I’ve had an exceptionally busy teaching month already and still have one more class scheduled. Fortunately, several of my recent students have posted online After Action Reviews (AARs) of a couple classes. If you are curious about my content. course structure and curriculum, check out the links below:
Melody talks about the issues brought up during scenario training with me at TDI’s ECQ class…
“And therein lies the importance of thinking about these scenarios and attending force-on-force and the kind of training we worked over the weekend. Until you are there and experiencing the adrenaline and wondering what you are supposed to do and afraid and, yes, a big panicked, you have no idea how well you will judge the scenario, when to use lethal force and when it may no longer be justified.
These classes not only help you learn about techniques of self defense but set you up to better judge situations. You learn how you can work them and when they may be over while also preparing you to continue to fight if need be or search for more threats. They construct patterns of behavior that are within legal boundaries (or at least they should!) and help you identify lethal force moments.
They also help you identify when you have fought yourself to a position of no longer needing that force.
If you haven’t taken a class like that yet, I recommend you go out there and find one!”
John’s comprehensive review of the same ECQ class and its curriculum…
“Overall I really, really enjoyed the class. It really enforced the need for some empty hand skills, the off-side carry of a fixed blade and really knowing how to run your gun in a variety of environments.”
