Comment on Hallway Technique: The Blast

The blast, the lower formation pictured.

You push past the opening leaning more towards speed rather than security. It is named after the same technique for obstacle or linear danger area crossings where you "blast" the road by running straight across it. Note: Side plates should be in.

Seen in this gif.

When you have intelligence or vital area's you have to reach fast/first it sometimes helps to run past doors/corridors or whatever, but make sure you run first, not last.

Clearing systematic room by room is much safer because you know everything behind you is cleared. But if your objective demands speed over security then thats too bad.
Security is something you sacrifice when you work in these situations.

This looks somewhat like the Active Shooter protocols that we teach here in the U.S. In-line movement to the obvious threat. I'm not always a big fan of that concept, however. I like to know that I'm not leaving a threat behind me. If you're in a school shooting situation, where you know that the school protocol is that all classrooms are locked down, immediately? Yeah, I can see doing that. In a shopping mall Active Shooter situation? The Westgate Mall in Kenya? Nope. Clearing every single opening. Even if I have to wait for someone else to walk the line with me.
If you have `cleared' all the rooms and met no resistance, you and your entry team have probably kicked in the door of the wrong house.

Isnt this technique also called "blow-through"? Might be something to consider in hostage rescue scenarios.

Blow-by, blow-through. Same things AFAIK.
