SouthNarc will be back in Colorado Oct 1-3 for Practical Unarmed Combatives & ECQC.
From the Shivworks site:
Practical Unarmed Combat
Core Concepts Module
The ShivWorks Practical Unarmed Combat core concepts module is a 4
hour fundamental block of instruction that introduces the student to the
parameters and context of criminal assault. The student will learn how criminals
actually assault citizens in the real world and will initially focus on strategies and
tactics for challenging and preempting the potential assailant. The instruction will
then shift to immediate action procedures for spontaneous assault and how to
regain initiative with non-stylized basic tools.
Curriculum and topics covered:
Parameters and objectives of criminal assault
Awareness and task fixation
Kinesic and verbal challenge strategies for the potential assailant
Recognizing pre-assault cues
Hard focus scan procedures
Basic blows and regaining initiative
Equipment required for the class is a cup and mouthpiece. Course cost is $100.00
Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I and II (ECQC I-II)
The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts I & II (ECQC 1&2) course is a 20 hour 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 students skill sets are
initially ingrained, the participant will be stress inoculated with force on force drills
utilizing man-marking cartridges and protective equipment.
Topics covered include:
Introduction to the components of the Combative Drawstroke
Building the pectoral index in live-fire
Firing throughout the horizontal line of presentation
Off-hand fending positions
Basic empty hand blows
Theory of in-fight weapon access
Challenging the potential attacker
Preemptive weapon access
Muzzle aversion within draw-stroke
Negotiating the F.U.T.
ECQ Handgun retention in holster
ECQ handgun retention out of holster
Holster, pistol, two magazines, eye & ear protection, heavy sweatshirt or soft
body armor, mouthpiece and cup, 500 rounds of ammo.
Course cost is $400.
This class is not recommended for beginning
shooters and prior documented training or instructor approval is required.
Students should be relatively fit as this is a contact class. Most of the latter half
of each day will be spent utilizing man marking cartridges and FIST
helmets, to allow the students to gain confidence in applying their newly acquired
skills against moving aggressive opponents.

It looks like this class is going to fill on us so if you're on the fence now would be the time to send in your registration & deposit. If you want to register over the phone I can do that. If you get my voicemail leave me a message & I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
This is a class that everyone should take at least once & if you can only take one class per year, in my opinion, this should be that class.
Guys, we have one, maybe 2 slots left. We'll start up a wait list for ECQC when it fills on a first come first served basis.
There is still plenty of room in PUC so if you're looking for a taste, or know someone who is kind of on the fence about their own well being PUC would be a great class to bring thm to.
I'm really looking forward to this class & meeting all the new folks that are coming.
Keep your eyes peeled for another SouthNarc in Colorado training opportunity.
