The purpose of this section is to show necessity and possibility of creating the general method of training which will suit both special sub-units of the army and commercial security services. Nowadays all over the world there are a lot of local wars and conflicts characterized with the use of small arms and small-calibre artillery arms, which supposes new requirements to the physical condition and individual tactical competence of the soldiers. The unstable international and national situation needs controlling by state's special forces, which have to use special troops restricted by new more rigid requirements due to the obvious progress in fighting at critical distance.

Banks, big firms, corporations and holdings have to organize and license armed guards in order to provide safety. New requirements are being set for encashment and communication services. These are the reasons for a high interest being shown by potential "consumers" towards new methods of training. Moreover, though they used to be more interested in the results of a sub-unit as a whole, nowadays, due to being well equipped technically, tactically, psychologically, etc., much more attention is attracted by terms of personal fitness of a potential executor, his ability to adapt to particular conditions, and also by analysis of perspective development and periodic through testing.

Nowadays there is not a unanimous methodic base for teaching techniques of using weapons, hand-to-hand fighting or special martial techniques. And the reason for that is separateness and competition among:

  1. state forces;
  2. armed forces;
  3. commercial organizations.

Development of methods, choice of arms and tactical techniques is, as a rule, strictly specific and depends directly on supposed tasks. As a result, every department has to keep a teaching and training base and maintain its own methods.

It is highly inefficient to try to design a universal technical system without concerning personal peculiarities of students. Only strategy and tactics can be universal! Furthermore, the majority of "universal" techniques need long-term training in special conditions, which can not be done while continuing normal work or service. After finishing such course student's fitness, rating and perspective direction of studying are extremely difficult to define.

Considering everything mentioned above, I would like to introduce The System of Periodic Training. The whole method can be divided into 4 sections:

  1. special physical training;
  2. firing training;
  3. hand-to-hand fighting;
  4. special techniques and psychological training.

Before putting together a methodical plan, the instructor together with a representative of a client decide on the purposes of the students and analyze the work of the sub-unit. If necessary the following actions take place in the sub-unit:

  1. survey;
  2. archives work;
  3. interview;
  4. testing;
  5. secret service investigation;
  6. description of the head of the sub-unit.

The initial survey includes:

  1. gender;
  2. age;
  3. ethnical group;
  4. social background;
  5. education;
  6. social environment;
  7. financial requirements;
  8. social system in the country when the respondent was 10-18 years old;
  9. political views;
  10. self-estimation of preparedness;
  11. weight;
  12. height;
  13. sports experience;
  14. martial experience;
  15. self-estimation of the respondent's personality type (psychological testing is made if necessary).

Tactical peculiarities of the sub-unit are amplified and the following choice is made:

  1. to teach the whole group together;
  2. to divide the group:
    1. according to the list;
    2. according to the preparedness;
    3. according to the tactical and psychological concerns;
  3. to teach the students individually.

After this the topics from all 4 above mentioned sections are chosen in accordance with:

  1. the tactics of the sub-unit;
  2. rating of the students;
  3. the student's level number;
  4. perspective direction of studying;
  5. perspective direction of studying;

Curriculum is based on the aforementioned work plan. The duration of each teaching course is 7 days, 10 academic hours per day. The periodicity is each 2 - 3 months. Besides the periodical training, in the curriculum there should be the Morning Physical Hour (the qualification improvement course), during which each theme of the previous courses are being practiced, one theme per day. Each student is evaluated within the 10-point system, and moreover, on every lesson the results are calculated and both total and personal ratings are summed up.

Every lesson should contain a persistent irritant:

  1. physical fatigue;
  2. moral suppression;
  3. excessive brutality of the instructor;
  4. accentuated personal responsibility;
  5. rigid timing;
  6. strict system of seniority;
  7. negative outer factors.

The outer influence should become harder according to the level of students. The instructor does not interfere in the students' work. The critique and the announcement of the marks take place during the last 10 minutes of the lesson. The basis of learning is independent training after careful consideration of the gained information. Extreme level of efforts allows to :

  1. intensify perception to a maximum level;
  2. bring the training close to real conditions;
  3. shorten the time of learning;
  4. check all the forms of the sub-unit's compatibility.

The whole education process must go in the form distinctive to this sub-unit. During teaching a sub-unit the secrecy measures should be followed strictly in accordance with normative documents. The students get ordinal numbers and train wearing masks. A senior student is chosen to be in charge of discipline questions. During the course the students write 1-2 minutes' quizzes which are evaluated according to the 10-point scale and each of them gives its own amount of points. Furthermore, all the papers are stitched, numbered, sealed and kept in the sub-unit. Audio or video recording is made on agreement with the instructor, yet it is not welcomed.
