Small Unit Tactics Rural Reconnaissance & Surveillance with TYR Group

 Taught by: JOHN HURTH, President of TYR GROUP, Retired US Army Special Forces Soldier, and author of the “Combat Tracking Guide” published by Stackpole Books.

Hosted by Spartan Training Concepts

The TYR Group 5-Day Small Unit Tactics Course is designed to provide hands-on tactical experience to individuals and teams. As a result, this intensive five-day Small Unit Tactics Course is aimed to provide individuals and teams the hands-on experience, proper mindset and tools to survive deadly encounters no matter the environment.

Armed and deadly confrontations are not survived or won by machines, weapons, or gear, but by the individuals and teams who use them. As a matter of fact, the best-equipped warriors cannot survive or win deadly confrontations without proper mindset and effective training.  

Above all, our training and tactics emphasize fighting in close terrain. Furthermore, the principles, tactics, and techniques learned in this course will apply to most deadly encounters in a variety of environments.

Therefore, this Small Unit Tactics course provides its students the knowledge and experience to fight and survive. In essence, we build tacticians who will be capable of quickly analyzing a situation, to determine and apply the right tactic or technique, to aid in their survival.

For this reason, our instructors provide instruction based on years of knowledge and experience gained from fighting and surviving deadly encounters within small units.

Further, students who complete the course will be presented with a certificate upon completion of this 24+ hour course.
