ATA Legacy Trainer

In many martial arts styles, the assumption traditionally has been that once a student earns their Black Belt they are ready to teach other students. But the ATA does not believe that simply being able to do something well qualifies a person to teach it.

During the last 30 years, the ATA has developed an intensive Instructor Training Program to insure that all Instructors are professionally skilled teachers. Before becoming certified, Black Belts spend 2-3 years as Assistant Instructors, during which time they are required to teach at least 300 hours under the supervision of a Senior Instructor.

All Instructors are required to earn certification in CPR and Youth Protection, and recertify every three years.

As with our ATA Martial Arts program and Instructors, our KMF-AC Instructors undergo rigorous training protocols. Before becoming certified, candidates spend 2-3 years as Krav Maga Trainers. This allows them to assist or lead classes under the direction of a KMF-AC Certified Instructor.

After successful demonstration of skills as a Trainer, they are eligible to attend KMF-AC Instructor Certification. This physically and mentally demanding training is conducted by the International and/or National Director of the Krav Maga Federation-AC. It puts each attendee to the ultimate test, insuring their skills meet the high-quality standards necessary to be a KMF-AC Instructor.
