Dynamic Movement – Carbine


Saturday, Jan 11 2020 – 0830 – 1700

For intermediate or advanced level defensive shooters

we will teach you how you can expect your assailant to move, and how you can move, so you live long enough to take the fight back to him.

  • Deflecting and defeating contact (edged / impact) weapons at close range
  • Trading space for time
  • Off-lining and controlling knives and guns when you have no space to trade
  • Using timing to defeat impact weapons 
  • Rearward obliques (establishing homeostasis of distance in a running fight against edged weapons, starting at medium range, to take advantage of your pistol’s standoff)
  • Changes of direction combined with Center Axis Relock when chased
  • Forward obliques with dynamic changes of direction to counter traverse
  • Progressively accurate marksmanship

For intermediate or advanced level carbine shooters

We will move QUICKLY off the line of attack. The first half of the day will be force-on-force exercises and demonstrations against living opponents, using safety technologies such as Airsoft, barrel inserts, and lasers.  The afternoon will be live-fire exercises reinforcing the skills you learned in the morning.

Prerequisites: You need not have trained with Heloderm or Warlizard before, but THIS IS NOT AN INTRODUCTION TO SHOOTING CLASS. Bring basic safety, handling, and marksmanship skills with you. If you are not sure if your skills are up to the level required, please contact us. We may be able to GET your skills up to the required level before this course.

Required equipment for live-fire portion:

  • A carbine
  • 250 rounds of standard practice ammunition
  • A sling
  • Spare magazines, and someplace to keep them on your person
  • Clothing appropriate for tactical movement
  • Eye and ear protection (preferably earplugs AND electronic earmuffs)
  • Gloves, knee pads, and other protective equipment as you deem appropriate 
  • Hat, sunscreen, hydration, snacks

Required equipment for force-on-force:

  • An Airsoft rifle – Preferably a gas-operated, semi-automatic Airsoft pistol. As much as possible, it should replicate your go-to pistol. We have a few on hand.
  • Airsoft pellets, green gas, and silicone-based lubricant for your Airsoft rifle

MANDATORY safety gear:

  • Wrap-around face and head protection
    • Masks that only protect your face are problematic, because in DYNAMIC movement, the assailant may be to different angles than straight in front of you
  • Neck protection
  • Groin protection
  • CLOSE FITTING gloves that won’t interfere with using an airsoft rifle

You may choose to bring other protective gear, such as a long-sleeved shirt, but some gear in excess of that stated above may be counterproductive, for reasons we will explain in class.
Heloderm will provide rubber knives, foam pipe wrenches, and other training aids necessary for contact weapon drills.

Location:  We will give you directions to the training facility after you register for the course.
