Urban Movement (August 3-5, 2018)

from 250.00

In any environment, mindset is the difference between predator and prey.This class addresses the most basic concept of survival, movement, from an urban perspective. These skills were developed and tested in operations against some of the largest and most brutal criminal organizations in the world. Techniques of this kind are measured only by effectiveness in real world application. Due to the nature of operations, support and supply was often basic, if available at all. This developed a unique minimalistic and improvisational approach to any problem. The average person similarly has little access to high tech purpose built tools, making the understanding of repurposed materials and basic urban survival concepts essential. 



This class is purpose driven to develop a strong tactical base from the foundation of movement. Information is approached from an evidence and experience based perspective, starting with an assessment of what is carried by individuals and how those tools are worn and used. The need for discretion and control of appearance will be discussed as a crucial aspect of movement. Once some basic concepts of urban movement are understood some universally useful skills will be covered. Scavenging urban scrap and developing highly effective improvised tools, covert entry vs breaking and entering, and pattern recognition are some of the main concepts which will round out your understanding of urban environments.

The last element of the urban environment is the other people around. We will explore criminal activity with an in-depth deconstruction of predatory psychology. This will include a discussion of common criminal methodologies and patterns. Teamwork is a crucial aspect of survival. In support of that concept, a broad range covert and austere communication procedures will be covered. A communication skill set will provide you with the ability to communicate information in any situation. Having a solid understanding of your personal role, the variables of the environment and the human behavior concepts will greatly increase your individual survival potential.
