I wrote the Combat Codes because I couldn't find any fiction out there that integrated mixed martial arts in an accurate and satisfying manner. A current search for 'MMA fiction' on Amazon provides less than satisfactory results.
I wanted to write story that represented the millions of MMA, brazilian jiu jitsu, judo, boxing and muay thai fans out there. A novel that appreciated the grace of a well-timed osoto gari sweep or the dull thud of a devastating leg kick. A book that captured the many nuances of MMA that have made it the fastest growing international sport in the world.
Throw that passion for unarmed combat into the sci-fi worlds that I inhabited throughout my childhood... and you have the Combat Codes.
