Lawrence A. Kane

Lawrence A. Kane Lawrence Kane is the bestselling author of a dozen books, including two ForeWord Magazine Book of the Year Award finalists, an eLit Book Awards Bronze prize, a Next Generation Indie Book Awards finalist, and three USA Book News Best Books Award finalists. A founding technical consultant to University of New Mexico’s Institute of Traditional Martial Arts, he also has written numerous articles on martial arts, self-defense, countervailing force, and related topics.

Since 1970, Lawrence has studied and taught traditional Asian martial arts, medieval European combat, and modern close-quarter weapon techniques. Working stadium security part-time over 26 years he was involved in hundreds of violent altercations, but got paid to watch football. A world-renown judicious use-of-force expert, he was once interviewed in English by a reporter from a Swiss magazine for an article that was published in French, and finds that oddly amusing.

To pay the bills he develops IT strategies for an aerospace company where he gets to play with billions of dollars of other people’s money and make really important decisions. He has saved the company more than $2.1B by multisourcing select IT infrastructure elements to internal and external suppliers and benchmarking resultant contracts.

Lawrence lives in Seattle, Washington with his son Joey and wife Julie. You can contact him directly at
