As you continue your training in the martial art of riflecraft, it is time to learn the skills, knowledge, and tactics of combat inside your house, commercial buildings, around cars and in other urban spaces. In other words, this class will teach you how to move, fight, and problem solve where you are most likely to encounter conflict, at home, at work, on the road, or at the store. We will look at two competing theories of close quarter battle technique, and compare how military, police, and private citizens will use the same concepts in different ways to best suit their needs.
This class is offered three times per year.
