Unarmed Combat Training for Citizens, Soldiers, Martial Artists and Law Enforcement

“Force Necessary: Hand! There are many martial arts. And, in the last decade or so, many unarmed martial, “combatives” courses. There are short, crash unarmed “GED” courses/schools, and longer unarmed, “college” course versions.

I, sadly for me, have no flashy sales marketing, no addictive angle to dangle and catch the passing eye. No fancy suits or billboard uniforms, or connections to movie stars. I just have several courses and one is the FN:Hand course, about handling recalcitrant friends and relatives, and fighting criminals and enemy soldiers when you are unarmed. This course comes from 40 years of diverse martial, police and military training and real experiences. And it is more of a college course in length, so – bad news folks – it takes a long time, like you know, like tennis or cabinet building, or something. It takes time to be a savvy self-defense “fighter” (and I dislike that generic term “fighter” too, for what I try to make, to represent. I don’t just make…”fighters.” I try to make good people with big minds, who must sometimes – fight). Time- but I will tell you, I have no time for excessive and unnecessary, exotic moves.” – W. Hock Hochheim

In the attached PDF you will see the multi-page, color, FN:Hand course broken down and explained. My course is popular world-wide, for over 20 years for a reason. Please do check it out, click here

While Holding Mitt Drill

Situation-Based Combat. Event-Driven Self-Defense. Combat-Scenario Based.

In Unarmed Combat, my central focus is urban, suburban, rural and battlefield fighting winning, survival and self-defense, based upon military and police defensive tactics and the best of martial arts – bridging this gap” between all of these systems.

I believe in the seamless application of all good tactics in all ranges of combat – standing, kneeling and prone. I don’t consider myself a martial arts instructor. I am more of a friendly drill sergeant, or police academy instructor teaching you real-world survival skills in a mixed weapon, mixed-person world.” — Hock

This Unarmed Combatives Training Course covers mentality, strategies and tactics in hand vs. hand, hand vs. knife, hand vs. stick, and hand vs. gun threats. Level 1 (beginner) thru Level 10 (which is a Black Belt – see requirements listed below), taught in approximately 40 training modules. The first nine levels prepare you for the 10th level which is a performance of some 200 combat scenarios in all ranges of standing, kneeling and prone reality combat.

We will often recognize your blood, sweat, tears and martial time in other systems and kick-start people into an appropriate rank for them, providing Hock is familiar with your other systems and has seen you perform in classes and at seminars. (Click on “Instructor” button for info about instructors in your area.)

I will never tell you how to fight. That is up to you, based on your size, your strength, your age and other personal specs. You learn these universal self defense, hand to hand combat training moves, exercise them and select your favorites.

In these Self-Defense Hand to Hand Combat videos you will learn:

  • Vital, life-saving conversions of classical and traditional martial art techniques over to reality fighting.
  • Hundreds of skill, power and fighting savvy developing drills that police and soldiers won’t usually know.
  • Hundreds of street survival strategies & techniques, that martial artists/soldiers won’t usually know.
  • Non-classical, non-traditional, no katas, no sports, no kids, no contracts, no uniform.
  • Rank certification and instructorships are available, or just simply train for knowledge!
  • Learn the tactics/plans of criminals and enemy soldiers, how they will ambush you and fight you.

The Force Necessary: Hand! Unarmed Combat Training Videos (Organized in Modules)

These self-defense combat training videos (they also teach offensive tactics) consist of strikes, kicks, cranks, invading entries, takedowns, throws in standing, kneeling and ground combat scenarios, with and against empty hands, or modern weapons like sticks, knives and guns. All supported by skill developing drills. This is perhaps like a college course of fighting. The first three levels are designed to be the basic self-defense crash course.
