Force Necessary is an international teaching organization started by Hock Hochheim in 1996 that is dedicated to researching and instructing less-than-lethal and lethal hand, stick, knife and gun combat. His research sources for the criteria are from police, military, the martial arts, and the aware citizen, taking the best of what works from each. He then filtered and organized the material based on his own views and personal experience (stemming from more than 30 years or military and police experience). His goal, his mission, is to bridge the gap between these sciences and educate all of these groups. Enlightened members inside each group know things about war, crime, combat, and survival that the other groups do not.
