Basic Questions: The Strong Wall

Post by Ryan » Fri May 25, 2012 9:30 am

What is the strong wall?

It's not an actual WALL as in a partition wall, a structural wall. It's a tactic glued to a certain wall. The wall of the entry point.

Sub-concepts include short and long wall versions.

Short meaning the shortest wall side, if that's cleared for example pre-entry then you want to clear the longest wall side. This is taking up MORE of the room than the short wall. In center and corner feds you find different typical wall lengths and hence why that matters - it makes the difference between POLR vs buttonhook as an example.

Any weak wall? :P I've used the term weak wall or area to point out the weakest place in the room to dominate the threat, engage the threat, i.e. moving off into a location which visually obscures the threat; that may be when running a certain wall.

Strong wall tactics: or referred to as common wall

The tactic of remaining on the same wall as the entry door and locking down threats prior to leaving said wall
