CLOSE QUARTER COMBAT TRANSITIONSTactics, Techniques and Procedures that teach empty hand to weapon and weapon to empty hand skills in close quarter combat
This is a one-day ‘hands-on’ course that teaches the law enforcement officer how to confidently integrate your hand-to-hand and weapon skills in extreme close quarter engagements. You will learn when a gun response is tactically realistic and how to deploy your weapon under duress at extreme close quarters to engage an assailant.
The course goes in-depth to teach flow dynamics, disruption principles, core combatives and weapon skills necessary to transition from unarmed to handgun and knife when circumstances dictate to affect arrest, neutralize threats and mitigate risk to the officer and potential civilian casualties.
Close Quarter Combat Transitions is an immediate precision technology that allows the operator to transition in close quarter combat and extreme close quarter combat from unarmed to weapon system and from weapon system to empty hand state to engage conflict.
Emphasis is placed upon teaching the officer, agent or operator how to create time, distance and opportunity to deploy their weapon or retain their weapon and to maintain situational awareness in multiple threat situations.
Participants will discover the limitations of each tool and learn to adapt through congruent combat technology to solve problems, deal with violence and move through a CQC environment employing any level of force necessary.
