Chris started training in 1988, earned his Instructor certification in 1990, and became a Master in 1996. Since 1990, he has trained thousands of people around the world, produced a multitude of video products, and written three books and hundreds of articles and essays on practical violence. He enjoys working at both ends of the training spectrum — giving equal effort to the education of Master Instructors and absolute beginners alike. He’s only as good as the last group he trained, however, so his resume goes in the shredder at the beginning of every new session.
