Featuring Jack Hoban
The unique tactical maneuver skills presented in the Ethical Protector video series 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.

Fortunately, that much-needed counter comes in the form of Jack Hoban's "Ethical Protector" DVD series. Mr. Hoban has clarified a very important concept for us; the idea that conflict resolution is not one-sided (the development of physical skills for protection). There is also an ethical component, which is just as important - if not more so - than simply acquiring a set of techniques you can use against an attacker.
In Volume 1 of his DVD series, Mr. Hoban demonstrates five scenarios; self defense situations for lack of a better term. In each scenario, Mr. Hoban simultaneously teaches movement ideas that enable you to gain a tactical advantage to protect yourself, and at the same time talks us through the mindset of an ethical protector to help keep us mindful of the ultimate purpose of protecting ourselves. (Namely, to protect ourselves rather than fight the opponent.) This is not a trivial inclusion, nor should it be taken lightly; the combination of physical and ethical skills are groundbreaking and a welcome change from what is commonly being taught to people today. The pairing of physical and ethical skills seems to me as paramount.
Of special note in this DVD is the addition of "tie-in" segments - stories with ethical/values-based messages that help to clarify the ethical protector concept. These are real-case stories that help to illustate what the ethical protector is all about. I found these tie-ins to be very helpful in putting these ideas into a real-world perspective.
I cannot recommend this DVD highly enough. Thanks to Mr. Hoban for providing us with a clear path to keeping everyone safe.
