Force Necessary

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.

Hock also believes in a concept called the “seamless application” of all weapons and tactics in all ranges: standing, kneeling, sitting and on the ground, which a rare few people and systems even understand or are savvy enough to practice. Seamless is the key word. We also constantly wrestle with squeezing and ringing out the sporty and artsy aspects that infect real survival with dangerous sport and artsy cancers. It takes constant vigilance and oversight to work on this. This training is for regular citizens, martial artists, military, and police. We offer training, rank, and instructor-ships. Hock has long called it, “Bridging the Gap between the citizen, the soldier, the police and the martial artist. Each group knows things about fighting that the other doesn’t.”
