Remember  The purpose of this training is to give the

soldier real skills which are simple and effective and can be done in daylight or complete darkness (tactile/feel) and in full battle gear.  However – If the soldier has skills learned in other areas – boxing, martial arts, wrestling, football, law enforcement etc. Do not throw away these skills – add CQC to them. 17

Remember to “See” and “Look”  Eyes up and Head moving.  Really “see” what is out there.  Least 100 yards out, not 25 or less.  MOVE YOUR HEAD!


Vigilance  Be vigilant at all times and places  Know where cover is when at a FOB or any

location  Do not assume that any location is secure  “Know” where cover is


Types of Cover Concealment Soft Cover Hard Cover

control or combat breathing  Responses to stress are automatic – Heart rate – Blood pressure – Oxygenation of blood
