Northern Red.
Purpose built for individuals assigned to DoD or Law Enforcement entry teams tasked with conducting close quarters battle, Advanced Opposition Based CQB is a class for veteran shooters dedicated to taking their craft to the limit of their abilities. In force-on-force runs through realistic houses, students will face a range of opponents intent on stopping the entry team in their tracks or delaying them long enough for their compatriots to complete their own objectives. Each run will be analyzed by instructors and participants alike with combat proven techniques introduced by men who have used them to overcome the exact encounters the students face.

End State.
With dozens of runs through the house completed, students will have tested not only their own TTPs and abilities, but their equipment and themselves. Advanced Opposition Based CQB can be an eye opening experience, where what does and what does not work is laid bare and shooters get a rare chance to refine their approach to the some of the most dangerous work in the business. As with every Northern Red class, students also leave with tools for identifying their short comings and overcoming them with a template utilized by the majority of the United States Special Operations community.
