With over 5,000 instructors certified since 1994, the time has come for a Level 2 Instructor Certification Course for military and law enforcement professionals. The first-ever GST Level 2 course will take place from February 18-22, 2013 at the Gracie Academy in Torrance, California. Here are some of the topics that will be covered during the Level 2 GST instructor course:

  • Close Quarters Combat (Standing & Ground)

  • Two-Man Takedown/ Handcuffing Procedure

  • Edged Weapon Defense (Standing & Ground)

  • Advanced Weapon Retention (Standing & Ground)

  • Rear Attack Defenses (Standing)

  • Advanced Gracie Teaching Methodologies

In order to participate in the Level 2 course, participants are required to have completed the standard GST course (Level 1) within the two years prior to their Level 2 course participation date. Not only will Level 2 course completion certify participants as Level 2 GST instructors, but it will also serve as their Level 1 re-certification since all Level 1 techniques and teaching methodologies will be reviewed throughout the week in addition to all the new material.
