Jared Wihongi is a rare breed of warrior. With a background in contracting, martial arts, and law enforcement he has acquired many amazing accomplishments. As a lifelong Filipino martial artist, he’s acquired the Title of Tuhon. As a law-enforcement officer, he has trained many units and served as a SWAT officer for many years. As a man, he is raising an amazing family and is very connected to his Maori New Zealand roots.
So much of what I hope the world someday comes to understand about warriors is that we are so much more than our combative, tools and physical strength. In order to be effective at all of those things, we must possess a healthy route system and an ecosystem that actually makes us truly the types of assets we train to be for the tribes we serve. These disciplines must be present not only in the gym, the range, or dojo but in all other aspects of life as well if we are ultimately to be healthy.
Jared is a prime example of what that type of warrior and that type of lifestyle looks like. Beyond all of this is an integrated combative system SURVIVAL EDGE TACTICAL which brings all aspects of protection together into one effective system. There’s something in this interview for absolutely everyone… ENJOY!
Protector by nature and by trade
