  • Enable entrepreneurs to pursue their passion for teaching.

Our Motto

ad victoriam

         Latin for “to victory,” this motto was the clear choice when looking for a simple way to express our personal and professional goals. As a celebratory toast over a camp fire in the backwoods or an inspirational battle cry in the face of danger, ad victoriam reminds us all that failure means an unacceptable loss and so these things we do in practice we do for victory in real world application.

Our Definition

A Modern Warrior is an individual that seeks to master skills critical to self-reliance and personal defense all while blending with the society they live in. As such the Modern Warrior is a lifelong student of their craft regardless of their expertise in any given discipline, recognizing that complacency and over confidence are two of the most dangerous enemies for the Warrior. Modern Warriors move freely through the role of student, teacher, and defender throughout their lives as circumstances dictate.

In short, a Modern Warrior is a resilient and adaptive individual dedicated to life and freedom and prepared to defend those two at all cost.

Our Creed

Modern Warrior Creed

I am a Modern Warrior.

I am dedicated to preserving freedom and our way of life. 

While others blindly follow I courageously lead.

While others squander opportunity I seize it; While others surrender I fight; While others grow complacent I refine.

Though I embrace life I do not fear death. I willingly suffer during training so that I prevail during times of need. I trade my blood, sweat, and pain today for a victory tomorrow. 

Our Approach

Our approach to training is nested firmly in one undeniable truth – success is a mindset. Regardless of the curriculum, every training program we create shares the common objective of changing the way our Clients think in order to provide them with the tools necessary to win the day. The MWP model focuses on developing the four foundational blocks which support victory in any critical situation:

Survival | Tactics | Fitness | Preparation

Our Background

Officially launched in 2018, the Modern Warrior Project has been formally in the making since 2014. But the roots of the Project extend much deeper. The founder of the MWP, Shane Blevins, held the concept in mind as early as 1998, a few years after his enlistment in the US Army, throughout his career he continued to build the knowledge, skills, experience, and network necessary to make this ambitious mission a reality. In the past several years, the team came together to begin the extensive process of courseware and content creation, and establishing the professional architecture needed to roll-out the full line of MWP products and services.

Our Team

The core of the Modern Warrior Project is made up of passionate lifelong professionals. The administrative and business practices were born from proven organizational leaders in both the MIL/LE and private sector. Our training developers have unparalleled experience not only in instructional delivery but also in the curriculum design process, in-service training program revisions, instructor continuing education, quality control, and enterprise wide implementation making them the ideal choice for ensuring seamless distribution of our elite catalog. Finally, our Test & Evaluation team rigorously screens every product we bring to market so you can be confident it will serve you well.

 The MWP expertise comes from our time spent in:

  • Special Forces
  • Special Operations
  • Military Fixed Wing & Rotary Wing Aviation
  • Military Intelligence
  • S.E.R.E. (Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape)
  • Law Enforcement
  • SWAT
  • DoD Personnel Recovery
  • Inland and Maritime Search & Rescue
  • Government Contracting
  • Unit Training Management
  • DoD Program of Instruction Management
  • Training and Doctrine Development
  • Business Management
  • NRA
  • Certified Personal Training
  • Wilderness Adventure Guiding
  • Mixed Martial Arts

Even our contributors are hand selected and vetted before ever having an opportunity to represent the Project through publications. However, the true strength of the Project comes from the collective knowledge of the entire community. Every member has a voice and can directly contribute, which exponentially increases our ability to create, maintain, and distribute the most lifesaving training, products, and library of articles, videos, and podcasts around.
