Violence of Action

Speed, Surprise and Violence of Action are generally accepted principles of CQB and interior combat. Different schools of thought place emphasis on different principles to satisfy their doctrine. Personally, I have always thought that Violence of Action is the most misunderstood aspect.

"The mindset that you must cultivate
if you are going to fight inside a structure
is that of a hunter."

FAKE Combat Application Tourniquets

BOLO: FAKE Combat Application Tourniquets have been spotted at a Canadian Forces Combat First Aid (CFA) course! It was local contamination only by a misguided soldier who purchased it from Amazon. Canadian Armed Forces members should use only medical supplies issued by the Royal Canada Medical Service (RCMS).
