Extreme Close Quarter Concepts (ECQC) with Craig Douglas
Duration: 20 hours
Course Fee: $550

A4 is pleased to host Craig Douglas of ShivWorks for his 2.5-day, 20 hr, Extreme Close Quarter Concepts (ECQC) course!

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.
