PRINCIPLES of TRAINING of Tactical Firearms for Bodyguard
Survival Mindset achieved through Practical Exercise

With decades of various Combat training with Private Armed Security, Police and Army SF we came to conclusions :

Most of Tactical Firearms courses (programs) are typical Basic Army Shooting courses with some funny stuff from Sport Practical Shooting drills and fancy show of various combat uniforms and gear.

Most of Tactical Firearms courses (programs) are built for big Teams with proper Logistic and Power Support.

Our program is Designed for Small Bodyguard (CPO) Groups (1-5 operatives) operating in Hostile Environment without any logistic and Power Support.

Our concept - Task Orientated Adaptation and Improvisation to Perform Effectively and Safely through a Real Fire-Fight.

PRINCIPLES of TRAINING - with focus on:

1. 360 degree workout in Crowd;

2.Prevention of Provocations;

3.CQB/CQC link (switching between Armed Combat and Empty Hands Combat);

4. Making right decisions: Sorting problems out instead of making troubles;

5. MUST be an optimal ratio between Reality Training and Safety;

6. Survival Mindset achieved through Practical Exercises (not just theory);

7. How to Perform Effectively and Safely through a Real Fire-Fight;

8. Achieve Combat Mindset and Train to Respond to Real Threat;

9. Rules of Engagement - Level of force is determined by the assailant!

CONCEPT of Tactical Firearms for Bodyguards

1. Difference between the Tactics of Getting in Different Shooting Positions in Hostile Environment and Shooting Tactics (Principles of Shooting).

2. VITAL: Importance of switching between Close Quarter Empty Hand Combat (CQC) and Armed Close Quarter Combat (CQB);

3. Importance of : Stress Management and Making Right Decisions, Avoiding Unnecessary Casualties;

4. Coordination of Teamwork (Teamwork and Communication) and 360 degree workout in Crowd;

5. Crowd Control: Conflict Management, Blending with Crowd, Prevention of Provocations;

Documents required for this course:

1. CV;

2. Proof of Address;

3. Copy of Driving License;

4. CRB.

Why to Train with us? (Why we created our courses):

We took part in various courses. In some of them-we found how to do things right,in some-what not to do. But that didn't meet our expectations HOW TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND DO IT RIGHT. So we created our courses. Courses for us.

What is the difference between courses of our company and other training companies?

You Fight like you Train. We Train to Adapt to Uncertainties and Improvise to be able to Execute Tasks and Survive.

Expected Situation Determines Preparation.

Our Vision:

Be Clear and Do it Simple.

Our goal is not to criticize others but to find and share good practices (experience, skills and knowledge) and eliminate mistakes (and various nonsense) to improve chances to Survive in Real Combat (both Empty Hands and Armed).

Course is very intensive:

1. We built this course for us. Instructors also participate in course( but with additional instructors tasks and assessments). Basic course for students is also a refreshment course for instructors.
2. Every course is unique- we adjust course programs to experience of our students and push them to their new maximum every day;
3. Final daily Result are Team related - we count result by achievement of the weakest member of The Team!

So if you are more experienced and finished your task quicker - help to others.

If you are less experienced and have difficulties to reach goals- use more efforts that to avoid being the weakest link.

Despite that- Goals are maximum for everyone from beginning of course.

You have to read theory before course! (that's why you are connected to internal web project manager of CP course Basecamp- with manuals and other useful info). You have to do preparations to every task forehead - as it always happens in real life!


All sleep, eat, train and have rest together(as it always happens in real life!):

from 2 lads in 1 room with comfort; to - all are sleeping in sleeping bags ( instructors too) in any premises.

Meals(as it always happens in real life!):
from standard 2 meals per day in Restaurant ( Cafe)
to anyway it goes (different training places (open-close shooting ranges) and environment (weather conditions) , uncertain timings).You have to organize meals for yourself and your Team. If you wont do it properly you will be Hungry.

No Fancy Uniforms!

all training and drills goes with uniform adequate to drill specific or ( in most of cases) casual clothing.
No problem to dress up by any Dress Code if you know how to Cover Sector and Feel Comfortable in Crowd. Fancy Uniform wont sort it out!

No Fancy Cars!

If you don't know how to drive properly Fancy Cars wont fix it!

If don't understand the small details of embus/debus (how and when to open (close) doors, timings, sectors) and if you don't drive properly with Team (specifics of driving of different cars in Convoy) - you are only group of people with cool cars! As it often happens in real life!
