Beginner Tips!

Post by Ryan » Sun Jun 03, 2012 3:00 am

We have beginner questions but no tips, a specific thread for discussion and Q&A.

What tips do you have for a start in the Close Quarter Battle environment?

What should they be learner first of all and be developing? :)

Well for someone who knows zip, they would have more important things to be learning first before looking into CQB. Mainly mindset and some basic weapons manipulation then they should be good to go for CQB stuff. I would start out by learning basic CQB principles and then moving onto basic tactics which is mainly learning to clear corners first and foremost and then moving onto hallways, rooms and then stairs.

So do a few courses or are you talking self-learn?

Absolutely, courses. Once the courses have been taken then, following up with some self practice is good as long as you realize teamwork exercises are necessary, too.
