Have you given much thought to how to clear a vertical angle such as a stairwell?

If you are upstairs when you discover there is an intruder in the main level of your house, it is usually best to be armed while barricading yourself in an upper-level "safe" room and calling the police.

But waiting isn't always an option. What if you have loved ones elsewhere in your home who need you to protect them? You may have trained on how to pie a corner, but have you given much thought to how to clear a vertical angle such as a stairwell?

In this video, Tactical Defense Institute (TDI) conducts Vertical Angles training for Personal Defense TV, which airs on the Sportsman Channel.

This training cycle was run by John Benner, founder of TDI, along with instructor David Bowie. You can find out more at www.tdiohio.com.
