13RC is a fully integrated tactical hand to hand combat and defensive tactics system designed to address the needs of the modern tactical officer and/or operator under the true-to-life environmental conditions.
- Complements existing marksmanship
- Expands on subject-target control techniques
- Extends existing CQB
- Not MMA, Jiu-Jitsu, or sport fighting
23RC is a combatives system engineered around the constraints of precision law enforcement and special operations actions taking into account: tactics, (TTPs), (SOPs), team/element resources available, force continuums, and typical environmental conditions. 3RC does this by addressing the universal 3 Ranges of Combat that universally apply to all combatives and encounter(s):
- Grappling (grounded)
33RC curriculums are strictly restricted to law enforcement and special operations personnel. Core techniques are blended seamlessly into advanced marksmanship skills, CQB tactics, and officer individual kit and equipment considerations; thereby eliminating any need to modify techniques in order for them to be assimilated into the repertoire.
What is 3 Range Combatives (3RC)?
3RC is a fully integrated (compliments/supplements existing marksmanship, subject-target control techniques, CQB and other related small unit tactics) tactical hand to hand combat and defensive tactics system designed to address the needs of the modern tactical officer and/or operator under the true-to-life environmental conditions where high risk operations are prosecuted. 3RC is not mixed martial arts, sport fighting, and/or submission grappling or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. While fundamentals concepts are drawn from some of these “systems” the 3RC system has been tailored to address real world-combat application(s). 3RC has a unique and special methodology that has been carefully developed through more than a decade of experience with, and exposure to, the elite law enforcement tactical and military special operations communities by Mr. Chad Lebrun.More specifically, 3RC is a combatives system engineered around the constraints/limitations/requirements of surgical and precision law enforcement and special operations actions taking into account: tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs), Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), team/element resources available (i.e. weapons, enabling devices, etc), force continuums (including lethal and less than lethal force considerations) and typical environmental conditions (i.e. confined space, open air, public purview). 3RC does this by addressing the universal 3 Ranges of Combat – striking, clinch, and grappling (grounded) that universally apply to any/all combatives and defensive tactics encounter(s). A decade of “field research” has facilitated the evolution of a program of instruction focused on simple to master core techniques (at universal combat ranges) with associated linkages (technique options) that mitigate overall risk to the officer/operator, and maximize the desired effect against the subject/target.
3RC curriculums are strictly restricted to law enforcement and special operations elements/teams/personnel. 3 Range Combatives curriculums are framed around core techniques – the 3RC core techniques are considered “high percentage of success techniques under high frequency of occurrence conditions”, thereby providing the officer/agent with the most relevant and applicable combatives techniques; core techniques offer a simple, easy to execute menu that have been tailored to ensure, even when application is less than perfect, the officer/operator will not be exposed to additional harm or tactical disadvantage. Core techniques are blended to seamlessly integrate into advanced marksmanship skills, CQB tactics, and officer/operator individual kit and equipment considerations; thereby eliminating any need to modify, finetune or otherwise “fix” techniques in order to allow them to be assimilated into a team’s (and individual officer/operator’s) repertoire.
3 Range Combatives understands that certain investments are made throughout the training of personnel. We are well versed in the risks involved and work hard to minimize those risks without compromising the quality of our results.
