After in-depth consideration, it is with great sadness that I must announce (effective immediately) my decision to no longer continue on as a Sub-Contract Instructor, into 2014 with Suarez International (SI). Unfortunately, family obligations make it impossible for me to fulfill the requirements of the position. I was honored when I was asked to bring my Point Shooting Progressions courses to SI and teach them under the SI banner. With these courses no longer being offered by SI in 2014, I find myself regrettably forced to deal with this extremely tough dilemma.
Along the way I have met many outstanding people and have made a good number of close friends. This is something that means the world to me. But as unfortunate as it is, the concept of “God, Family, and Tribe” leaves me no option but to do what I have to do to fulfill my commitment to God and to provide for my family to the very best of my ability. That commitment would not be possible if I were to just abandon my ongoing study of seven years of extensive work inside of my specialty.
I want to take the time to express my gratitude for the opportunities that you and SI have given me. I will always look back on my time with SI with great pride in our accomplishments and with fond memories. I wish you all great success in all of your future endeavors.
Respectfully, Roger Phillips
