2-14 Execution at Combat Speed


When the instructor is confident that the soldiers being trained are skilled at executing a technique by the numbers, he is ready to have them execute it at combat speed. Executing movements at combat speed enables soldiers to see how effective a technique is. This builds the soldier’s confidence in the techniques, allows him to develop a clear mental picture of the principles behind the technique, and gives him confidence in his ability to perform the technique during an actual attack. The command is, THE RIGHT-HIP THROW AT COMBAT SPEED, MOVE. The soldiers then execute this technique from start to finish.
