Event Details

Complete or enhance your KEF–IC instructor certification alongside instructors of the Australian Army Combatives Program (ACP).

The 2022 Kinetic Fighting–Integrated Combat Instructors’ Course is a forum for future and current instructors to develop their teaching capabilities and skill sets over two full days, and to cover new KEF–IC modules.

At Sargood Barracks, Melbourne, in one of the Australian Army’s ACP training facilities, you will take a deep dive into the application of KEF concepts. You’ll refine your skills and learn to teach the material hands-on, while being mentored by KEF’s highly experienced Combatives Master Trainers (CMTs). As part of the learning and qualification process, your lesson delivery will be evaluated by both the CMTs and fellow trainees, including currently licensed KEF–IC Instructors.

The KEF–IC Foxtrot and/or India modules are also included in the course*, along with a seat at the KEF Annual Dinner on the Saturday night. The dinner runs true to traditional Army customs and includes a three-course meal, wine and port (beer and spirits are available at bar prices). Extra tickets can be booked for partners and friends via this page from 1 November.

The cost of the course also covers a 12-month teaching license (to instruct the specific levels passed), two KEF–IC Instructor T-shirts and 10 free course books for your future students.**

Heading up the coaching will be Paul Cale — KEF–IC/ACP creator, Australian Defence Force Martial Arts Association (ADFMAA) Head Coach and former Commando Sergeant. He will be joined by ADFMAA Vice President and former Sergeant Major of the 7th Brigade Combatives Centre, WO1 (ret.) Aaron Johnston, along with other KEF–IC/ACP Combatives Master Trainers.

If you hold a KEF–IC Grey Belt or Green Belt rank, or are ready to grade to Grey Belt by 10 December (the grading will be covered on Saturday), you will be eligible to do this course. You will be educated in the finer points of teaching some or all of the KEF–IC modules A–E (in order, depending on your readiness for each), and certified to teach these modules after passing.***

This rare opportunity for critical skill-enhancement and coaching development at ACP/KEF–IC is limited to 20 people for this year, so don’t miss out!

Secure your place now with an immediate booking, or pay a 50% deposit and the balance by 1 December.  

* Instructors may choose to spend time completing further instructor training/assessments instead of Foxtrot and/or India modules. 

** Booklets and T-shirts for first-time instructors only.

*** Teaching can only begin after submission of a completed KEF–IC instructor license agreement and supply of a current public-liability insurance certificate.
