    You are giving away A LOT of training knowledge for free. Socialist Pig-Dog.

    Seriously, this is always good material to hear when you're teaching, I hope everyone absorbs it.
    Touching on Sonny's comment of spending 95% training for the last 5%, do a search on a Public Safety risk management expert Gordon Graham. In his matrix, this would fall in the High Risk/Low Frequency category. This usually becomes the most dangerous place, and why the last 5% is SO important.

    No doubt, thanks for taking the time to write this excellent article; I am going to print it out and distribute (with the appropriate citations of course).


    "You don't know what you don't know," this is both an affront to the ego and a provocation to the spirit.

    B+,
    The point though was that completely ignoring the first 95% is what generally leads to folks mysteriously finding themself in the last 5%. If they'd spent more time in the first 95% then the last 5 might have looked a bit differnt.

    Most places teach you to "be aware" and "Shoot well".......that is like showing you the eastern rim of the canyon and the western rim.... and NONE of the canyon.

    There is a lot more to it than just the very beginning and the very end. There is a lot to the prefight recogniton of problem and positioning that is rarely if ever covered. And let me repeat.... I didn't invent this stuff. But I feel pretty confident that I have made it a little easier to retain and use by applying the "PESTS EAT FAST " structure to it.

    Great article Randy!

    Randy covered a lot of this material in a DPS class I took with him about two and half years ago. I have some of this same stuff scribbled in a notebook somewhere.

    One of the things that makes this so good is that it is accessible and achievable material even for the relatively inexperienced or beginners to the self-defense world.
    Witty signature on backorder.

    I feel an overwhelming need to jump on the "what a fantastic article" bandwagon. This kind of well-thought-out and beautifully presented knowledge is exactly what keeps me checking WT every day, even though I almost never post. I saved this article for frequent rereading, and sent it along (with appropriate citations) to a few others who'll benefit from it. Thank you, Randy!

But putting all three together is a surefire recipe for disaster.

    Thanks again.

    The reason I put people last is because you can get into plenty of trouble by YOURSELF by going stupid places and doing stupid things. Hanging with stupid people just seals your fate even farther....

    Well, dang... Randy, you got dayve to use one of his 4.5 posts per year. That's something !

    No, seriously, excellent article, very well conveyed.

    I second the nomination for sticky-dom.
