Counter Ambush Tactics

1 Day/8 Hours


This course teaches the student pistol fighting techniques and tactics within arms-reach distances
Whether you are a responsibly armed citizen or law enforcement, “ambush” style attacks are on the rise. This is because the method of attacking your prey while they are not expecting it, or when distracted, is a very effective tactic that more often results in success than a frontal assault. Yet most of the training we receive involves learning and practicing techniques to repel the frontal assault. Instead of a 180 degree approach to training, in this one-day school we learn to recognize our tactical vulnerabilities and blind spots in 360 degrees and minimize them. We will learn to decrease our threat recognition time and maximize the effectiveness of our response.

Topics Covered:

  • Decrease threat recognition time and maximize the effectiveness of their response
  • Learn and practice empty hand, defensive knife and pistol skills in an integrated counter ambush combatives system.
This course is an intermediate level course. It is not an entry level course. The student needs to know and be able to demonstrate safe gun handling, weapon system familiarity, foundational marksmanship skills, and working from a holster.
