Close Quarter Combat (CQC) is a modern and realistic self defence system.

It is a hybrid blend of many different martial arts, military and police tactics. CQC was originally developed for the military to fight enemy soldiers.

They needed an effective system that included unarmed, knife, stick and firearm combat.

Through trial and error soldiers quickly found out what was effective and was not.

ICS Close Quarter Combat combines the best techniques and strategies extracted from martial arts and combat systems from around the world.
