Anyone who has been a fan of Paladin’s Action Library over the years knows and respects the name Loren Christensen. Loren served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War as a military policeman in Saigon. When he returned to the States in 1972, he joined the Portland, Oregon, Police Bureau, where he worked street patrol, gang intelligence and riot control among many other duties. He retired from the force in 1997 and since then has written dozens of books, many of them for Paladin Press, and also stars in several Paladin DVDs.
Loren has established himself as the go-to guy for everything from practical instruction on winning an ugly street fight to escaping a riot to surviving when school or workplace violence erupts. In the course of his life, Loren has met and worked with many people who can be called “warriors”—people who run toward danger rather than away from it; people who protect and rescue others even at the cost of their own safety.
In Warriors: More on Living with Courage, Discipline, and Honor, Loren presents an expanded and updated version of his 2004 best-seller and allows a diverse mix of fellow warriors to tell, in their own words, what it’s like to sacrifice, to train, to fear, to protect ... even to kill ... to accomplish what needs to be done.
We spoke with Loren about his background in law enforcement and his experiences in martial arts and how they relate to real world self-defense. To see complete descriptions of Loren’s titles (including video clips of his most popular DVDs), search our online store at www.paladin-press.com today.
