TRAINING TIP TUESDAY-- Every Tuesday for the next TWENTY weeks, I will be posting a training tip from my new book Personal Defense Mastery, which along with the updated and re-edited Fundamental Handgun Mastery, is available on Amazon. Like, share, and comment and throughout the process I will be giving away signed copies of both books. Please leave a review on Amazon and we can't wait see you in a class this year!
Training Tip #1 Learn like a child-Have you ever noticed that children acquire new skills at an exponentially faster rate than most adults? Do you ever wonder why this is the case? Over the last decade of training thousands of students, I have an idea. When adults learn, they are bringing quite a bit of previous experience and preconceived notions with them. As counter-intuitive as that may seem, this oftentimes slows the learning process. Meanwhile, without a lot of previous experience, children tend to be sponges ready to soak in all knowledge about the world around them. They are simply ready to learn. My take away from this is that if adults want to learn something, they should forget about preconceived notions just for a moment, and attempt to learn the skill as a total and complete beginner. I believe anyone who does this will be amazed at the results.
