Close Quarters For Responible Citizens (CQB/CQC)

In-Person Instruction Available at The Florida Deep Woods Ranch Training Facility


Close Quarters For Responible Citizens (CQB/CQC)

It seems that everyone wants to learn Close Quarters Battle (CQB) because of movies, Instagram, etc. The truth is, that fighting an armed opponent in close quarters is extremely dangerous. That is why it’s vital that you don’t do CQB for the first time when you are in a real fight.

Understanding and applying some basic CQB fundamentals can drastically improve your odds. Further, having another person, or even a small team with you who also understand those fundamentals, can exponentially increase the chances of success.

This 2-day course will teach you the same fundamentals taught to special forces operators, including both deliberate and dynamic CQB techniques.

Responsible citizens and armed professionals that want to improve their survivability in a home invasion or active killer scenario should take this class.


This class involves working with others in a tight environment. Initially, everything will be done using dryfire with safe weapons. For the safety of the group during the live fire portion, students that cannot safely demonstrate their competency may be required to sit out, or to participate with a clear and safe gun.
