Articulate to others a form of violence induced poetry for the auditory learners to hear the skill, visually perform the skill as an aggressive dance for the visual learners to see and process.

Have them perform the skill in first isolation and then in a simulation for the kinesthetic learners to feel the technique. Not everyone moves the same, looks the same, or learns the same. Once you understand that you become a teacher, not just a trainer. πŸ“· @bcgmediaπŸ“· #runenationllc #nooneiscomingtosaveyou #greyhive #teaching #learning #education #outdoors #nh #morethanjustapaycheck #morethanjustthegun #applyyourself #adversityislife #aresclothing #aresgunteam #violentprofessional

Running:
@glockinc 17 with

@trexarms Mars Pistol Mag Carriers,
and ringing almost all of my @tatargets steel!
β€”β€”β€”
Improving my transitions is something that’s taken me a lot of time to gain traction on, but I know what I need to do to move forward and that’s what’s important. Better consistency in my Dryfire and being intentional and focused every time I hit the range.
β€”β€”β€”
Not a terrible run here but I still really need to focus on driving the gun on to the next target quickly without needing to β€œconfirm” my dot.
I hope you guys get some solid range time this weekend!
If you’re looking for some solid training inspiration and knowledge go follow these guys who are just a few of the awesome shooters I’ve been grateful to learn from: @greyhive @baersolutions @esydow13 @pinkman.83 @lucastrexarms πŸ’―πŸ”₯

The high ready is 1 of 2 ready positions I go over in my rifle classes. One is not better than the other and each have their own pros/cons.

As an educator to say otherwise would be pigeon hole’ing yourself in the fact that you’re stating you can somehow predict the situation/environment you’ll be in.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Mechanics and fundamentals are for the most part consistent across the board. Although, applying them in tactics may change due to the β€œturning of the tides” of the people/places/things you’ll be around.

Look at the macro instead of the micro in order to gain a better understanding of how to apply the mechanics you learned outside of the square range mentality. πŸ“· @edgarshermandesignπŸ“· #runenationllc #nooneiscomingtosaveyou #greyhive #edgarshermandesign #outdoors #nh #education #learning #teaching #technique #fundamentals #mechanics #highready #knowledge #software

New article up on the website by @seriousshooters about his experience and what he learned from his first USPSA match. Read an excerpt below, head to the website and register for your free account and subscribe to our YouTube channel. Article link in bio.

With all of the training I have been doing this year I decided the next step in my progression as a shooter was to try out the competition stuff. I decided to start with a local USPSA match. Walking away from the match, I learned how competition is a great test of your overall shooting ability, the mental or "thinking" aspect of shooting plays a major role in your performance, and can provide you with a clear picture of what you need to work on...

Most people see just a coin, but those that either are or have served in the defense of our country or community knows what it means.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
To be presented and entrusted with these was one of the many highlights of my most recent trip. The one on the left was presented to me by my brother Drew of @baersolutions. This coin represents his former unit CRF, A Co, 1st Bn, 5th SFG (A). Trust me when I tell you the stories he has told me in confidence, shows through the humility and knowledge he possesses.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
On the right is the Special Operations division of the TN Highway Patrol. It was presented to Drew and I by the LEO we had in class. This man not only was involved with multiple work involved shootings (which is rare in itself), but also is a true representation of what I consider the multifaceted tactician. LEO, K9 handler, EOD tech, and diver.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
To have someone of his caliber give these to us along with the positive feedback during the debrief makes me feel honored. In the end, we know the skills we are putting out may be used by someone who puts his life on the line everyday. From the bottom of my heart, a big thanks goes to putting trust in me, my knowledge, and my company. #runenationllc #nooneiscomingtosaveyou #baersolutions #greyhive #collaboration #brotherhood #thinblueline #passionoverpaychecks #TN #outdoors #education #teacher #SOF

This badass right here is a guy I’m proud to call a friend. I reached out to Drew with a decisive message some time ago basically saying β€œI suck and would love the opportunity for accountability”. Thru that admission, a ton of growth and an awesome friendship was created. Despite what this platform might tell you, it’s okay to say β€œI don’t know”. If you feel uncomfortable and unprepared reach out to a credible individual who has the experience and resume to be able to help you. A great start would be some of the following: @baersolutions β€’ @slytactraining β€’ @runenationllc β€’ @kagwerks β€’ @reston_group

