In light of my recent post “what exactly do you think you are doing”, I thought that moving up this post from last year would add yet another professionals opinion on the issue of training priorities.
Former SEAL and “Tactical Impact” star Kyle Defoor has a blog going. Go check it out.
I especially like the post Training Balance and How Good is Good Enough?
The first thing you need to do clearly identify your needs of training FOR THE REAL WORLD, such as; carbine, pistol, blade, combatives, physical fitness, tactics. Once you’ve made a list of the what, honestly ask yourself what you really NEED the most and which one you just LIKE to do. Here lies the problem. We (humans) like to practice what we’re good at, and what makes us feel good. Over time this is a recipe for disaster.
Kyle has a lot of good stuff; rifle painting, controlling fear, repairing EoTechs…take a look.
