Intro to SOCP (Special Operations Combatives Program)

With a martial arts back ground for many years, and many classes in firearms as well, this class was an amazing way to combine both. The techniques were both simple and very effective, and the instructor was very knowledgeable, and willing to answer any question you have. You learn how to be more confidant in how to maneuver in "bad breath" distance, and how you can fight in that space. It was also good test of reliability of gear, and introduction to new equipment as well. Would recommend this class to anyone who is serious in learning to defend themselves from a very close range.
