Today’s Marines operate within a continuum of force where conflict may change from low intensity to high intensity over a matter of hours. Marines are also engaged in many military operations other than war, such as peacekeeping missions or noncombatant evacuation operations, where deadly force may not be authorized. During non-combative engagements, Marines must determine if a situation warrants applying deadly force. Sometimes Marines must decide in a matter of seconds because their lives or the lives of others depend on their actions. To make the right decision.

"This report describes the Structured Training for Units in the Close Combat Tactical Trainer (STRUCCTT) Project. The purposes of this project were to: (a) design and develop a basic core set of exercises to support initial Close Combat Tactical Trainer (user testing and future fielding, and (b) develop an exercise framework within which future exercises can fit as part of a contextually complete family of exercises. This report first describes the background of this initiative (the use of structured simulation-based training in CCTT) and identifies the objectives laid out for project completion. It then discusses the project's design, development, and formative evaluation processes. The design section describes the processes and procedures involved in creation of the exercise mission scenarios and training objectives. The development section highlights the processes that comprise and contribute to the creation of completed exercises, to include training support packages and demonstrations of performance. The formative evaluation section describes the project evaluation strategy and methodology, and the processes by which exercise testing and modification were conducted. Following this section, the lessons learned section presents issues which framed the project's progress and development, and which may provide insight and directions for additional developmental work. A final concluding section discusses the ramifications of this project, with recommendations for future development efforts."--Stinet.

The Special Operations Executive (SOE) was the paramount Allied sabotage force of the Second World War. Its job - in Churchill's words - was to "set Europe ablaze" through the use of sabotage, insurrection and assassination. One of its "shining Stars" and "legends" was the close-combat pistol instructor, Colonel Hector Grant-Taylor. Grant-Taylor taught the commandos, secret agents and irregular soldiers the art of how to kill at close quarters. He taught them how to be ruthless, lethal and covert, and yet his own life was itself a mystery worthy of a John Buchan thriller novel. Misinformation, deception, bravery, murder, and ultimately redemption, all play a part in his story. At Close Quarters finally puts to rest the myths and legends that surrounded his life, and unravels the mysterious truth behind the enigma that was Colonel Hector Grant-Taylor!

"This report describes the work done on the "Structured Training for Units in the Close Combat Tactical Trainer-2" (STRUCCTT-2) Project, a follow-on to the STRUCCTT Project. The purposes of this project were to (a) develop additional exercises for inclusion in the initial training support packages (TSPs) and (b) develop an orientation course TSP and exercises which are necessary to support the Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT) complete system fielding. This report first summarizes the background (the use of structured simulation-based training in CCTT) and identifies the technical objectives for the project. The development section discusses the processes used to create the TSBs. The formative evaluation section details the project evaluation strategy and method and includes a description of exercise and TSP testing and modification. Following this segment, the lessons learned present issues regarding this project's processes and product development which provide insight and direction for additional developemtn work. The final section of the report contains a discussion of recommendations for future TSP development."--Stinet.

For instructors of non-sport martial training, this Master's Manual details 340 duan chuan fa or "Short Fist" extremely aggressive and terminal close range fighting techniques, maneuvers and strategies against specific aggressions. As this is oriented toward seasoned instructors, no photos are included, nor are they necessary with the detailed written directions. This is not "self defense" material: that is not its genesis and it is patently inappropriate for those who do not train seriously.The techniques present combinations of throws, locks, breaks, holds, chops, kicks, punches and other strikes arranged in 11 levels of belt ranks up to 5th Black, as presently used in the Chuan Fa Kenpo system. Each technique will easily suggest 10 optional and equally effective maneuvers, i.e. these are "seeds" for dynamic, adaptive responses. There has been a deliberate attempt in the Manual's layout to allow room for you to leave tracks as you modify these seminal maneuvers.
