    Top ten Aussie Instructors

    Post by drgndrew on Sat Sep 27, 2008 4:56 am

    G'day All,

    I'm just curious as to who you think are Australia's best RBSD instructors. I'm interested who has made it into the international spotlight. it doesn't have to be just RBSD either any Instructor that you feel has made impact on the MA/SP scene is worthy of acknowledgment.

    It doesn't have to be in order but if you think someone stands out from the crowd then lets hear it and give then some acknowledgment. We are fairly isolated Down under but with the internet age Our shores have come closer then ever before.

    One day I would like to be on that list, but that day is a fair way off yet. I'll post my list later, I don't want to corrupt the international view. (after all, I live hear. my list is probably going to reflect that of other Aussies in the industry anyway)

    over to you.

    In no particular order. I have limited my response to those I know teach RBSD type self protection. There are many many more worthy of mention. I started typing these guys out and realized I was going to be posting a very long list. so i limited to the top ten Known RBSD guys.

    I believe everyone has something to offer, and they all deserve to be on the list.

    RBSD instructors

    Clive Girdham
    Ray Floro
    Mick Nicholls
    Jim Armstrong
    Matt Jones
    Mannie de Matos
    Perry Gamsby
    Glen Swiers
    Deane lawler
    John Will

    To these people and the many more that I have not listed.

    Thankyou
