Statistically, around 70% of defensive shootings happen between arms reach and 10ft. The Close-Quarters Firearms Integration Tactics program (CQ-FIT) focuses on surviving lethal force encounters within these extremely close ranges, to include firearms and edged-weapon based assaults. To increase the probability of survival at these ranges, we train a full integration of empty-hand fighting, firearms, edged and impact weaponry.
This 2-Day CQ-FIT seminar is an outdoor event at the Red Dawn Armory, and the focus will encompass movement, various shooting platforms, and exploiting angles which can apply to concealed firearms permit holders, law enforcement, executive protection and military personnel. Day 1 will be a NON-Live Fire training day to hone and refine CQ-FIT Tactics and Day 2 will be build off of Day 1 as it segways into live fire dynamic drills.
