A fantastic Sunday!

Sunday's are a great day to set the tone for the week. They are a day to get out of a funk, to exercise, to eat healthy, and to set goals to crush. Make the most of Sundays!

Later today I have a private Jiu-Jitsu lesson and then two hours of Women Empowered training. Can't wait!

Next Sunday our Fundamental Handgun Mastery Course is happening then soon after is our Kansas and Missouri Concealed Carry Course, and our new specialty courses Room Clearing and Handgun Tactics and Weapon Retention for Concealed Carry!

Training to automaticity

One of the greatest principles of skill development is the understanding that in order for a skill to be useful to you, it must be trained to a level of automaticity. This basically means to develop a skill to a point of reflex where little cognitive thought is actually required to perform it. This is when a skill truly becomes useful.

The question is, what does it take to develop that? The answer is consistent, focused training. That's where we come in!

We are ending the year with some awesome events to include our Fundamental Handgun Mastery Seminar, Kansas and Missouri Concealed Carry Course, Room Clearing and Handgun Tactics, and Weapon Retention for Concealed Carry!

Election Day!

Wednesday Thoughts

I'm a huge advocate of doing a little each day to work toward goals and skill development. Even 5 or 10 minutes of practice, both physically and mentally, can be a huge factor in improved performance. This is especially true over time. Training sessions do not always have to be long and arduous. There is is a time and place for those, but definitely not every day.

Join me this Friday night at 6:00pm for our incredible Women Empowered Seminar in Overland Park. You will be amazed!

Join us this Sunday at 8:00am for our unforgettable Kansas and Missouri Concealed Carry Course.


I say this all the time because I could not mean it more. Make training fun. Find a way! Let me tell you, it's not that difficult to do. Remember, you are not always at your best, and if you are out practicing then you are improving. Too many people but unnecessary pressure on themselves. Enjoy the moment. Trust me.

The Brandon Collins Memorial Shootout is THIS WEEKEND!

The FREE Women Empowered Seminar is Friday, September 25th, at 6:00pm.

Our amazing Kansas and Missouri Concealed Carry Course is Sunday, September 27th.


I promoted a diligent, hard-working student last night, and I trained with some great students today. Looking forward to an outstanding weekend of training.

The Brandon Collins Memorial Shootout is coming, the Kansas and Missouri Concealed Carry Course is coming, and our FREE Women Empowered Seminar and Women Empowered Boot Camp as well!

Look out for some awesome upcoming announcement friends. Train hard and be safe!

Training Mindset

Over the last several years, I've found a couple things that really work well for me in terms of training perspective. First, is important not to put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Enjoy training and trust that you are improving even if it does not seem like it. Second, always approach training and learning with a beginner's mindset. Be open to learning the skill at hand. So many people try to constantly get to the next move or train for very unlikely contingencies instead of simply pursuing mastery of the basics.

Get Going Podcast

I had a great time with fellow instructor Elizabeth on the Get Going Podcast. We talked about self-defense, Jiu-Jitsu, Firearms Training, dealing with worst-scenarios, business, and the current state of the world! It was a blast!

This is Royce Gracie week in Kansas and it's going to be amazing. Join us for one of the seminars.

Saturday, August 15th, our incredible Kansas and Missouri Concealed Carry Course in Lenexa. On Sunday, August 23rd, we will be doing our incredible popular Fundamental Handgun Mastery Seminar!

Training Tip Tuesday 21---Movement.

Training Tip Tuesday 21---Movement. If you train for self-defense purposes, you should practice each of your skills while moving. Reloading, clearing malfunctions, scanning and assessing, and even shooting can and should be done while moving. It is one thing to practice these things static in dry fire or on the range for safety purposes, but it is entirely another to perfect these skills while moving. I would suggest that from a tactical standpoint moving is usually going to be the more effective use of these skills. With the exception of situations in which you are safely protected by reliable cover, being a moving, functional handgun operator is a more effective strategy. Check out Fundamental Handgun Mastery and Personal Defense Mastery on Amazon! Kansas and Missouri Concealed Carry is happening July 26th and again August 15th. FREE Women Empowered Seminar on Friday, July 24th. Women Empowered Boot Camp is going on now! Train hard, be safe, and see you on the range!
