In-Extremis Knife, Managing Unknown Contacts & Practical Unarmed Combat (Friday evening)
The ShivWorks In-Extremis Knife course is a 4 hour block of instruction which focuses on a non-stylized method that will work with any edged weapon or any improvised weapon as well. The course places the knife or improvised implement within the usage context of realistic criminal assault and provides a simple decision making process for access and application. A heavy emphasis is placed upon disparate confrontations where the defender lacks proportional armament and equal initiative. Pre-fight and In-fight tactics to dissuade, break and recover from violent, criminal assault are practically bridged into tool access and the specifics of edged weapon application.

. Awareness and distraction
. Challenging the potential attacker

Extreme Close Quarters Concepts (Saturday & Sunday)
Course Description: The ShivWorks Extreme Close Quarter Concepts (ECQC) course is a two day 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 Simunitions and protective equipment.
• 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
• Challenging the potential attacker
• Preemptive weapon access
• Muzzle aversion within draw-stroke
• Negotiating the F.U.T.
• ECQ Handgun retention in holster
• ECQ handgun retention out of holster
• Handgun recovery
• Handgun striking
Prerequisites: This class is not recommended for beginning shooters and prior documented training 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 Simmunition marking cartridges and FIST helmets, to allow the students to gain confidence in applying their newly acquired skills against moving aggressive opponents.
• Holster, belt and magazine holder
• Pistol of .38 or greater,
• Two magazines or speed loaders,
• Eye & ear protection,
• Long pants and a heavy sweatshirt or soft body armor,
• Mouthpiece and cup,
• 500 rounds of ammo.

If you are truly serious about improving your fighting skills, train with this man. His training entails far more than shooting.
Not only does he have the experience and credentials, he can teach.
Southnarc is on the top of my short list.
Great instructor with a great curriculum and a really nice guy.
Roger Phillips Owner of Fight Focused Concepts
I'd love to attend one of his courses but - have enjoyed reading some of his material.
The one thing he really switched me onto a ways back, thru a post of his ....... was concerning the ease with which people become focussed on some operation - such as cell phone use etc. I forget right now his term for it but - it made me think, just how often folks can be vulnerable by being so absorbed in something simple, they fail to maintain an awareness of what is around them.
That can include us too - as we pause to concentrate on something. Maybe he will remind me of his definition - it is well worth a reminder to all.
Ah - got it - ''task fixation" (I think) ... there!
