Having produced personal defense videos for instructional purposes since the early 2000s, Rob Pincus is a big believer in video as an educational medium. He discusses how you can learn self defense training from video and also discusses some aspects of training you need to get hands-on experience with. Concepts can be understood through video as you would from reading a book. You can also learn about physical skills and comprehend how something is done … but that doesn’t mean you can do it. Self defense training skills will develop faster when practiced regularly.
Student alert! If your defensive firearms instructor is not giving you an integrated system of firearm manipulation techniques but rather a set of unconnected techniques that don't integrate well together, don't reinforce each other, and don't contribute to your efficiency by being consistent with one another, you need to challenge those techniques.Watch Now >>
