The Strategies of Low Light Engagements
The Principles and Subsequent Techniques for Prevailing in the Realm of Conflict. This is NOT a flashlight shooting techniques course! Far from it. Developed over a 20-year period of interaction with regular and Special Forces military units, federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, this groundbreaking course exposes the officer to the foundational precepts associated with armed and unarmed confrontations associated with day and night operations.

We do not focus on final outcomes per se, but address the underlying processes that ultimately determine the conclusion of any given conflict. The core principles of low light CQB and low light CQC, conflict resolution; strategy, tactics, teamwork, proper individual bio-mechanics, timing, effective communication, and leveraging available equipment are presented and tested.

Technique based approaches encouraged by the majority of traditional training methodologies are simply not sufficient. We teach operators to implement flexible, fluid, flowing and unpredictable (difficult for the adversary to read) responses in dynamic environments. The cornerstone to all reasonable action is possessing the ability to harness the full potential of the conscious and sub-conscious decision-making processes while under duress.

Officers leave this course with a practical understanding of a time tested sequential model for operating in the midst of discord. Participants are challenged mentally and physically to solve a multitude of problems utilizing an adaptive learning based philosophy. That is, participants are encouraged to experiment and take the initial concepts presented during powerful multimedia lectures and practical demonstrations and adapt them as necessary in a myriad of force-on-force drills and scenarios. These exercises are carefully analyzed utilizing infrared digital video playback. This course leads the way in Reduced Light Environments Training for Law Enforcement.
