  Duane Dieter, Tactical Training, Tactical Knives - Close Quarters Defense, cqd.net
Understanding the critical decisions and responses necessary to save one’s life or that of another, in 1981 I established the Close Quarters Defense (CQD) System – an operationally focused, totally integrated program based on the concept that armed and unarmed defense skills and shooting/non-shooting responses must unify in all aspects of training.
CQD has been used operationally throughout the world, and its methods of validation and accountability are utilized by some of our nation’s top military special operations teams, police tactical units, and individual citizens to ensure readiness and provide the "critical edge".
In addition, our weapon enhancements and related innovations have been developed to enhance operational capabilities.

  Encyclopedia Titanica Message Board: The meaning behind CQD and SOS
'CQD' was standardised as a maritime distress call by the Marconi Wireless Telegraph Company in 1904.
She was, however, one of the first British vessels to use the signal.
Even though 'SOS'; was ratified as an international standard in 1908, British operators were loathe to abandon the traditional 'CQD' for a signal that was essentially a variation of a German proposal.

 Defense Review - New CQD Vertical Foregrip by Duane Dieter. We've Got Pics!
The primary factor that separates the CQD Vertical Foregrip from the rest of the pack is the way it attaches to the bottom rail.
Another interesting feature of the CQD vertical foregrip is the end cap that incorporates an o-ring for an airtight/watertight seal, which means one can probably safely store a set of AA batteries inside it.
You may notice that the CQD vertical foregrip is attached to a Precision Reflex (PRI) carbon fiber handguard w/aluminum rail.

Otherwise, in a normal situation in CQD you will use primary power, which uses speed to avoid hits including blocks from the opponent.
This power has no anger, and you should think of every situation as a challenge, In CQD you must never fear your opponent, "The Opponent is only a selection of images, destroy these images, and you will break your opponent" (Famous Quote Of Bruce Lee).
This is why in CQD it is very hard to demonstrate, or teach techniques, in doing so you will not convey your real thoughts, the best way to train in CQD techniques is to practice sparring with your opponent.
