Empty Room Syndrome

Post by Ryan » Wed Jul 23, 2014 5:58 am

Empty Room Syndrome is one of the many fundamental problems with modern day Close Quarter Battle training.

Entries are often made to virtually empty rooms against paper targets. What are you thoughts on this?

Often called a "sterile environment".

Clean rooms with paper targets is the killhouse version of the square range. Good for beginners to get used to CQB drills but later on they will need to progress onto FoF for more realistic training before training scars develop.

We're talking furniture, barricades, obstacles...?

Yes, clean = no obstacles, furniture etc.
