In 2005 it was already a little sensation, when Florian Lahner (...) was awarded the title ”Tactical Instructor of the year“ in the professional division as the first European ever. Some weeks ago, it happened again, as Lahner had the honour of being recognised as ”Tactical Instructor of the Year - CQC Tactics and training“ for the second time. The Hall of Fame Award can be seen as the ”Oscar“ of the Martial Arts and Combat Arts scene.
(caliber magazine, 2006)
”Florian Lahner, born in 1974, is one of the leading tactical instructors in Europe (...) In fact he is one of the very few non-government instructors teaching frequently to professionals as a main job.”
