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.
