Rob Pincus teaches the 3 Cs: Clear, Control, Counter when an attacker draws a weapon in a close-quarters armed confrontation. Clearing before you counter your enemy means that you clear the weapon or yourself from the space prior to counter-attacking, and it is an important skill to utilize. If you don’t do this, you risk being wounded before you have the chance to actually counter. After you have cleared, you must also control before countering. Depending on the circumstances, you may choose to control the weapon or the attacker. The final step is counter, but it only happens after you clear and control. Not following this sequence is putting yourself at great risk!
