Why Train With Us?

The  3 Interrelated Reasons that you should Train with us:

Reason 1

The CFS Instructor Development Program is so intense, that only 50% of the candidates actually pass the course and become Active CFS Instructors.  In fact, each CFS Instructor must go complete an annual review to determine whether or not they are still qualified to remain Active as an Instructor.


Reason 2

Each CFS Instructor must adhere to the Professional Code of Defensive Shooting Instructors. This is our “CODE”:


1. We are committed to the safety of our students, and hold that the expected benefit of any training activity must significantly outweigh any known or perceived risk of that activity.
2. We believe that it is our responsibility to understand not just what we’re teaching, but WHY we’re teaching any technique or concept, or offering specific advice.
3. We recognize that defensive shooting skills, along with the drills and gear used, are inherently specialized and usually distinct from those of target shooting, competition and hunting endeavors.
4. We will encourage our students to ask questions about course material, and we will answer them with thorough and objective explanations.
5. We understand that Integrity and Professionalism are subjective traits and we strive to maintain high levels of both. We are capable of, and willing to, articulate the reasons for the way we conduct our courses and how we interact with students & peers.
6. We believe that it is valuable to engage our peers in constructive conversation about differences in technique and concept, with the goal of mutual education and evolution.
7. We believe that the best instructor is an avid student, and we will strive to continually upgrade our own skills and knowledge. As part of this belief, we understand that our own teachings need to be subject to critique and open to evolution.

Reason 3

Our Teaching, Learning And Coaching Objective:
“..To Create a blueprint of consistent and efficient learned self-defense responses for each Student so that they are able to successfully respond to and survive a Dynamic Critical Incident (aka “a Combat Ambush”!).
