Intuitive Defenseive Shooting

What is Intuitive Defensive Shooting?

Intuitive Defensive Shooting (IDS) is simply a new brand name for the Combat Focus Shooting (CFS) program…and it made since to the founder Rob Pincus because the definition of CFS was “an intuitive shooting program”.  We have changed the names of all of our CFS related classes to the new IDS designation.

Intuitive Defensive Shooting is a program designed to help the student become a more efficient shooter in the context of a Dynamic Critical Incident. This is not a marksmanship course, nor is it designed to accentuate skills that only work well on a square range in front of paper targets.

For decades, combat shooters have known (and progressive trainers have acknowledged) that the human body and mind have predictable, instinctive responses to surprise and lethal threats. While the basics of weapons handling and marksmanship are important skills for all shooters, they are not the basis for success during most lethal encounters involving the defensive use of a handgun.
