Extreme Close Quarter Concepts:

The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts (ECQC) course is a two and a half day (20 hours) 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 marking cartridges and protective equipment.


Topics covered include:

Day One (4 hours):
- Criminal Assault Paradigm
- Unequal Initiative Events
- Managing Unknown Contacts
- Practical Unarmed Combat

Day Two (8 hours):
- Introduction to the components of the Combative Drawstroke
- Building the #2 position 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

Day Three (8 hours):
- Challenging the potential attacker
- Preemptive weapon access
- Multiple attackers
- Negotiating the F.U.T.
- ECQ Handgun retention in holster
- ECQ handgun retention out of holster
- Handgun recovery
- Handgun striking

Weapon & Gear Class Requirements:
- Reliable handgun
- Minimum two (2) magazines
- Quality holster and magazine pouches.
- 300 rounds of ammunition
- Heavy sweatshirt or soft body armor
- Mouthpiece and cup
- Seasonal weather gear

Any older (40-50s) members want to take this class and walk away without a limp at the end of the day? I'm very interested but admittedly getting old and out of shape. Would like to learn the materials without slipping a disc lol. I have it on good authority that this class is a must and has been attended by people in their 20s to 70s. Let me know if anyone is interested. I definitely am but know my limits.

For those of you concerned over your physical condition or lack a pistol permit, you should see if you can attend the 1st 4 hour block of instruction. This part of the course, managing unknown contacts along with the criminal assault paradigm, can save your ass before you need a tool to solve the problem. Seriously.

Not sure if that is an option, but it is one you should strongly consider attempting.

This class is, without a doubt, the best training class I have ever attended. It was also the most physically and mentally intense. Yes, most folks will leave it with a few bumps and bruises. Fry does the training community a HUGE service by bringing Southnarc in.

Sorry it took so long for me to see this. Yes, you can attend the Friday MUC/PUC 4 hour module as a stand alone from the two day ECQC class (SAT/SUN). Contact me for details.

Thanks,
Chris
