Course Summary: How many more soldiers must continue to die as the first and second members of an entry team by getting shot or activating a booby trap or IED? Currently, most CQB and urban warfare training is done by companies that teach the same unsafe method of entry. During training, military and Special Forces trainees thank us for finally being able to learn something new and effective. To date, we have trained several military Special Forces groups currently working in Iraq, Afghanistan, Africa and other parts of the world. These groups have fully adopted the Israeli CQB and Urban Warfare methodology that we have instructed them.
Former trainee: The following is a comment from a soldier that we trained in Israeli CQB, "Here's the story of what happened while I was in Iraq. ..... We were doing a raid in Kirkuk, Iraq. I was point man,  When I entered the first room, I naturally did the technique that I learned while training at CRI instead of the way the U.S. Army taught me. Well, behind the first door there was a man with a weapon and he opened up on us. But since I entered in the way CRI taught, I didn't get shot. It was the safest way to enter a room with the minimum amount of exposure. I know that this technique saved my life and that of my squad.
And, another
story. We were on an escort mission when I noticed that there was a lack of civilians and cars on the road. It was a scary silence like the one right before something happens. Well, CRI classes on I.E.D.'s were important. I backed off the truck in front of me by 100 meters or so - as soon as I did that, an I.E.D. exploded 5 to 10 feet in front of me. If I wouldn't have backed off, the I.E.D. would have injured or killed me or members of my squad. Everything C.R.I. teaches can and will be used in the world to defeat terrorism worldwide. "
