Your personal goal - Be able to apply the fundamentals on demand. As a result you will not have to use your conscience mind while shooting. You can let accuracy happen. By letting accuracy happen, speed will become the by-product. Freeing up your mind and allowing yourself to receive input from the gun as you work your way through the different challenges is were speed comes from, it just occurs when everything else is working together in concert. Performance through Fundamentals

"It is my objective to give the student a better set of fundamental skills to assist them with advancing in action shooting sports. This will be accomplished through dry fire and live fire drills. Instructors will give students feedback both positive and negative so it affords the student the benefit of learning or unlearning techniques. I want each student leaving the class with an understanding on how to practice."
