Hock Hochheim is an award-winning fiction, non-fiction, military and police veteran who writes about crime, criminals and self-defense. He tours internationally teaching self-defense to military, police and civilians in 9 allied countries annually. Both Hock’s fiction and no-fiction is based extensively on his deep research, extensive knowledge and experience with crime, criminal mines and real-life experience Hock served in military law enforcement in Korea in the 70’s, participated state-side in the evacuation of Vietnam, then settled down to fight crime as a detective in North Texas for more than 22 years when organized crime was likely at it’s highest. Later, Hock served as a private investigator and in 2000 he launched his company Scientific Fighting Congress (now known as Force Necessary) to teach military, police and civilians self-defense all over the world. In 2000, (just prior to 911) out of deep concern for the safety of our country and its citizens, Hock launched Close Quarter Combat Magazine which sold in 26 countries for more than 5 years, a publication that became the bedrock of many self-defense organizations that are growing and flourishing today. Hock was the founder in many respects of the current self-defense training movement and even coined many of the terms which are widely used and accepted within the industry today. That said, he stood on the shoulders of many who came before him in the industry as well, such as Ed Parker, Remy Presas, Arnesto Presas, and many more, learning from the masters and then expanding what he knew and taking it all to the next level.
Throughout his career Hock has been a prolific writer, storyteller and educator about all things related to crime, criminal minds, self-defense, personal protection and law enforcement. He has an uncanny ability to teach, entertain and enlighten both in person and in his books. One of the most fascinating things about his work is that his teaching and writing is based extensively on his real-life experience. His characters in his fiction are composites of situations and personalities he’s actually known, sometimes arrested and helped convict for their terrible crimes against humanity. His non-fiction takes into account likely situations police, military and citizens may encounter during their lifetime and helps those people learn how to better provide for their own protection and protect their families. Hock has dedicated his life to teaching, military, police and citizens how to protect themselves. He has a long history of finding criminals, bringing them to justice and putting them behind bars. He tirelessly researches everything related to crime, criminals, social situations and genetics that lead to crime and continually works to find new ways to teach people how to overcome crime which is constantly evolving. These stories play themselves out with great detail and accuracy in his fiction and in his training guides.
Hock’s sold more than 34K books in 40+ countries to date. He continues to write fiction, non-fiction and how-to books related to self-defense and crime and he continues to tour internationally teaching self-defense.
