Tactical Principles

The Ten Tactical Planning Principles come from the warrior's and gunfighters bible, which is used by Special Operations people the world over: THE ART OF WAR, by SUN TSU!

There are ten (10) Planning Principles which are used by the Personal Protection Group to Deter armed combat and to Disengage from armed confrontations, unless it is absolutely the last resort, and NECESSARY! They are as follows:

1. Observe the environment / assess the situation

2. Use undetected movement. Movement should be unheard / unobserved, if at all possible. This affords you the advantage over your opponent.

3. Closer is not better. The closer your position is to the opponent, the higher the stress level and the higher the danger level. Most opponents / offenders will either fight or flee. This is called: Flight or Fight Syndrome.

4. If you can see them, then they can see you. Even if you cannot see them, they can still see you. If you can be seen, you can be killed.

5. If disengagement is not possible, and you become engaged during contact, move on your opponent's flank. Never approach anyone head-on. And never, NEVER allow them to move on your flank.

6. Make them / let them, come to you. Never enter the KILL ZONE on your own volition, unless absolutely necessary. Never enter the FATAL FUNNEL of an entry way, from a lit background. You will silhouette yourself, and will make an excellent target!

7. You must know the terrain in which you operate. Proper knowledge of the environment and terrain is important. And it may assist you in operational planning, with regards to dead zones, cover and concealment, and escape routes.

8. Operate and engage from a position of COVER, whenever possible. Remember that CONCEALMENT is not COVER! DO NOT crowd your cover.

9. WE always engage with the principle of Mass, when possible. This means never engaging an opponent (s) one on one. Always engage using superior mass and always use a cover unit for engagement, unless necessary. If you see one opponent, ALWAYS think two, and that one may be hidden from view, using cover / concealment, from which to engage your position. Always assume that there is more than one primary opponent/assailant. ALWAYS look behind you.

10. DO NOT Negotiate with an opponent, in the face of an armed defensive encounter!
WE talk only when we need to distract our opponent.

THERE are four (4) goals you must achieve in an armed confrontation.

They are:

1. Divide your opponent's focus.

2. Disrupt his plan.

3. Disable his body.

4. Destroy his will to fight.
