ITPS – Israeli Tactical Point Shooting (alternatively ICPS – IDF Tactical Combat Shooting) is treated as a tactical response, incorporating the necessary progressive battlefield tactical thinking, molded into a set of instinctive actions/reactions.

It is different from other combat techniques in that it is based on real-time performance. ITPS is practiced and constantly perfected during daily performance by its core users.

In this course, students will be presented with the best features used in the Israeli handgun combat system. Trainees will
learn fundamentals of urban fighting, shooting with one or two hands, various concealed carry conditions, enhanced peripheral vision, employment of lethal option tactics against multiple threats, and progressing to advanced close combat fighting techniques.
