The Combat Shillelagh Instructor’s Guild is an invitation only group made up of Certified Instructors from around the globe. In our system, there are the following levels of “rank” or certifications: Level I Green Belt, Level II Brown Belt, Level III 1st Degree Black Belt, Assistant Instructor, Certified Instructor Level and Master Level.
In order to test for Instructor or Master level certification, you have to be a Guild Member in good standing and have received a recommendation from an existing Instructor. It is expected that the Instructor Cadre maintains the yearly guild fees. An active yearly Guild Membership is also required for anyone who opens and runs an affiliate training group.
