Special Operations Combatives Program (SOCP)
This 2 day course introduces the fundamentals of SOCP, as well as techniques from other combat-focused disciplines designed to meet the threats of day to day civilian life. Topics covered will include basic self defense techniques, pistol takeaways, knife takeaways, EDC setups, situational awareness, mindset, and hand to hand combat introduction. While these skills and techniques are employed by Special Forces Operators, they are life-or-death practices that are integral to self defense for any civilian.
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.
