C&S Self Defense Association can trace its roots back from White Cobra Grandmaster Peter M. Rose through National Karate Association Grandmaster S.A. Brock, Shudokan Karate Grandmaster Toshio Hanaue, Grandmaster Kanken Toyama, Grandmaster Yatsutsune Itosu, Shuri-te Grandmaster Sokon Matsumura, Grandmaster Tode Sakugawa, Grandmaster Kusanku, to the Shaolin Temple.
C&S Self Defense Association was formed in 1992 for the direct benefit of Grandmaster Rose's direct Disciples who believed in Grandmaster's vision of the Art and all of life. Our Association, our family, is built upon the strength of character in its members.
This is not something that happens overnight. It is a process that is worked on over a period of time, but this is time well spent. The goal of the Association is to provide a solid base for the members to strive for achievement in personal self defense and in personal self fullfillment.
C&S Self Defense Association membership is limited to those who train directly under a Certified Black Belt in our Association, and all Programs are headed only by Black Belts who are active members of the Association. All C&S Programs are recertified each year by the Association. Certificates attesting to the current years status are available for review.
The goal of the Association is to provide a solid base for the members to strive for achievement in different areas of personal development as Martial Artists. We view these areas, in fact, as our responsibility as martial Artists, and they form the very cornerstone of Grandmaster Rose's teaching.
