A brief description of a training barrel and its use. Not a whole lot to the thing, but it is a great training tool for safe manipulation especially with training partners.
Door flys open and you’re under attack. deal with the attack, the seat belt and exit vehicle. This type of training is how Practical Hapkido differs from many other martial arts. Come join us some time.
Running a rather old, stock Sig P-226, converted to double action only. Decided, rather spontaneously to head down to Universal Shooting Academy and do the steel challenge. This includes all 5 runs of this stage, including my misses. Still working on my speed vs. accuracy.
Many teach a more traditional weapon in their art or system. My Hapkido weapon of choice is the firearm. My Hapkido is practical and geared for the current time and place. America 2014. www.tkd-hapkido.com
Using a taser in simulated knife defensive training can be a real eye opener and a shocking experience. Training at this level is voluntary and I seem to have no shortage of volunteers.
This is one of the scenarios run today at the Tiki VPPG Nov. 9, 2013. Imagine being out to eat with family and friends. When a domestic dispute turns deadly right before your eyes. What would you do? Well it’s always hard to tell until you’re there. Scenario based training can provide a simulated experience […]
Here is a shooting drill I came up with that we worked on this morning. It involved a close target to the rear, move to cover, and then engage four targets with head shot. With the mentality that you either succeed or fail the drill. If you miss that head shot, you failed. The timer […]
Working on firing from what’s called the high 2 position for close targets and then engaging moving targets while closing the distance. Overall it was a good day. Stayed on target, for the most part and speed wasn’t too bad.
This is alot more difficult than it looks. You have the seat belt to deal with not to mention the steering wheel and any other obstacles that might be between the seats and let’s not mention that there is a guy trying to punch you in the face. Yes we know, lock your doors… if […]
This was one of the stages at Universal Shooting Academy’s Defensive Pistol League, Sat 8-27-16. They are always creating stages that challenge the concealed carrier and helps them identify weak areas.
Another stage at Universal Shooting Academy’s Defensive Pistol League. These swingers kill me, even though this was the first time I did not get a penalty shooting them.
One of the stages at Universal Shooting Academy’s Defensive Pistol League. 7-23-16. The stage made you shoot rather quickly. Don’t shoot the good guy in white.
On this stage start with 3 rounds in the mag, and mag on the table, gun on the table with slide open, and as many loose rounds that you want on the table. Engage 3 targets from seated position. Here’s the hook, in order to avoid penalties targets have to have either one in the […]
Engage 2 targets through opening then engage 3 targets through bottom opening
Firearms are a part of our culture and way of life here in America. More and more people are getting their conceal carry permits, but what they are not getting is additional training or even practicing. If you plan on carrying. You owe it to yourself and your community to be proficient with your firearm. […]
What the heck is Scenario Based Environmental Training? Well here is a small taste of what one might expect when attending. One thing for sure. Everyone comes away learning a thing or two. From the beginner to the experienced.
In weapon disarms there is always speculation on holding the weapon when fired and whether or not it really works or if you will be injured in the process. I said I would demonstrate with a 50 cal and as promised, here it is. Because of the slide design the slide did move, but not […]
A small sampling of the training that is done in Practical Hapkido at U.S. Taekwondo Hapkido Martial Arts Center with firearms. Lets keep it practical.
Working on moving while maintaining sight picture and sight alignment along with mag changes. In this drill we limit our round count to 4 per magazine so we experience slide lock.
You would be surprised at what could go wrong in a bad situation. But that’s where training can be very helpful. Dry fire training and accessing of you concealed weapon will go a long way in learning what problems you can run into. As show in this video, even a hoodie string can be a […]
If you’re a concealed carrier, you should be training. This video will provide some tips in dealing with garments and some training concepts. Everybody will be a bit different. Body types, weapon choice, clothing, concealed location. Practice and dry firing can really be helpful in becoming a responsible concealed carrier. Dry fire practice with your […]
When it comes to guns and ones ability to safely and effectively use it. Nothing quite takes the place of some practice. When we do practice we should try and simulate a self defense situation which would include movement and cover. To increase anyone’s proficiency in firearm handling we have to step out of the […]
Out at Universal Shooting Academy in Frostproof Fl. This was their first USA DPL match and this was one of the stages and what a stage it was. Universal Shooting Academy is top notch without a doubt. Firearms are an integral part of my Practical Hapkido
One of the more difficult stages… or at least the fastest.
