Review: CQBC August 2017: ‘HelloKitty’

CQBC 8/2017

Instructors: John and Max

3 day course

Day 1- live fire range day.  Dialed in rifles.  Then worked on facing drills, shooting and moving, and barricade drills.  In afternoon, worked on door entry and room clearance in 2 and 4 man teams.  Dry fire of course.

Day 2- issued UTM bolts and ammo.  Trained at the CQB huts.  Entire day was focused on Door entry and room clearance in 2, 3, 4 man teams using UTM on targets.  Target discrimination was reinforced.  Many many reps done.  Also had a timed competition of 2 man teams consisting of running 100 yds and then clearing entire structures with targets.  Ended day with learning to move through hallways with T and 4 way intersections in 4 man teams.

Day 3- started the day learning shotgun breaching.  Then went into UTM force on force with OPFOR in buildings.  Many reps done.  Afternoon we started working in 4 and 5 man teams against 4-5 man OPFOR.

Overall, an excellent course.  Not my first CQB course but it was hands down the most advanced course I have ever seen or heard of for civilians.  You will learn how to clear buildings in 2-4 man teams.  However, you will also realize that to be good at CQB you need to practice and practice and repeat.
