How to become an ADAC teacher

You want to become a teacher of STREET DEFENCE ? You will find here all the steps to follow to acquire the ADAC teaching degree.

To become an ADAC teacher, as in all disciplines, a technical level of the chosen specialty must be validated. (Street boxing, Street fighting, Street weapons or Amazon training).
For Street Boxing which is our basis, there are three technical levels: Basic, Middle and Advanced. For Street fighting and Street weapons, which are complementary, there are only two levels: Basic and Middle.

A Middle level has to be reached to register for ADAC monitor's training, regardless of your starting level. This ensures that the future teacher has total technique and teaching skills control.
This allows us to focus on the expertise of our teachers who must be aware of their responsibility when teaching a self-defence class.
ADAC continually supports its teaching staff by providing advice, technical and educational documents. 

Each level requires at least 30 hours practice :

How to become an ADAC trainer

Once the Middle level has been reached, one has to pass through a trainer's course (i.e. the core curriculum of all our disciplines). Certificate of no criminal record N° 3 is a precondition.
Once you pass the test, you will be Street Boxing ADAC trainer.
When you reach Street Fighting or Street Weapon Middle level, you will become, de facto, ADAC trainer in this discipline. No need to repeat the core curriculum examination.
