“For more than 4 decades I wanted to create a program that was the essence of combat. Style-free. Arts-free. Sports-free. The essence of hand, stick, knife and gun fighting. I envisioned a person skilled in unarmed combatives, yet armed with a rifle, or a pistol, or a stick or a knife, or all of them, that could fight standing, seated, kneeling and on the ground, utilizing their “hands,” or whatever weapon was needed, and doing what was morally and legally necessary to win/survive the crime or war situation. These Training Mission books document my mission.” - Hock

"Integrating my Stop 6 program into the Force Necessary courses has forged a better, organized, digestible, fantastic progressions." - Hock

Hock’s Training Mission One is an unarmed and multi-weapon collection of his Force Necessary, Level 1 hand, stick, knife and gun course materials. The material is organized through his Stop 6 training program as it’s skeleton. Stop 1 is all the vital, pre-fight, pre-crime moves, interview and ambush, counter-stalking information and intelligence, plus the stress drills and scenarios of weapon, quick draws. The unarmed level covers all the Level 1 strikes, kicks and grappling. A practitioner may choose to study one or all of those 4 courses. The book is in two parts. Part 1 covers the pre-crime, pre-fight criteria of Stop 1 of the Stop 6. Part 2 of the book covers the physical and mental requirements, skills, drills and scenarios specific for hand, stick, knife and gun level 1.

New, revised edition of Training Mission Two coming in mid 2021....

What's the "author's cut?" We've heard the term "Director's Cut" in movies. But here, should you want an autographed, collectable, hardcover for your collection or as a gift, it's the author's cut you want. It costs a little more because the publisher sends the book to Hock first and he signs it and then sends it out, doubling the postage.

W. Hock Hochheim is a military vet, police vet and multiple martial arts, black belt vet with 3 decades of line operations experience, much of that time as a criminal investigator. He currently teaches hand, stick, knife and gun in some 25 seminars a year in 11 allied countries.


"Hock released the 2nd edition of his Training Mission One book and it is a fantastic resource. It is not a martial arts manual, though it does show some techniques. It's packed with tons of well thought out and researched info on a wide array of topics that would be useful to anyone in LE or security or anyone into martial arts from a "real world" self-defense perspective. If you are a hand, stick, knife, or gun person, or train to deal with hand, stick, knife, and/or gun problems, you really should grab this book. I can almost guarantee you there are topics in this book that never occurred to you and you're going to want to incorporate into your training. Seriously, get the damn book already!" - Kevin Bradbury, Kansas City, MO


"If Hock Hochheim wrote want to read it." - Shawn Zirger, Canada
