All of the gathered C&S Self Defense Association Grandmasters, Masters, and Disciples with Nidan Art and Dave Shuler's students at the Effingham Lake Land College location gym prior to the senior group leaving for the 04-19-2007 All Disciple Retreat In Illinois.

C&S Self Defense Association was formed in 1992 for the benefit of Grandmaster Peter 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.

09/27/15: Eleanne Solorzano Promoted to Certified 1st Degree Black Belt
I am pleased to announce the promotion of Eleanne Solorzano of the Rose School of Karate to the rank of Certified 1st Degree Black Belt. Over the last 5 years, Shodan Solorzano has shown the utmost dedication and attention to her training. As a result, her performance under duress was outstanding. It was a tough few days, with little sleep for both of us, but she did excellent in all areas of the exam.

She will now move forward to new and challenging material that will guide her deeper into the study of our art, sharpening her technical skills and honing her mind to the philosophical truths of all of the Nature about us.

Congratulations, Shodan Solorzano, and I'll see you on deck soon!
