- Part I: After much research into human nature we, here at ITC, decided to integrate the use of firearms and unarmed combat skills. We developed these techniques since there are a large portion of people who think that when you have a gun in your hands you should do something different than you would if you were unarmed. The fact that you have a gun does not necessarily mean your tactics should change, but rather that you have another option available to you. Your gun is a tool and NOT the solution to your problem!
Knowing WHEN AND IF you should draw your gun is critical to your survival. Our philosophy is to MOVE FIRST, DISTRACT (if possible), and then ATTEMPT to draw your gun, if that is the thing for you to do! Drawing and firing your gun will NOT guarantee your survival! Your drawing and shooting skills are only a small part of the formula for survival.
