GHOST WRITING: Hardcover Edition By James Loriega
Hardcover: $24.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Tactical Pen is neither a Kubotan nor a yawara stick, as most “magazine experts” would have you believe. The fact that it can function as such is certainly beneficial, but believing... More > that's all it is can be very limiting. The current iterations of tactical pens are legitimate writing instruments that can also be employed as practical but (generally) legal implements of personal protection. They represent a viable option for anyone who wants to enhance their ability to defend themselves without resorting to actual weapons or enrolling in long-term dojo training. There's actually nothing “tactical” about these pens: they can't fight for you, can't escort you to safety, or can't even call the police. They simply replace your hand in delivering your defensive blows. But then, that's all you actually need.< Less

Marine Corps Combat Instructors do not have this manual—or any manual on the combat use of the KA-BAR knife. Why? Simply because they have their knife method internalized. They can teach it in...

Not to learn it: to internalize it—because they won't have a manual with them when they need this knowledge to save their lives. Learn what they already know! Hardcover edition.< Less

Martial arts practitioner and scholar Donn F. Draeger described ninjutsu as “the Art of Protection Against Danger.” If protecting against all danger is your art, the principal weapons in... More > your arsenal become foresight, awareness, a well-honed intuition and a studied insight into your fellow man. These are the same weapons that Baltasar Gracian developed, advocated, and utilized in Spain against the brightest thinkers of his day. Prudence, circumspection, sagacity, discipline, and all the other attributes that Gracián encourages his reader to demonstrate are the selfsame attributes required of the ninja. The purpose of this small book is to introduce the ninjutsu practitioner—and the interested reader in general—to the tenets of Baltasar Gracián and to the wisdom contained his writings. Much has already been written about Gracián, but what is relevant to us is that he was a Spanish Jesuit Priest in the 17th century, a philosopher, and, in his own way, a master in the practice of the shinobi ways.< Less
CHOPSTICKS SELF-DEFENSE HC By James Loriega
Hardcover: $24.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
There are many reasons that make chopsticks a viable option for concerns related to everyday personal protection. Their possession is legal; they are inexpensive to acquire and to easy replace; they... More > are sturdy in function, light to carry, and effective to use. For martial artists, chopsticks spare potential damage to your hands, while increasing the damage you can cause an assailant. Moreover, their defensive use is scalable, depending of the nature of the threat. These are but a few of the many attributes that make them an obvious option as either a primary or a back-up means of personal protection, and a worthy alternative to carrying dubious or illegal self-defense weapons.< Less

Prudence, discretion, circumspection, sagacity, discipline, and all the other attributes and qualities that Gracián encourages his reader to demonstrate are the selfsame attributes and qualities required of the shinobi. How, then, could Gracián's writings not be relevant to the contemporary practitioner of Ninjutsu?< Less
BASIC PRINCIPLES OF PSYCHOLOGICAL OPERATIONS By James Loriega
Paperback: $9.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Psychological Operations can encourage popular discontent with the opposition's leadership and by combining persuasion with a credible threat, degrade an adversary's ability to conduct or sustain... More > military operations. They can also disrupt, confuse, and protract the adversary's decision-making process, undermining command and control. When properly employed, PSYOPS have the potential to save the lives of friendly or enemy forces by reducing the adversary's will to fight. By lowering the adversary's morale and then its efficiency, PSYOPS can also discourage aggressive actions by creating disaffection within their ranks, ultimately leading to surrender.< Less
BOWIE: The Man, The Blade, The Method By James Loriega
Hardcover: $24.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
In a nation that has designed and created many of the world's scientific and sophisticated mechanisms of war, the Bowie knife will always be regarded as the quintessential American weapon. Despite... More > the home-grown provenance of such modern engines of destruction as the H-Bomb, ICBMs, and unmanned drones, the centuries-old Bowie knife typifies America's warrior ethic. In the fierce and formidable blade of the Bowie knife is captured the merging of civilized society with the wild frontier, and of the westward march of history that drew many of us here in the first place. The Bowie knife represented the way early 19th century Americans thought of themselves: simple and uncomplicated, yet rugged, hard working, self-sufficient, and capable of overcoming any obstacles that stood to hinder or hamper their essential individualism. And while it may at times seem that some 21st century Americans have lost those attributes, this modest work was written with the rest in mind.< Less
BARATERO: An Introduction to the Spanish Navaja By James Loriega

The innumerable sailors, seafarers, soldiers, explorers, and other edged weapons users who traversed Seville throughout the 16th and 17th centuries made their unique martial contributions to the... More > unnamed but growing body of navaja techniques. In time, the regional techniques for using the knife came to be informally known to as Acero Sevillano (in English, Sevillian Steel) and the navajas carried specifically for fighting were called sevillanas. Since that time, the navaja has been carried and used by the rich and not-so-rich people from the cities and villages, in times of feast and famine. Its design was influenced by Moslems, used by Christians, and crafted by Jews. It was a weapon that was considered indispensable by both thugs and aristocrats, and that was equally popular with both Spaniards and gypsies. It crossed the hands—and also drew the blood—of countless people, both in and out of its native Spain.< Less
