I noticed that a lot of the students look kinda buff.

Update:
Just came back
This thing is hard-as-nails.
2.5 day course in South Carolina, started friday nite.
All attendees were high testosterone types and the vast majority quite fit.

In its own way physically harder than say Max Velocity which in itself is more physical than most others.

Saturday nite for example after an 11 hour day of constant drills and frequent Thunderdome style fights, some of us just laid flat in our beds breahintg heavy w/o even the strenght to raise oneself against the cushion to watch TV.
I was worried that I might be getting too old for this but I got through w/o injuries. (not counting cuts/bruises/welts/black spots)

More detailed AAR later.

Sounds exhilarating and quite painful at the same time.

I know it's an old post but out of curiousity....

So did you learn some of the tactical maneuvers to disarm a subject??? There is alot of scenario training online for FREE. It gives a senario. You pause it and think how you'd handle it, or what you'd do. Then you continue and they show you what and how you should have handled it. It's great training because it plants these thoughts in your head. In the event you ever get in a similar scenario in real life, then you have an idea of how to react or not react. Reason I ask is because many times in close quarters, it's best that you DO NOT pull your weapon because by the time you've pulled yours, you're dead. In many close quareter scenarios it's best to strip the bad guy of his gun and use it on him and/or pulls yours after you've stripped his and fire yours.

Yes we spent a lot of time on the practical applications.
Most of our "fights" were attempts to disarm the other guy or prevent ourselves from being disarmed.

The fight would usually end by one guy getting control of the guy and ending the fight by shooting the other at point blank range with sim-munitions (ouch!)

And when the guy is too close.. yes he can close with you faster than you can pull your gun and shoot him..and you will have to fight off of you him with fisticuffs in order to be able to pull your gun.

Since no one wants to be shot with simuntions these were some hard fought drills.

Here's the other deal about your training. While training, it's set up and you're expecting the guy to be trying to take it from you. In a real life situation, that thug is normally just as scared as you are and he's wanting to get away quick. YOU, as the target or victim, having been trained, practiced the scenario in your mind and physically, you have the advantage without doubt, because that thug is not even considering you disarming him. He's expecting you to be a cowardly pussy and not put up a fight whatsoever.

The only part I don't like about this video is it ends with hold him at gunpoint til Police get there. NOPE, it's pull the trigger 2 chest 1 head and then call the Police.
