Loren W. Christensen

Loren W. Christensen

As a professional writer since 1978, Mr. Christensen has penned nearly 60 published books with six publishers, dozens of magazine articles, and edited a police newspaper for seven years. He has written on the martial arts, missing children, street gangs, school shootings, workplace violence, riots, police-involved shootings, nutrition, exercise, prostitution, and various street subcultures. Of late, he has been writing an award-winning police thriller fiction series called Dukkha. His short stories--OLD ED and BOSS--are popular among fans of gritty action.

His books have been translated into five languages.

The Masters Hall of Fame inductee began training in the martial arts in 1965 and continues to this day. Over the years, he has earned a 1st-degree black belt in arnis, a 2nd-degree black belt in jujitsu, and in 2018, the American Karate Black Belt Association awarded Loren a 10th-degree black belt in karate.

As a result of his tour in Vietnam and nearly three decades in law enforcement, Mr. Christensen's focus in the martial arts--writing, teaching, and training--has always been on street survival, not competition. He has starred in seven martial arts training videos.
