Developing Force on Force Training Programs with Erik Pakieser 2017 3×3 Review

| April 12, 2017 | 0 Comments

Erik Pakieser gave his lecture “Developing Force on Force Training Programs” twice at the 2017 Rangemaster Polite Society Tactical Conference, and I was pleased to attend the second session.

I was present for one of Erik’s first force on force classes. It was held in a gym. We did a lot of the same types of FoF drills I’d experienced from other instructors. The class was good, and gave us opportunities to experience some things under pressure, such as movement, drawstroke, etc.

However, it wasn’t until Erik’s program pivoted into scenario-based training that things really took off. Students are now able to practice all aspects of the pre-, in-, and post-encounter phases in environments that are meaningful and representative of their daily lives.

It’s definitely changed how I’ve trained, and as the years tick by I try to do as much “opposed” training as possible.

Here’s my 3×3 review of Erik’s lecture, where I discuss the top 3 things covered in class, the top 3 things I learned, and my top 3 action items.

I was the only non-instructor in this lecture, so my perspective (and my history with the QSI program) means this review is a little different from the others.
