In the Vehicle Combatives course, we develop empty-hand techniques for encounters that occur in and around vehicles.  The coursework is contextualized for the problems an armed citizen might face while inside or near an automobile. Skills are demonstrated and taught using both operable and inoperable vehicles. Student vehicles are also used for certain portions of instruction (no damage will be done to student vehicles).
