Have you ever questioned what you have been teaching or taught? Deep down you know it is flawed due to the size and strength of the opponent, or maybe physical ability and gender of student, but you still have to teach it because it’s PART OF THE SYLLABUS?
If you have questioned this then you sound like the ideal candidate we are looking for. We want our instructors to think OUTSIDE THE BOX and develop into world class teachers. Unlike other self-defence disciplines and traditional martial arts we do not have a syllabus, we exchanged linear techniques for principles. Following principles means you develop mental agility and can react to the situation and survive.

I have studied with Sam for over 10 years and I have always been impressed by his passion, skill and knowledge. Just when you think you have mastered a technique Sam will show you a variation or a tweak which takes it to the next level. Suffice to say he is an ideal role model and a great teacher.Paul Brennan
