Principles of Control
Fighting and shooting are rarely done at the same time in trainings, yet in combat they are happening at the same time.
They say "life and death is in the gaps", this course fills those gaps. Teaching operators how to combine combative skills with weapon manipulation and integration with fast and accurate shooting. These skills are tested by time and in force on force scenarios. Scenarios can be done in simulation, paint marking rounds or live fire.
We can duplicate situations and scenarios others have previously encountered, but not the future. Therefore, this course is designed to help operators think.
