Range of Opportunity

Use of force continuum

Thinking more about yesterday’s post, the place where we do our training influences also what we’re learning. I know going into the dojo that I’m going to learn punches, kicks and throws, and I know walking onto the range I’m going to work on solving lethal force threats.

What if we didn’t know what we were training for until we got to the training site? What if a range was set up so that people could train with airsoft and/or empty-hand in one side, and live-fire on the other? What would that do to how we integrate concealed carry and empty-hand techniques?
