Is this class worth your time and money? Absolutely.
Will this class be the same week to week? No, the curriculum is modified over time based off feedback, efficiency, and relevancy to the students. There is no box checking.
SBS 3x3 format:
My top 3 things covered in the class
Response and decision making based off of stimulus BESIDES a timer beep
Pepper spray staging, deployment, "cook time"
3D targeting versus 2D targets (which paired very well with this Ballistic Radio episode)
My top 3 things I learned
Spontaneity is a thing - it confirms understanding surprisingly well
Integration of tools on hand, the difficulty of changing tasks/breaking out of the rabbit hole
Easy verification of correct TQ pressure
My top 3 things I am going to change
Integration of dry-fire/draw stroke practice of POM (and in-pocket carry vs clip, or both) More focus on CNS accuracy requirements
Pace-counting to help with knowing my limit
Lastly, get to know people better, and try to break out of the echo chamber we all have. Be human, do the dosey doe, tell stories, laugh, have dinner with new friends, smile, and be kind.
