Kinetic Fighting–Integrated Combat Instructors’ Course

Regular price $200.00 Sale

Complete your KEF–IC instructor training, or upskill and advance your qualifications, alongside instructors of the Australian Army Combatives Program (ACP)…

Dates: 12–13 June 2021

The 2021 Mid-year Kinetic Fighting–Integrated Combat Instructors’ Course enables KEF–IC instructors-in-training to practise with Australian soldiers and teach others over two full days.  

For newly qualifying instructors, the cost of the course covers a 12-month teaching license, two KEF–IC Instructor T-shirts and 10 free course books (normally $55 each) for your future students. Licensed instructors also receive free access to train on any KEF–IC course that they have previously completed, for the next 12 months.

Every course booking also includes a seat at the KEF Awards Dinner on the Saturday night, with three-course meal and entertainment (priced at $200 for those without a course ticket, and for partners). Basic, Army-style accommodation at the KEF HQ is also included, but not compulsory.


At the High Fidelity Training Centre, Brisbane (the home of Kinetic Fighting, inside Screen Queensland Studios), 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) and Army Combatives Program (ACP) instructors. 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. 

Already qualified instructors who attend will be tested (and upgraded upon passing) to teach the next module in the syllabus above their current teaching qualification.

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 current Sergeant Major of the Combatives Centre, WO2 Aaron Johnston, and KEF–IC/ACP Combatives Master Trainer Geordie Lavers-McBain.


If you have prior teaching experience and have completed and refreshed the KEF–IC Tan Level modules Alpha and Bravo, you may be ready to complete certification on the course for ‘Interim Instructor’ status (CONTACT US to discuss your eligibility). This will allow you to teach ‘Self-Protection Essentials – Alpha’. The next course in November/December then offers an opportunity to be tested and qualified to teach further modules, at no extra cost. 

If you have already completed all five Tan Level modules required to test for Grey Level (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta and Echo), you can undertake your

Grey Belt qualification test on this course, then go through the instructor qualification process for both the Alpha and Bravo modules. Those who qualify will then have the opportunity to upgrade to teach further modules at the next course in November/December (at no extra cost).

This rare opportunity for critical skill-enhancement and coaching development at ACP/KEF–IC headquarters also offers an opportunity to network with fellow instructors, and to partake in unique aspects of Australian military culture. But it is limited to 20 people, so don’t miss out!

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

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