Modern Defensive Training Systems

Utica, NY --(Ammoland.com)- We possess a number of ways to move in a combative environment and it is well documented that movement is a life saving tactic.

Movement almost always helps us except maybe when attempting to engage a target with accurate gun fire.

This guide will focus on the varied methods of vertical displacement taught in the MDTS level 1&2 course work.

Vertical displacement in this context is movement along the vertical line or up and down through varied shooting positions. Vertical movement can aid us by making us a hard target when in a location where horizontal, forward or backward movement is inhibited, such as in a hallway. Vertical movement also aids us when attempting to establish a desired angle of fire or achieve maximum cover and/or concealment behind an object such as a vehicle, postal box or concrete Wal-Mart lamp piling in a parking lot.

Please note: This is meant to be a quick study guide not a treatise on positional shooting so adapt what is useful and discard what is not.

The following are (5) shooting positions along the vertical plane of movement:
