Training Tip of the Day 19-07 Learn like a child.

Training Tip of the Day 19-07 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, that OFTEN times slows the learning process. Meanwhile, without a lot of previous experience, children tend to be sponges ready to soak in any and all knowledge about the world around them.

As counter-intuitive as that may seem, that OFTEN times slows the learning process. Meanwhile, without a lot of previous experience, children tend to be sponges ready to soak in any and all knowledge about the world around them. They are simply ready to learn. My take away from this is that if adults really 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. Comment with your thoughts below! Train hard, be safe, and see you on the range (or mat)!

Training Tip of the Day 19-06 Managing the Distance.

Training Tip of the Day 19-06 Managing the Distance.Last week, I received a message from one of our friends asking me to do a video or training tip on self-defense for an older or disabled person with a cane. This is not the first time I have been asked this type of question, so I thought today I would do a training tip laying out the foundation of self-defense when using a cane. I have trained with staffs and other similar weapons/instruments throughout my martial arts career, but do not train regularly with them currently.

Kansas Concealed Carry Course

BELOW WAS MY RESPONSE WHEN ASKED WHY TO TAKE THE KANSAS CONCEALED CARRY COURSE! THERE IS SO MUCH MISINFORMATION OUT THERE FRIENDS! COME TRAIN WITH US AND SET YOURSELF APART!

"Because the Concealed Carry License gives reciprocity in 39 other states. Because obtaining the Concealed Carry License expedites the process of purchasing guns. Because with the Federal Gun Free School Zone Act you cannot carry within a thousand feet of any school K-12 UNLESS you are licensed in that state.Because training in gun safety, mindset, fundamentals, and laws is imperative to being a responsible owner. Finally, because most people reading this had no idea of all the things I just mentioned and this and so much more is contained in our course."

Training Tip of the Day 19-05 Putting Training into Perspective.

Training Tip of the Day 19-05 Putting Training into Perspective.For today’s training tip, I thought I would share with you part of my perspective about training. People constantly ask me how I am able to train so often and so consistently. First and foremost I keep training fun. For tips on this, stay tuned for future tips or review many from the past! But beyond that, I understand that progression and improvement are not achieved in a straight upward line. You will have good days, bad days, and days that are just average.

Training Tip of the Day 19-04 Vision and Multiple Targets.

Training Tip of the Day 19-04 Vision and Multiple Targets.Multiple target drills are extremely valuable for practicing handgun fundamentals. Not only does it allow you to incorporate all of the mechanics that good shooting entails, multiple target shooting requires you to work on an extremely important component of shooting—vision. Because of the need to acquire multiple targets, it is extremely common for shooters to find themselves focusing too much on the targets instead of the front sight. Focused practice and accurate placement requires the shooter to understand where they need to focus their eyes.

Training Tip of the Day 19-03 One Hand Shooting Part 2.

Training Tip of the Day 19-03 One Hand Shooting Part 2. When shooting with one hand, one of the most essential elements is keeping your hand as high on the back of the pistol as possible. This will maximize your recoil control while allowing you to get a firm grip on your gun. This is particularly important when shooting with only one hand. Next, it is important to lock your wrist and attempt to establish a firm shooting platform by combining solid bone structure with a stable, well-balanced stance. Finally, it is usually a good idea to lock your support hand into the center of your chest as opposed to hanging down by your side. If you have any other tips, questions, or comments about one hand shooting post them below! SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24 ASSISTANT RANGE OFFICER COURSE AND KIDS HANDGUN SAFETY!
