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.
