An advanced 1-day course for experienced shooters and armed professionals. This course will focus on engagements inside of "double-arm distance." This course features a significant amount of retention work, unorthodox shooting positions, introduction to some Combat Focus shooting concepts and a variety of less-lethal options. During this course, students will utilize impact reduction equipment and training rounds to engage one another and role-players with firearms while grappling and during various gun-grab or ambush scenarios.
The core components of this course are a key part of the curriculum for military special operations personnel who train with I.C.E. in the Close Quarters Counter Ambush program.
This is an intense course meant for armed professionals and individuals with advanced weapons handling skills and reasonable levels of physical fitness. Therefore, students must have prior training experience with I.C.E. staff and approval to register for this course. Arrangements can be made for private instruction the day before the course starts to accommodate this requirement. Please speak with a staff instructor for more details or to discuss exceptions.
