    I would like to see some method for individuals to score themselves in several areas. The objective is to help the individual prioritize their (future) training with OST. For example (and example only, not proposing these as standards) Cooper set a par time for El Presidente. Gabe has set targets for dead lifts, etc. If this were done on-line, the results could be forwarded to OST trainers in the individual areas to help them schedule classes that boost attendance while meeting individual needs.

    NPE courses

    Im thinking stuff for travel where you can't carry, which includes might include really deep concealment of TINY handguns; but more like cane/walking sticks, and improvised weapons (and maybe small knives).

    Who doesn't like a little sneaky sh*t every now and again?

    How can you profit from the status quo, instead of complaining about it?

    I voted more basic classes.


    I haven't been able to train with SI because I can't get away long enough to drive 300 miles to the nearest instructor. I don't know if that would fall under "more affiliates" or such, but you get the idea.

    Plan a vacation around one of the 3-4 day classes. I've done those a couple times now and they've been amazing investments of time and great educations. Gabe's pistol/rifle fighting weeks or team tactics classes come to mind, as does Greg's multi-day CQB classes.

    ETA: Still waiting on Brent to host a multi-day punching dummy class.

    I'm confident you would want more than the basic classes. You'll want to be pushed a bit. The basic classes are mostly manipulations, so if they aren't available locally, get the DVDs and work them dry at home a lot (I'm sure you already do some of that). You can tune up those skills at one of the big ticket classes.

    You are correct in your assumptions.

    That's a good idea. Incidentally, I'm finding getting extended time off is easier for me now than it has been. But classes nearer, or more frequent would be good.

    I don't know what sort of demand for training there has been in the NW, but there you have it. Lol!

    I have driven 500 miles and planned vacations for my classes. The key is you pay for the class then you arecommitted. Yes, I was fortunate to have a good instructor within 300, so I did those too. Figure it out bro and go. You won't regret a minute of it, may even save your life or others.
