Back in the day…Bruce Lee advised his first generation students to stick to backyard and garage workouts. “Keep it small,” he advised. I started in the JKD Universe in 1986, I attended many a session and seminar with the “First Class” by Guro Dan Inosanto, Sifu Larry Hartsell, and Tim Tackett, Paul Vunak, Terry Gibson and others. I earned some JKD instructorships along the way which I let slip off, trying to avoid the world of JKD politics. The materials remain in my body and mind like bricks in a big wall. A garage wall. I also believed deeply in the Lee message of constant growth and useful evolution. This seminar I cover some of the early materials, as well as cover a little old-school, Filipino too! As well as the hand, stick, knife, gun combatives evolution into the practical/tactical world. But...back in the garage. Back in the backyard. Back...Back...
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. He 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 from 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. He currently teaches some 30 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, Hock has already been teaching for decades.

Please wear street clothes! Especially pants with pockets and a street belt. Please bring ALL your gear. Training knives, guns, sticks. Two focus mitts or two thai-style pads. We will have some to share, but it would be wise and helpful to bring some. On the training knives, please try to bring a dull, training folder. If you have a fixed blade folder, having a sheath and belt for it would be good.

(Hey! 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 me.)