Finally decompressing after the 2nd iteration of Concealed Carry Applications Lvl 1&2 with @baersolutions. When I joke to friends and students that I am the β€œBringer of Rain,” I’m not joking....and this class proved that. Regardless, every single students put forth the effort and as usual not a single complain was heard from anyone.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
This class brought a various mixture of backgrounds from civilians, engineering students, student born and raised in France, students involved in a home invasion, and a LEO involved in multiple shootings. The information brought forth from not just Drew and I, but the students as well was astounding.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Everyone walked away stronger in the mental and the physical as well as a more confident understanding in the application of their pistol in a concealed context. I sit here humbled to know the information Drew and I put out this past weekend resonated with individuals from various walks of life.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Our end goals for our students are to not only have all questions answered, but to make humans better...stronger....deadlier. So that if and when the situation presents itself to be victim or victor, they have the skills to end the fight and go home to their families. You can’t EVER put a price on that. Until next year folks train hard, train safe, and train to live...remember, no one is coming to save you. #runenationllc #nooneiscomingtosaveyou #baersolutions #greyhive #brotherhood #partnership #business #travel #outdoors #TN #drewhopkinssaysimaniceguy

As an educator, if you don’t have enough trust in your students to be able to run others through specific drills...you’re doing it wrong.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
With larger classes when time is limited, being able to split the class up into multiple groups allows more trigger time and learning. Being able to pick out a specific student to lead others in the class shows not only trust to the remainder of the student body, but shows that you don’t view the student body as equal.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Yes, you read that right. In any facet of life some will be better or worse than others. Utilizing those who enter the class with advanced skillsets will take less stress off of you as the teacher, and will show the remainder of the students how to self-diagnose. This is by far one of the greatest skills you can give to a student. πŸ“· @jay.gunzalezπŸ“· #runenationllc #nooneiscomingtosaveyou #greyhive #outdoors #pnw #mayhemsyndicate #noegos #education #learning #teaching #morethanjustthegun #applyyourself #aresclothing #aresgunteam #violentprofessional

Mapping out a stage isn’t the best way to develop cognitive processing, but it’s the best you can do in a sterile and non-hostile environment such as a range.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Obviously outside of the range, I can’t predict how, where, or what will happen to you. However, what I can do is formulate a β€œprogram” to first and foremost give positive growth with skills in isolation. From there you’ll take those specific skills and integrate them all together in a specific course of fire.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Sometimes you may have to β€œgame” things in order to develop a framework of skills. Afterwards, after substantial work is developed in those areas, you should start building them into problem solving drills. πŸ“· @jay.gunzalezπŸ“· #runenationllc #nooneiscomingtosaveyou #greyhive #education #outdoors #pnw #teaching #learning #knowledge #vertx #morethanjustthegun #mechanics #fundamentals #aresclothing #aresgunteam #violentprofessional

Got to finally use the edgar sherman design sling. It works great its definetly an upgrade from what i had on my rifle. Love that it can fold into itself for storage and deploys quickly when needed. Best of all it doesn't cost an arm and a leg for a multicam black sling πŸ˜‚

@nm_desert_rats with an awesome capture of wildlife evolving. @baersolutions teaching one of his courses on how to fight back against park rangers who dont want you stealing campers food. In all serious though, Drews a great instructor with a lot of knowledge on training, tactics and all sorts of other unique things. He is particular about the gear he choses and im thrilled to have him running ESD slings. Hes a great friend and mentor and im honored to work with him.

Always ask the β€œwhy.” I can’t stress it enough to my students to always ask questions and always know the reasoning behind a certain learned skill.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
My students spend their hard earned money for not only the tuition for my classes, but also on gas, food, ammo, and potential lodging. Not only that, but also on time they could spend working to pay off their house, playing with their kids, or relaxing on their day off.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
I swore to myself after I left the military and decided to pursue this path of education that I would strive to answer the why. If I couldn’t, I’d point them in the direction of someone that could. This is my passion, not something to make quick buck. This is for the long game folks, this is for creating a legacy. πŸ“½ @jay.gunzalezπŸ“½ #runenationllc #nooneiscomingtosaveyou #greyhive #pnw #outdoors #collab #education #askthewhy #adaptordie #training #teaching #giveyoumyall #passion #love #morethanjustapaycheck #happinessovereverything #aresclothing #aresgunteam #violentprofessional #vertx

πŸ“½ @runenationllc - The 2-2-2 drill, and its variations, are great for isolating the skill of driving the platform to the next target. The major learning points for this are:
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
-Lead with your eyes first, then the gun: Many people have a tendency to keep their eyes in the tube/sights when driving the gun therefore contributimg to pre-mature shot break or overdriving the gun and breaking the shot late.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
-Movement with lower body: Many feel the need to be completely upright, therefore leading to β€œturret’ing” the top half of your toros. If you allow your hips to move, you will be more fluid and lack unnecessary torso tension.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”-
-Shot tempo: With consistent practice your tempo should be that of a single 6 round string, not 3 separate 2 round shots.
β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”β€”
Once you learn to break out of your sights on your last shot, you’ll be smooth like butter! πŸ“· @edgarshermandesignπŸ“· #runenationllc #nooneiscomingtosaveyou #outdoors #nh #greyhive #edgarshermandesign #education #learning #teaching #technique #mechanics #aresclothing #aresgunteam #violentprofessional
