Loren W. Christensen is a Vietnam veteran, retired police officer, a martial artist since 1965, and a prolific author of books and magazine articles.

As a writer, Loren has penned nearly 60 books and dozens of magazine articles on a variety of subjects. While his target audience is most often what he calls “the warrior community” – martial artists, cops, soldiers – his writing has become popular among high school and college students, parents, professionals of every kind, and people interested in a side of life outside the norm.

Loren is most thankful to his many friends, associates and fellow writers in the warrior community for their continual support and expert advice.

My newest short story is out and just in time for Halloween.

The fog crept in at the midnight hour, ominous, impenetrable.
Then THEY arrived ... silent and hidden …
… and began taking …
… parts.

Meditation for Warriors by Loren W. Christensen
“My meditation objective is to be calmer and to assist with my practice in aikido and krav maga. I generally sit between 10 and 20 minutes every day in the morning. What I have found is that if a meditation method works for you, then use it. I have seen some other styles of practice that I have initially thought nonsense, such as focusing on dolphin sounds, Indian shaman chanting, and so on. But if at the end of the day it works for you…then it works.”

“Speed is more than just how fast you can thrust your foot into the other guy’s stomach. Whether you’re punching, kicking, blocking, or moving your entire body, other factors are of equal importance, and they too must be trained.   ~Perception speed ~Reaction speed ~Movement speed ~Recovery speed”
Loren W. Christensen, Solo Training 3: 50 And Older

“Beware of false knowledge, it is more dangerous than ignorance” ~ Bernard Shaw”
Loren W. Christensen, Meditation for Warriors

“Diet is increasingly important as you age. At 59, I weigh 10 pounds more than I did in high school, and I can still wear size 34 jeans. But I can’t eat like I did in my 20's and 30's. Lean meat, veggies, and fresh fruit form the bulk of my diet. I rely on protein powder and protein bars to keep my protein intake up. When I do over-indulge, I do an extra workout or restrict my eating for a couple of days. I weigh daily and when the needle creeps up, I take action. Don’t let it get out of control because it's harder at this age to dump the weight ~ Steve Holley, veteran martial artist”

“A house is never still in darkness to those who listen intently; there is a whispering in distant chambers, an unearthly hand presses the snib of the window, the latch rises.” ~ J. M. Barrie”

“Understand this, a hospital is a gateway between the living and the dead. We’ve all had things happen to us here.”
Loren W. Christensen, Cops' True Stories of the Paranormal: Ghosts, UFOs, and Other Shivers

“It was a dark shadow figure, six-foot tall, yet I could see through it, and it was bending over one of the bagged bodies.”
Loren W. Christensen, Cops' True Stories of the Paranormal: Ghosts, UFOs, and Other Shivers

“Google “hospital spirits,” and you will find links to sites ranging from “haunted hospitals,” to blogs written by nurses telling of their experiences with the spirit world in the halls of working hospitals and those long-closed. One blogger nurse warns that if people could see what she sees of the spirit world in hospitals, pregnant women would never birth their children in them. To paraphrase: It doesn’t make sense to deliver a child in a place where sick and old people die. If there are no other options, at least first purify the space of wandering spirits, dark emotions, and thoughts.”
