Seventy Eighth Security Forces Squadron Airmen conducted Shoot, Move and Communicate, and Combatives training at the EOD Range and fitness center annex respectively Aug. 19 and 21, 2014. During the SMC training, Airmen hone their skills on how to react. Participants go over different firing positions, fighting stances, maneuvers and communications while targeting the enemy.
Combatives training includes self defense, weapons retention, hand-to-hand combat, submission holds and non-lethal techniques and strikes. The two-part training starts in the morning with intense warm-ups and stretching, followed by basic fighting techniques, including a light sparring session with a partner to recap all of the techniques taught as it applies in use-of-force regulations.
