I am new to this community but am keen to learn about CQB from experts such as yourself.
I live in Western Europe, in which firearms are not readily available. As a Brit, I did not grow up using guns, but have had some experience with such weapons in the third world. I have also studied H2H. Back in London and Paris (where I'm based) however, the chances of having one's home invaded by an armed (that is to say, fire-armed) assailant is minimal, but knife-crime and other forms of violence are out of control in certain areas. Recently, a friend of mine was badly injured confronting an intruder in his family home armed with a baton. I have therefore, two central questions.
1. When clearing a building not armed with a weapon, do the same tactics apply as per traditional CQB? That is to say, slicing the pie, path of least resistance etc. (I'm not asking about the basics of staying silent, relying on surprise etc.)
2. If not, what tactics would you rely on?
I look forward to reading any comments you may have.
