Counter Ambush: The Science of Training for the Unexpected Defensive Shooting Paperback – January 1, 2013
This groundbreaking book was the first work to a take a deep dive into the underlying neurology and physiology of training to defend yourself with a gun. Since 2013, Rob Pincus and his team at I.C.E. Training Company have continued to evolve their live fire courses in accordance with these principles. There have also been other works that follow the lines of Counter Ambush published more recently, but none take the same simple approach to accepting the realities of how the body reacts to suddenly presented danger and the best ways to prepare your body and mind to respond in the most efficient ways possible.
Counter Ambush is the clearest expression of the core principles that Pincus and hundreds of other instructors have based their training methods on for two decades. These principles have served as a foundation for the Extreme Close Quarters Counter Ambush Programs at the Valhalla Training Center, the Combat Focus Shooting, The USCCA’s Defensive Shooting Fundamentals courses, the Intuitive Defensive Shooting Program and many other personal defense classes. Thousands of people have applied what they’ve learned from this book to their own training and practice as well.
