In this video, Matt Powell, while teaching at Pramek Cleveland, demonstrates different types of ground movements with weapons.
This is not meant to be direct firearms instruction, but how to utilize weapons training to reinforce proper movement mechanics. In the online and social media world, ‘rolling’ with pistols has become a fad. Matt specifically discusses why ‘rolling’ with a firearm is a ‘no no’ and not tactically sound….self-muzzling, muzzling of others, and lastly losing sight picture on a target. There are very few situations in which ‘combat rolls’ with a pistol are necessary when properly trained in tactical firearms usage.
