“Upgraded” box/combat/square breathing

I’ve got a quick breathing drill I want you to try. It’s a variation on “box,” “square,” or “combat” breathing. These methods normally have you breathe in for 4 seconds, hold your breath 4 seconds, breathe out for 4 seconds, and hold your breath with empty lungs for 4 seconds. We’re going to tweak it…

Making E-Type Targets Reactive For T4E Paintball Markers, UTM, Airsoft, Simunition, BB’s, Pellets and BlazePod

I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately about how I make the E-Type (Plastic mil/DOD torso targets) reactive targets that I use with less-than-lethal training tools like T4E paintball markers, UTM, Airsoft, Simunition, BB’s, Pellets AND how to use them with BlazePod flash reflex and reaction lights…so I made a video 🙂 There’s a…

My favorite self-defense tool where guns aren’t allowed…

I’ve got a great training tip for you today that could tip the scales far enough in your favor that you DON’T need to shoot in a self-defense situation. You’ve seen my videos where I demonstrate drawing and hitting target in under a second… But when I’m out and about, I don’t see my Glock…

Last Weekend With 450+ Women Shooters…and why they’re the future of shooting.

Visual Patience for faster hits—how to take your time and be quick about it…

Talk about a contradiction in terms! How can you be patient in a hurry? And what is visual patience? Visual patience is simply waiting until you can see to take action. If you’re doing sighted shooting, it means waiting until you can see your sights to press the trigger…sometimes clearly, sometimes not. It means waiting…

Can Balance Training REALLY Help Me Shoot Better?

You may be wondering how improving your balance could POSSIBLY help you shoot better. It makes sense that better balance could help someone shoot better on the move, but how could it help you shoot faster, tighter groups when you’re standing still?

Defending Against The “Illusion of Competency”

This may strike a nerve, but it’s a really important thing to understand. One of the biggest enemies of real-world performance is the belief that people have that they are “good enough” when they only really have a fraction of the skill they think they do. This is an issue with every skill, but it’s…

Light Based Dry Fire That’s Better Than Live Fire

I’ve got a cool video of a light-based drill that will show you (again) how dry fire training can be so much more effective than live fire training when it’s done correctly. I just shot it quick yesterday with my iPad propped up on a shelf and did a quick edit today…nothing fancy…just some REALLY…

Christmas 2020–My Favorite Things

For a few years, Glenn Beck used to have a Christmas episode called “My Favorite Things” where he told his audience about what he was giving his friends and loved ones for Christmas. I’m fortunate to have half a dozen of my products recommended on his radio and TV shows…not as ads, but as gift…
