NOTE FROM STEWART: This is a working summit, not a place to just listen to speakers. As with the state and regional summits we have done in the past, the primary mission is to bring people together from the state (or region), regardless of what group they are in, and regardless of whether or not they are Oath Keepers members, and form them into teams with others near them, teach them how to organize that team with skillset sub-teams, based on the Special Forces A and B team model, and teach them how to do an area assessment/area study of their own AO and then take concrete, effective steps to strengthen their neighborhoods, town, county, and state. Saturday morning, Intelligence expert Sam Culper and I will lead participants in that crucial team building and assessment methods, and they will break out into groups based on where they are from, so they can form an effective team (the goal is to show them how to do it, so they can go home and teach/lead others). This is a “train the trainer” and “train the leader” working summit. Then, we will have speakers and training classes on each of the skillsets that are part of our CPT program.
There will be speakers on specific threats we face as a nation, along with some very solid skill training, but the principle goal is that team building and intelligence assessment.
Of special note is the daily infantry small unit tactics classes that will be provided by the National Infantry Training Center (NITC) – (formerly known as North Idaho Training Center). Learning to fight effectively as a team is one of the most vital skills that all of you must have in your toolbox. Unfortunately, very few instructors teach the core infantry skills of move, shoot, and communicate in buddy team, fire team, and squad, to the public. Most firearms instructors only teach individual skills and refuse to teach real infantry small unit tactics.
NITC is one of those rare training schools that do so, and do so very well. The experienced infantry instructors at NITC can give you a start on the vital infantry skills such as reacting to enemy fire and effectively breaking contact, among others. They will be running a class Friday night, Saturday night, and then again on Sunday during the day. Each four hour (or more) block of instruction will be only $25.00 (a real steal) plus $10.00 or so per magazine full of blanks you will fire. Please also bring some live ammo in case we can arrange to do some jungle lane shoots on Sunday.
We will also have informal classes on hand to hand and blade combat for the gunman. Those classes will be held before and after each meal, on each meal break, and into the evening after formal events end, and on Sunday afternoon once the other classes are over. Jason Van Tatenhove and I will be teaching those classes. Jason is an MMA fighter, a Brown belt in Judo, and has also trained extensively in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mu Thai kickboxing, and Western Boxing. He has fought in Thai Boxing and Western Boxing. He has also trained in Filipino martial arts.
I (Stewart) have trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (just a rusty blue belt), basic Western Boxing, military combatives, Jeet kun Do, and in the Villabrille-Largusa Kali System under the late Lindsey Largusa (Kali is a Filipino blade, stick, and empty hand martial art and is what I am most extensively trained in). I have also trained extensively in close quarters pistol and gun retention/disarms.
The goal of this class is to give “gun guys” some effective basic empty hand methods to counter sudden close range assault (both empty handed sucker punches and close attack by weapons) so they can fight until they can draw their pistol, and fight while using it, or, if the bad guy is going for their pistol, how to keep him from getting it, and how to get your blade or backup gun into play. We will cover weapon retention and disarms (handgun, long-gun, knife, and stick) in the context of that close range assault, both standing and on the ground (last place you want to be, but it happens), and while using your empty hands and also a backup blade/gun.
In addition, if anyone wants to learn the basics of Kali (starting with the stick), I would be happy to do some work on that too, as time allows.
This is a free class, but please do at least bring some leather gloves, some racketball goggles or similar eye protection, and if you can, some street hocky gloves or similar, and any plastic or rubber training guns or knives you may have, and if you have some bamboo kali/escrima sticks, or aluminum trainers, please bring those too. I will bring a few rubber fake training guns, some rubber knives, a couple of aluminum training knives, and some padded sticks, focus mits and a kicking shield, and one protective helmet, but if you have some training gear, please bring it.
This class is open to all, regardless of training or lack of training, and regardless of physical condition. We will adapt to you and you can go as light or as hard as you like, with no pressure, so please attend. Hand to hand is a vital skill and something we need to make part of our CPT training.
