I had to ask my wife about this one, but she has never seen 教士 before. She tells me it's not a word.
Actually, 教士 is a valid term, although it may be considered to be jargon within the budo world:

http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%95%99%E5%A3%AB

The first few sentences from the above article states (my quick, loose translation) that the term 教士 is a title awarded by the Dai Nihon Butokukai with its rank just below that of 範士 (hanshi) and just above 錬士 (renshi).

Hope that helps,
