you how to save yourself from ugly, volatile, dangerous situations.

Hock's training embraces and augments most name brand fighting systems and covers practical application of mixed martial arts "combat sports" to support seld defefencse and then what might be "self defense" by itslef. Our goal is not to replace the system you are learning, but to teach you more practical applications of what you may already know.  And if this is your first time to consider a fighting system, there's no better place to jump on board than at Force Necessary. 

"Our mission has been to bridge the gap between the military, the police, the martial artist, and the aware citizen. Each group knows things about fighting that the other doesn't. Today, we add to that mission statement the concept that you should use only that force necessary to win or survive. And sometimes force is necessary." – Hock, 1996

A lot has happened since our inception in 1996, when we called our organization The Scientific Fighting Congress. Hock has taught and worked with many experts worldwide. He's learned and experimented a lot with about 40 seminars a year in 11 allied countries as far away as South Africa, Australia, the Philippines and in Europe, having probably stepped into more martial arts schools, and onto more military bases for the purpose of comprehensive self-defense training than any other instructor currently teaching today.

Hock's constantly on the hunt for pragmatic, tactical and practical material to improve training and performance. Your performance. This isn't about Hock. It's not about the name of a system, it's not about being cool or stylish. It's really all about you, your shape, your size, your age, your vulnerabilities and strengths. You. Hock is here to inspire you.  He does not want to confine you into some cookie-cutter, one-size -fits-all mythical system.

All fights are highly, highly situational. We live in a mixed weapons world combined with a mixture of people and rules of engagement and use of force issues. It's complicated, but often can be simplified within the right enlightened framework.

When you strip it all down to the bare essence of combat, you find the real truth. All we need to do is customize some of the "before, during and after" steps to gear it for each group as needed. Hock teaches mixed weapon fighting while you are standing, kneeling, seated and even fighting while on the ground. A seamless blend of fighting tactics and strategies. You fight where you fight.

Hand, stick, knife, gun. We fight enemy soldiers and criminals. They use these things against us. We counter their threats and attacks. They welcome our fear, our misunderstandings, our timidity and our ignorance. They thrive and breed in your reluctance and hesitation.

We welcome you to benefit from our excellent Unarmed Combat, Stick Combat, Knife Combat, Gun CombatPacific Archipelago Combat, Police Judo, or Military Combat Training.  Start your training here…today…now…by downloading one of our excellent videos or ordering one of Hock's incredible books.  Start now to learn to protect yourself and your family. Share your discovery on social media with friends so they can do the same.  Everyone needs to know how to protect themselves. Everyone.

"I have been around a long time. I have seen a lot of death and destruction. Nothing I show you will be perfect. Everything I show you has a counter. I make no promises. I teach options and encourage long-term commitments for you to absorb all this. We get togther and just work out, experiment and exercise, and you should leave us smarter and with more savvy each time." – Hock
