How Can I Get More Involved?
We believe there are Warrior Poets everywhere and they have spanned the centuries. It is our sincere hope that this special community of like-minded individuals will continue to grow and effect change for the better. We want Warrior Poets in our police departments, all across our military, as federal agents, in the workplace, in EMS, in our churches, and in our universities. It is our passion and conviction to use our minds and bodies to protect others, which will make our communities and our world a safer place.

What is the Warrior Poet Society?
There is an old quote known to many in the world of self-defense:
"The state that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools."
The Warrior Poet Society answers a call; it is a call for a more elite protector. This call is for those who understand the high stakes of violence and who are willing to commit their minds and bodies to the task of defense so that they may prevail and others may live. Warrior Poets are those who train and fight for higher purpose. They are members of a rare fraternity of warriors who fight with intellect, conviction, and great skill. Motivated by a love for others, Warrior Poets become students of the art of war so that they may triumph when the enemy calls.
It is not good enough to simply train hard, we must train smart.
