About CQB

Sheepdog CQB is an exclusive course being offered for the first time. This specialized course was developed to give you solid fundamental knowledge of Home Defense.

We’ve taken our expertise of Special Operations Close Quarters Battle and Physical Security and streamlined it for max impact to teaching you how to fight, survive, and win inside of a structure, be it your home or office.

What You’ll Learn

Part 1: Prevention and Planning
  • Castles had moats to keep intruders out; your house likely doesn’t. We’ll teach you the best safeguards to make your home a hard target (read more tips on our blog) < Link to How to Make Your Home A Hard Target
  • There are hundreds of security system options with dozens of features. We’ll cover the top picks and why they work.
  • “Location, location, location” isn’t just a phrase for real estate. Floorplans, accessibility of weapons, and your surroundings are all crucial to a plan that sets you up to defend and protect. We’ll get your safety plan optimized.
Part 2: Secure and Fight Back
  • If you think you’ve had a security breach, instinct says to go check it out. We’ll teach you the best ways to clear the area without putting you – or your family – in a vulnerable position.
  • Fighting off an intruder, especially in tight, dark hallways and stairways, has its challenges. We’ll train in low-light conditions, grapple in confined spaces, practice compressed shooting techniques, and highlight best practices to beat the bad guy.
  • Practice makes perfect. We’ll take it back to basics on the mats and the range, reviewing techniques that are crucial in close quarter combat situations.
Part 3: Test Your Skills
  • Don’t let the first time you try these techniques be the time it matters most. We’ll put your skills to the test in a home and office setting, walking through multiple scenarios with and without weapons.

CQB is open to all, but some familiarity with firearms is preferred. Seats are limited for this event and available as first come, first served.

    The men who run this class are absolutely excellent at what they do. They read people, they encourage them, they teach them skills that will keep you alive. They taught a wide variety of personalities and skill levels and varied their approach and their instruction to meet each and every student (as far as I saw) right where they were at. I was intimidated to attend, but so glad that I did. I was asked to really push outside my comfort zone, which is exactly what I wanted – to get uncomfortable and improve. I left better at shooting, better at grappling, more confident and with a game plan of how to keep learning and improving.
