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.
P.S. how did you hear of them.

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

hey everyone just in case you didn't know Australia is the large land mass in the southern hemisphere.

Surely You have heard of someone worth mentioning, like I said it doesn't have to be RBSD.

The only ones that I've experienced are Mick Nicholls, Clive Girdham and Manny De Matos.

I'd put Mick and Clive on top of any list.

The others that interest me are Deane Lawler, Ray Floro and Jim Armstrong, but I've not had the honour. Yet!

RBSD instructors

Clive Girdham

Hello Drew.

Reality Based Scenario training.
It is on you tube.
Considering I live in the UK I couldnt train with the guy. I dont realy care to much for You Tube demos but it would be the only way I could look at training some one had to offer.
To be blunt if what is shown on that demonstration is what he offers then I wouldnt be buying.

Each to their own though.

Good instructor.

Must be in demand if he is teaching in the States.

József Kreul fought Ali and won the WBF heavyweight championship.

He lived in Australia.

Apart from him, the thai boxer John Wayne and drought I would say Rolf Harris is one of the best known products of Australia?
