Training Tip Tuesday ---Legal Training-One of the most common deficiencies in the vast majority of citizens’ overall self-defense strategy is their basic understanding of the law in regard to self-defense. Throughout the years, I have heard people say, with absolute conviction mind you, statements that have ZERO legal basis. It is not uncommon for people to say, “My brother who is a cop said…or I was reading on a gun debate message board, or I heard that...” Not knowing the law is not a defense, and misunderstanding the law (even with good intentions) is not a defense. Because legal issues are of monumental importance, can be complex, and can change over time, it is critical that you add legal training to your overall program.
Fundamental Handgun Mastery and Personal Defense Mastery are both available on Amazon! Our 8 Week Women Empowered Boot Camp starts June 6th. And of course our wildly popular Concealed Carry Course returns in July. Train hard and be safe everyone!

Training Tip Tuesday “Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless, and then add what is specifically your own.” - The previous quote is attributed to the legendary Martial Artist, Philosopher, and Actor Bruce Lee. Before I continue writing, I should say I agree with the message. That being said, I think the concept in this quote has been misapplied by a substantial amount of well-intentioned people. Specifically, the “reject what is useless” portion of the quote. In both firearms and empty hand martial arts, I have seen people “reject what is useless” in terms of a technique they are not familiar with, or steps to perform a firearm manipulation, etc. simply because they were not IMMEDIATELY proficient at it. “Yeah, I tried that technique it does not work for me.” “I do not do it that way because my hands are too small, my legs are too short,” or whatever excuse they come up with. The point I am making is too many people give up on a certain technique or method way before they are qualified to do so. Ultimately, this hurts their skill development and understanding in the long run. So, to end this training tip of the day I give you this quote from an unknown source, “To be good at something, you have to be willing to be bad at it.”

Training Tip Tuesday: Always be a Student- It is incredible how many “instructors” in both martial arts and firearms only “teach.” It appears that these people want the title of instructor before doing the work that the position deserves. This should always raise suspicions amongst current and prospective students. The best teachers are the most dedicated students. If you are a teacher, you owe it to yourself, and more importantly your students, to be just as much a student as you are a teacher. If you are a student who wishes to become a teacher, know that you should and will ALWAYS be a student.

Training Tip Tuesday: Working Through Plateaus-Training to become proficient in any skill has its ups and downs. Training is also just as much a mental game as it is a physical one. I think it is important to remember that getting better is not always a direct path. You will have good days and bad days as well as what will seem like plateaus in your development. Many people misunderstand this process and subsequently quit because they think they have reached their full potential. On the contrary, pushing past these phases of the learning process is precisely why you will improve. Remember this the next time you have a couple of bad performances at the range. The real battle will be won simply by staying in the game!
This Sunday is our Concealed Carry Course. Also, our next Women Empowered Boot Camp begins June 6th. We hope to see you soon!

Training Tip Tuesday (One Wednesday) - Change Things Up-Although cliché, it is hard to argue that humans are creatures of habit. In terms of skill development, this is not always the best thing. While consistent, focused, repeatable reflexes are ideal in certain segments of the skill-building process, this also leads to plateaus and stagnation. Sometimes this happens without us realizing it. Change things up, practice things you do not think you are good at, and always be open to new drills and ways of doing things. Not only is this fun, but it will also make you better!
