Combat Mindset offers dozens of career paths to choose from, including coaches, instructors, customer service, operations… a lot of people make our promise of excellent service a reality, and the talents required often outpace the scope of the positions and titles given.

Like making a great cocktail, running a great company is reliant on a simple formula. Equal parts great staff, great service, and great personal relationships.

We believe that recruiting – and retaining – an exceptional workforce is paramount to maintaining the integrity of a premiere self defense studio. Developing the professionals who will lead our company forward to better and brighter future is our primary goal when seeking to hire a candidate.

The only thing we require is that you’re passionate, creative, driven, and respectful of the other staff. It takes zero effort to drop us a line. The talent is there. Its a matter of knowing where to identify the right candidates, providing them with the right opportunity and giving them the knowledge, experience and training to thrive and grow with our company.

That said, we are very, very picky about who joins our team – but we’ll give anybody a chance. And at Combat Mindset, you have the ability to enjoy our unique company culture, our specific vision, and our multi-disciplined approach to functional self defense and empowerment.

Advancement Opportunities

You know those guys who are always talking crap? We’re not one of them.

Life rewards the go-getters, and so do we.

Promoting from within isn’t just something we say we’ll do – it’s a promise to our employees that we deliver on. In fact, here at Combat Mindset, we utilize an in-house employee development program which includes perks like paid training, coaching, mentoring, and leadership experiences geared to increase your production, your skill set, and your contributions to the company.

Michael Saad built a global security firm by promoting from within and he brings this ideology to Combat Mindset as our founder and lead instructor.

Recognition and Incentive Programs

Backpats. Everybody loves ‘em. We don’t give ‘em out like candy, but we’ll make sure you feel rewarded for a job well-done. So we continually boost employee morale and motivation by implementing fresh and new ideas into our ever-changing individual and team reward programs.


At Combat Mindset, we offer several internship opportunities throughout the year to current college students and recent graduates to help groom and polish your business savvy, and often follow internships up with paid, full-time positions.

Internships are available on the following schedule:

  • Spring (January-April)
  • Summer (May-August)
  • Fall (September-December)

As part of our overall goal to recruit and develop outstanding talent, we at Combat Mindset work hard to provide our interns with a rewarding program and ensure them greater work experience in all aspects of everything we do. The goal is to give you opportunities, after all, to help cultivate you into a badass employable machine.

When you’re accepted as an intern in our program, the first step is that we assign you a mentor. This mentor has earned their stripes, and like a seasoned drill sergeant will whip you into fighting form in no time.

While under their wing, you’ll receive hands-on experience, have the opportunity to be a member of any number of teams, maybe even get the chance to work directly with students in our classes, workshops or self defense academy. We have a detailed curriculum put in place for interns to learn and experience in all areas of the business.

To be considered for a current position, you must complete the online application. Once you submit your application, it will be reviewed by a hiring panel and you will be contacted if you are shortlisted for further consideration.

Resumes can only be accepted through our online application at this time.
