I thought you might find interesting my recent article on skill training, because it quotes extensively from Hock Hochheim’s post “6 myths of police training that inhibit effective learning,” which, in turn, is based on Robert Bragg Jr.’s presentation on skill instruction at the latest conference of the International Law Enforcement Educators & Trainers Association. Robert Bragg Jr. is the manager of fitness, force, and firearms training for the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission’s academy. In his presentation he criticizes myths he says undermine police officers’ ability to grasp and retain combat skills. Read about each myth and about rational training and post your comments at stadion.com/six-myths-of-skill-training-vs-rational-training-know-how/. You are welcome to also post your comment here, at the end of this self-defense tip.
