Close Quarters Combat
Close quarters combat. It’s a term that conjures up images of solders on the war-torn battlefields of Afghanistan or fighting hand to hand in the streets of Baghdad. But close quarters combat is something everyone needs to know. It is, at its simplest, fighting with your hands, your feet, your knees, your elbows, even your teeth, to survive a real-life street altercation. It is fighting to preserve your own life. It is fighting to protect your loved ones.
You may think, “ I don’t want to be close enough to someone to engage in hand-to-hand combat with them.” You might be an armed citizen with a CCW (Carry Concealed Weapon) permit, and you may think that’s all you need. But in this politically correct world of gun-free zones and increasingly strict gun control laws, there will be lots of times you can’t and won’t have a gun with you. When that happens, you need a plan. You need training. You need the skills, the tactics, the techniques it takes to fight back and win against a predator who wants to take what you have or hurt those you love.
That is close quarters combat. Whether against a bigger, stronger opponent, or against multiple opponents, you need to know the physical methods, the mindset, and the mechanics of fighting back against a violent attacker even when you are at a disadvantage. You are the good guy. You are the citizen defender. You have a lot to lose. You can’t afford not to learn close quarters combat, starting right now.
