The ShivWorks Armed Movement in Structures (AMIS) course is a two-day (20-hour) block of instruction focusing on negotiating movement problems within buildings with limited or no resources. Moving through a structure that contains armed hostiles, perhaps by oneself, is probably the most dangerous task one can undertake. This course presents the best options for winning a confrontation under those circumstances, with the qualification that there is simply no fail-safe way to do this. Please check our training calendar for upcoming offerings of AMIS and other ShivWorks classes near you.
