Here is a course description
COMBAT SHOOTING &
HAND TO HAND COMBAT
One March 8th and 9th we will be teaching a seminar on the core elements of point shooting with hand and long guns as well as the simple techniques of WW2 Commando/Marine Raider hand to hand combat.
Topics to be covered include one and two handed point shooting, shooting while moving in all directions, pivot shots, angle shots, engaging multiples, rapid combat draw stroke, shooting through the draw stroke, extreme close range shooting along with a series of dynamic drills to reinforce the methods.
The long gun portion will teach various ways of fighting with the rifle/shotgun from distances of 0-7 yards---where a vast majority of long gun encounters actually occur.
Our unarmed combat will include the major blows----axe hand, chin jab, Tiger’s claw, basic kicks, elbows---along with applications such as countering common holds, some simple ground defense, weapon retention/disarming and knife offense/defense.
We will also include substation use of Airsoft so as to test the application of these skills in FOF situations.
Students should bring a handgun with 400 rounds of ammo, a semi automatic rifle in any caliber (even a .22 is OK) with 400 rounds,
Knee pads, groin protector and, if available, Airsoft gun and safety gear.
Instructors will be Matt Temkin and 7677
