2016 Year in Review: Training

| December 30, 2016 | 2 Comments

Due to some financial concerns, I did less training this year compared to the last few years. In 2016, I attended 196.5 hours of professional training. This does not include practice time at home, or live fire “practice” at a shooting range. It does not include the jiu-jitsu training I’m getting three times a week. Here’s […]

Please go back and read my post before continuing, as this article won’t make as much sense otherwise. Summary After reading Rob’s book and doing more research, […]

3×3 Review: QSI Training August 2016 Partner Tactics

| August 9, 2016 | 0 Comments

QSI Training’s Partner Tactics class represents the top of their curriculum. It incorporates almost everything they teach and then adds another person to the mix. As usual, Erik Pakieser and his team did a good job extending what students have already learned and applying it to the focus of more advanced classes. Some of the material is specific […]

Last Saturday I attended the vehicle defense class taught by Erik Pakieser of QSI Training. I have a good time at all of the classes I attend, but the vehicle class is the most fun. I’ve been training with Erik for quite some time, and this is the third year I’ve taken his vehicle class. […]

3×3 Review: QSI Training Emergency Trauma Care Class

| June 30, 2016 | 1 Comments

When properly and narrowly defined, almost anyone can be trained to administer effective trauma care in case of an emergency — violent or otherwise.

This […]

That’s What She said: Strong Hand or Super-Strong Hand?

We hosted a trauma class two weeks ago. One of my favorite moments was a story the instructor (Robert Schoening of LHGK – he’s fantastic – take his class if you get the opportunity) told about how some students bristled at the term “weak side” and asserted that “they only had strong sides…but one side was […]
