Given the rising frequency of deadly attacks and terrorist incidents, it is not unlikely that security professionals and ordinary citizens will find themselves in situations where they need to defend themselves with the help of a partner. It can be very dangerous for two people to attempt to fight together as a team if they are not trained to do so and if they have not practiced and rehearsed beforehand.

  1. This module builds very well on the knowledge already gained from the 1 man CQB module. As I worked through each section and did the corresponding quizzes I did not experience any issues with functionality. One area that might be beneficial is to add a certificate earned at the completion of the course and the successful passing of the comprehensive test.

  2. This information does flow with the Single Person Close Quarters Battle. I believe these techniques work. I’d emphasize getting out of the “fatal Funnel.” I’ve added two comments with exterior movement in regards to cross firing any adversary to avoid a 90 degree angle confrontation and being exposed to “multiple” adversaries. Instead, remain behind your frontal cover and scan 45 degrees in the direction of your partner. He does the same. You are both covering the zones in front of each others cover. This works very well with being across the street from one another. Ex: The first operator moves to a near side position behind cover to cover the alleyway or street. However, the more you expose yourself around the corner to cover the street towards the 90 degree angle, the more you are exposed to fire from across the opposite side of the street down the alleyway. Once your partner moves across the street, he can cover the side of the alleyway in front of your position once he is set in position. This was a situation that came up in Iraq while we were deployed.
