TAC-1 Combat Triad:

The doctrinal foundation of TAC-1 is the Combat Triad. It is composed of the three elements consisting of Combat Mindset (spirit), Skills (marksmanship, weapons handling) and Tactics (ways to gain advantage) . It is represented by the TAC-1 crest/tomoe-mon(巴紋) using the magatama (comma) symbols within the circle that are endless, interconnecting and equal in importance.These three elements are the foundation in which the ability to face and defeat violent adversary is laid out. They mutually support and complement one another; all three must be developed to the highest level of which one is capable to insure that one responds properly to violence if eminent. Mindset, however, stands at the pinnacle as our brain is the most important weapon when it comes to gun fighting.
