The Ethical Warrior:
Values, morals, and ethics for life, work and service
by Jack Hoban

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. He now delivers a revolutionary view of moral values for our time epitomized by the Ethical Warrior – protector of self and others as equal human beings. Hoban’s methodology reaches from the Greek ancients to the counterinsurgency efforts of today’s Marines to provide ethical clarity and confidence in our moral actions. The Ethical Warrior is of great value to those interested in living a balanced, happy and ethical life. It addresses important questions such as: Is there a “true north” on the moral compass? Is there an objective value that can be used to qualify our relative values as moral or immoral? How do we reject our tendency to dehumanize others not of our “in-group”– including our enemies – and respect true human equality? How do we do “the right thing” under the stresses of everyday life?

The Ethical Protector:
Police Ethics, Tactics and Techniques
by Jack E. Hoban and Bruce J. Gourlie
Edited by James V. Morganelli

The Ethical Warrior concept was developed and is practiced by the United States Marine Corps. It is transmitted to the Marines through the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP). The concept has been adapted for Law Enforcement and is referred to as the Ethical Protector concept. This book is adapted from a series of articles written originally for LEOs on, but be assured, the lessons herein are timeless and immutable. They can, have, and will grant us clarity. Clarity for the protector in all of us.

The adaptation of the United States Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP) model for use in police work has the potential to make a wonderful profession even more remarkable. If you're a cop - or aspire to be one - this book can be an invaluable resource."  - Doug Wyllie PoliceOne Editor in Chief

The Ethical Protector: Combative Skills Volume I:
Tactical Maneuver & Protector Ethics
by Jack Hoban

The unique tactical maneuver skills presented in this video were developed and field-tested to keep you safe in physical conflict situations, whether you are a law enforcement officer, military operative, or citizen protector. Effective conflict resolution also calls for ethical behavior. Jack Hoban and James Morganelli present training scenarios that illustrate the deep connection between tactical movement and ethical conduct. The RGI ethical-tactical approach stems from "The Dual Life Value," a theory of human nature that protects and respects the value of self and others, even the opponent's. In addition to the in-depth physical demonstrations, the video contains several inspiring Ethical Protector values stories.

Jack Hoban served as a U.S. Marine Corps Captain and is a long time practitioner of martial arts. He is a Master Instructor in the Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu and Togakure Ryu Ninjutsu systems under Grand Master Masaaki Hatsumi in Japan.

Jack Hoban served as a U.S. Marine Corps officer and is a long time practitioner of martial arts. He assisted in the creation of the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program and remains a subject matter expert for the program. Hoban has led more than 500 workshops and seminars around the world addressing universities, government and private organizations on ethics and martial arts, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and the New York Police Department (NYPD). He was a longtime associate of the late Robert L. Humphrey, noted conflict resolution specialist and author of "Values for a New Millennium." Hoban is also a master instructor in the Japanese Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu martial arts system.



General Charles C. Krulak, 31st Commandant of the United States Marine Corps: “Whether on the Battlefield or in the Boardroom, a strong value system is the most precious weapon of all. Nobody understood this more than Bob Humphrey. I cherish the time I spent with this remarkable man and count myself as blessed to have been under his tutelage.”

William S. Sessions, former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation: “Professor Humphrey's fresh look at human nature gives us insights and methods to break down walls between groups in conflict which can impact and help reduce cross-cultural violence.”

Colman Genn, Center for Educational Innovation and former Superintendent, New York City School System: “Bob Humphrey’s Life Values theory represents the clearest and most satisfying explanation of human nature in the last three thousand years of philosophy.”

Captain Jack E. Hoban, USMCR:  As Bob Humphrey talked, I felt that prickly sensation on the back of my neck. It was powerful, and really quite physical. The things that he said, the stories he told, touched me in a way that has changed me forever. I was stunned to hear him explain, clearly and matter-of-factly, the meaning of life.

Tie-Ins For Life
Stories That Teach Great Values and Inspire Moral Action

How do you teach values? How do you keep yourself and others motivated and positive under the stresses of everyday life, not to mention the rigors of combat as a U.S. Marine? "Not with lectures, that is for sure," says Joseph "Joe Marine" Shusko. Joe Shusko has mentored hundreds of Marines, police officers, and regular folk with great success for over thirty years. His secret? He tells them stories that inspire moral behavior and an enthusiastic perspective on life. He calls these stories "tie-ins" because they do more than make you feel good, they inspire moral action. "Ethics," says Joe, "are moral values in action. I typically give a 'tie-in' to my students after we have done some physical exercise together, especially martial arts training. This allows me to 'tie' a moral lesson to the physical action in order to make Ethical Warriors."

Jack Hoban is profiled in this book.

The United States Marine Corps is the smallest unit of the four branches that make up the U.S. Armed Forces. In spite of the relatively small number of people passing through its ranks, the Marine Corps produce a disproportionate share of this country's leaders. It is because Marines are different from the rest of the population. They have a different mindset and have been taught to handle problems in a different manner. They are taught to find a way to solve the problem, regardless of extenuating circumstances. They do not make excuses or try to determine why it can't be done. Marine Corps training instills the self-control, discipline, self-assurance, and leadership skills that lead to high achievement later in life. Above & Beyond, Former Marines Conquer the Civilian World profiles 88 former Marines who took that winning attitude and applied it to the civilian sector. This book introduces a mix of former Marines who are very successful in the civilian fields they have chosen; some of these former Marines you already know, and many you don't know. You will meet reservists, "one-termers" and "lifers", as well as a former Marine Commandant who is very successful in the private sector. You will find out a little bit about each person profiled, but as you read the stories collectively, you will see a camaraderie of many races, ages, and personalities that make up the U.S. Marine Corps. Above & Beyond is a must for former, current and future Marines and their families.
