"W. Hock Hochheim has over 40 years experience in military, policing and martial arts. As an Army military police patrol officer and investigator, and as a retired Texas patrol officer and detective, and as private investigator and protection/bodyguard, he has worked all those years in “line operations” never taking a promotions exam or admin job.
Hock possesses a unique experience and savvy that very few other instructors have, all blended with a career in the martial arts dating back to 1972 and the earning of several black belts in various Pacific Island/Archipelago martial arts from the Philippines, Hawaii and Japan.
He has forged his Force Necessary courses by “bridging the gap,” between the military, the police, the martial arts and the aware citizenry, as each group knows things about fighting that the others do not. Hock has been a paid consultant trainer for the US Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force. He has taught at police academies for police agencies, be they street or SWAT, in the US, South Africa, England, Ireland, Germany and Australia, recently instructing at the Special Operation base in Italy. He currently teaches some 25 seminars a year in 12 countries as far as China and Australia.
Many of the martial and survival topics popular in the last few years and under newer cool, names, such as "gun arm grappling," etc., Hock has already been teaching for decades.Don't know Hock? Check out his endorsements, click here
(Hey folks! A heads up! Sometimes life happens. Or, weather happens. Stuff happens. People get sick or even...die. And these seminars can get canceled or moved. Whatever. In the last 22 years we have had to cancel only three seminars, but emergencies happen. If you don't pre-register? At least drop me a line/email that you are coming at HockHochheim@ForceNecessary.com, and I can keep you posted if there are any changes. If you don’t? And if you just show up...cold...at the door? And something happened and we are not there? Sorry. You shoulda’ told us.)
