155 - Force Necessary News

News and events from Hock, FN training groups and friends worldwide.

FN - UK news:

Pic: Some of the new recruits at our weekly self defence workshop in Stroud.

We’ve got a great group featuring a mix of experienced and brand new people who continue to go from strength to strength.

This month’s themes are Stop 1 solutions to first contact problems, understanding key safety ideas, Stop 5 methods of escaping holds and a ton of other stuff!

Our specialist Knife Defence workshops are continuing to deep dive and explore ways of surviving and countering knife assault situations.

We’re seeing real development of ability every week and I believe this work is both unique and effective in giving trainees a much deeper understanding of possible solutions.

Hock news:

This weekend, Hock’s training with David Kerwood’s Force Necessary: US group in Meridian, Mississippi.

See Hock’s Facebook page for more details.
