WEAPONS BASED ENVIRONMENT (WBE): We live in and move through three primary planes: vertical (standing), horizontal (laying down) or a combination (sitting). What we can do in the vertical plane, when standing, both physically and with a firearm changes significantly when in the horizontal or combo planes. Because the concealed carry handgun may be seen and felt when in close contact an understanding of fighting position, posture, pressure and in-fight-weapon-access timing in each plane of movement is required to successfully retain that weapon or bring it into the fight. Without that understanding and those skill sets a handgun or any weapon on either combatant can be utilized to help you or hurt you. If you lack an understanding of fighting in the horizontal plane seek out a qualified #BJJ gym in your area and begin training then apply those skills and knowledge to your firearms training in the multiples planes of movement. #ECQC #IFWA #WBE #handgun #timing #mdts #training @shivworks_and_alumni #pistol #theigmilitia #igmilitia @sharpdefense @immediateactioncombatives @matt_hajdasz
