Jack Hoban was shaped by service in the U.S. Marine Corps, a life-changing epiphany at a Cold War bar, and mentorship under two masters: The 34th generation grandmaster of the shadowy art of the Ninja and a sage of the Natural Law who may just have deciphered the meaning of life.

It's been a long time since I read a book which contained wisdom I felt was both powerful and important.

The "life value" concept which forms the basis of the book seems so simple that it could at first glance be dismissed as common sense. And to be honest, I felt it was just that as I read through the initial pages.

A little ways into the book the author started to describe relative values, how they can override the life value, and the horrible things which can and have happened as a result. That

Jack Hoban continues to expand on the idea articulated by Robert Humphrey in "Values for a New Millennium". He puts forth some excellent ideas for an integrated training approach to develop the "Ethical Warrior", ideas that we ignore at our peril and the peril of the next generation of Law Enforcement and Military personnel. ...more

A book packed full of wisdom based on experience dealing with conflict and violence. P ace keeping and winning without fighting if possible is the way to go but if violence is necessary to protect others or self then the moral high ground is necessary to maintain legitimacy. The Ethical Warrior is a guidebook for doing just that. I highly recommend this book.

I have been a fan of Jack Hoban’s books for a couple of decades. Before his books, I read his articles in various martial arts magazines. From 1999 to 2005, I would drive six hours to train with him once a month. It was during this time I was introduced to the idea of being an ethical warrior. In his book, The Ethical Warrior: Values, Morals and Ethics - For Life, Work and Service , Hoban shares his research and insight to this very important topic. With the number of killings at the hands ...more
