The ICPS AKA the “Israeli method of Point Shooting is often regarded as a shooting style, when it is in fact a small percent of what makes this method unique and extremely effective. The ICPS initial form was adapted from the FSA (Fairbairn, Sykes and Applegate) Point Shooting method, based on the shooter Instinctive reactions and Kinematics to quickly engage close range targets.

The major contributed change to ICPS occurred in 1975 with the establishment of the YAMAM , first Israeli Police fully dedicated Counter Terrorism Unit. Because of its specialty in Counter Terrorism, hostage rescue and high violent crime, the unit performs in actual conflicts particularly in highly populated urban environments. This vast experience enabled the unit to develop comprehensive small arms training doctrines that were so effective, reliable and user friendly, it was generally accepted by all armed branches of the Israeli security forces such as the Secret Service (Shin Bet), elite IDF Units, Israeli National Police and other Intelligence and Counter Terrorism units.

Regarded as a Tactical Response and not as a shooting style, it incorporates all necessary progressive battlefield tactical thinking molded into set of Instinctive actions and reactions of the operator. The Israeli shooting method is radically different from other combat techniques; success is based on actual performance.

The ICPS has the distinct advantage of proving itself effective time after time, probably more than any other. It is literally practiced and perfected during daily performance by its core users. The guiding principle of the ICPS is to neutralize the threat in the quickest way possible, using the natural Instincts inherited in every human. Aggressiveness, determination and speed are integral elements of the ICPS method and proper mindset is heavily stressed.

Stress and pressure (High adrenaline levels) are introduced in the advanced stages of the training in order to accustom trainees to pressure associated with actual events. This approach is specially geared towards deadly force situations rather than shooting competitions, where often times techniques which brings high levels of accuracy on the range, often fail under real life stress.

This very same system has been taught to thousands of civilians from all walks of life in Israel with great success rates of actual performance. The ICPS method has proved itself through experience time after time to be well suited for the private citizen as well as the Law Enforcement officer and the Combat soldier.
