SFC Combat Instructors – International

Scientific Fighting Congress (SFC), International Force Necessary Instructors

People listed on our instructor pages are active certified instructors. There are people not on the list that have attained various ranks to include Black Belt levels ranks in the last 20 years, but for whatever private or professional reasons, they are not recently active within this organization. They still possess these rankings, they are just not listed here on the active-duty pages. Hock is constantly improving and honing the material, as well as checking on the instructors and their progress. If he doesn't see them for a long period? They fall off the active-duty list. If you're a past instructor interested in updating your certification so you'll once again appear on the list, attend a seminar or contact Hock for details on how you can become active again.
