Doing it for real is absolutely necessary. You can't learn the footwork from your seat. But diagramming the scene John Madden-style and using different colored markers to show the movement of different individuals would help speed up the understanding of some of the material, and ultimately allow for more time to actually do it live.

    I did make some adjustments to this class, I added more of the one man stuff where as I mainly addressed it the first time. I don't like it because as you have seen it sucks to try to do it by yourself. I do think "sand tabling" the concepts could add some value to the class and maybe bring visual learners up to speed a little faster and may add that to the next one.

    And I definitely won't be bringing my wife along to any of his classes. that's kinda hurtful bro, I know how and when to be socially acceptable.... ish..But you do see a change as he hits his material. I am an advocate of seeking out specific instructors for specific skills. And Greg is an ideal instructor for this skill set.
    Thanks for the kind words

    I also now understand why some guys have a chalk stick in their war bag--for marking rooms as cleared or not. I had seen chalk sticks in photos I have come across of other people's kit, but never understood what it was for. Personally, I'd rather use a bright crayon or magic marker. If the situation is important enough that I'm clearing a house and marking the rooms, I really don't care whether I mess up some paint. I'd rather have a clear and legible mark.
    I was actually considering a cattle marking crayon for this, it's basically a big grease paint (like camo stick) that comes in different colors.

    I know that you have the emotional strength to stand up under criticism. After all, I saw you deal with rejection from that waitress as if it was just another day.

    I just learned of a new product, whose worth I would not have appreciated before this class: a very sleek night light.

    Are night lights a good thing or bad thing? We have had those kinds of lights for sale at work for years lol. Most are built right into the receptical.
