ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts (ECQC)

The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts (ECQC) course is a two and a half day (20 hours) block of instruction which focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to building functional, combative handgun skills at zero to five feet. The course is designed to instill core concepts of seamless integration and provide the platform for aggressive problem solving during a life or death struggle. A heavy emphasis is placed upon commonality of body mechanics between skill sub-sets, which means that all combative software is reinforcing. Once the student’s skill sets are initially ingrained, the participant will be stress inoculated with force on force drills utilizing marking cartridges and protective equipment.

Topics covered include:
Day One (4 Hours)

  • Criminal Assault Paradigm
  • Unequal Initiative Events
  • Managing Unknown Contacts
  • Practical Unarmed Combat

Day Two (8 Hours)

  • Diagnostics
  • Introduction to the components of the Combative Drawstroke
  • Building the #2 position in live-fire
  • Firing throughout the horizontal line of presentation
  • Off-hand fending positions
  • Default position
  • Basic empty hand blows
  • Theory of in-fight weapon access
  • Grounded basics

Day Three (8 Hours)

  • Challenging the potential attacker
  • Preemptive weapon access
  • Multiple attackers
  • Negotiating the F.U.T.
  • ECQ Handgun retention in holster
  • ECQ handgun retention out of holster
  • Handgun recovery
  • Handgun striking

Equipment Required:

Holster, pistol, two magazines, eye & ear protection, heavy sweatshirt or soft body armor, mouthpiece and cup, 500 rounds of ammo.

To register for this special event, please contact Jim Clark of High Point Personal Security. Course cost is $400 and a deposit is required.

This class is not recommended for beginning shooters and prior documented firearms training requiring holster work or instructor approval is required. Students should be relatively fit as this is a contact class. Most of the latter half of each day will be spent utilizing marking cartridges and FIST helmets, to allow the students to gain confidence in applying their newly acquired skills against moving aggressive opponents.

  1. This class will fill up VERY quickly. Craig presents material that I believe anyone that carries a gun should be REQUIRED to study. His integrated force concepts and the methods he has codified to fight with a handgun in what he calls the FUT (F’d Up Tangle) that many fights for survival devolve into are based on the harsh reality of life and death close quarters battle.

    Read about the class, and view the videos I’ve attached, then contact me to register. You’ll be glad you did.

  2. This is the MOST appropriate and useful class out there for people who go armed. The class is concept driven, making it simple to remember. It’s great to repeat, due to the dynamics of the students.

    Get to this class, then it’s on to the VCAST (vehicle tactics) class!!!!
