Instructor Training

Who are we?

The CSA instructors are different from most. We have decades of experience teaching personal defense, but we also have enough years still ahead of us to remain energetic and open-minded. Rather than just borrowing from military and law enforcement, we teach defensive techniques for everyday citizens, whose goals and contexts are often very different from those of most soldiers and cops. Most importantly, we go out of our way to make our students feel comfortable, to respect their time and investment, and to make defensive training accessible, practical, and enjoyable for all.
