Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I and II (ECQC I-II)

February 27, 28, March 1, 2009 in Phoenix, AZ

The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I & II (ECQC 1&2) course is a 20 hour
block of instruction which focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to
building functional, combative handgun skills at zero to five feet. The course is
designed to instill core concepts of seamless integration and provide the platform
for aggressive problem solving during a life or death struggle. A heavy emphasis
is placed upon commonality of body mechanics between skill sub-sets, which
means that all combative software is reinforcing. Once the student’s skill sets are
initially ingrained, the participant will be stress inoculated with force on force drills
utilizing man-marking cartridges and protective equipment.

Topics covered include:

Block One
• Diagnostics
• Introduction to the components of the Combative Drawstroke
• Building the pectoral index in live-fire
• Firing throughout the horizontal line of presentation
• Off-hand fending positions
• Default position
• Basic empty hand blows
• Theory of in-fight weapon access
• Grounded basics

Block Two
• Challenging the potential attacker
• Preemptive weapon access
• Muzzle aversion within draw-stroke
• Negotiating the F.U.T.
• ECQ Handgun retention in holster
• ECQ handgun retention out of holster
• Handgun recovery
• Handgun striking

Equipment Required
Two magazines
Eye & ear protection
Heavy sweatshirt or soft body armor
Mouthpiece and cup
500 rounds of ammunition


Please sign-up via phone 602-625-2523 or email at

Course cost is $400 (payable by credit card or cash)

This class is not recommended for beginning shooters. Students should be relatively fit as this is a contact class. Most of the latter half of each day will be spent utilizing man marking cartridges and FIST helmets, to allow the students to gain confidence in applying their newly acquired skills against moving aggressive opponents.
