Your thoughts on this training?

It seems like fun and I can see its merits. Still, I'm not sure about it... I'd give it a "shot" though...

It has its merits for sure.

I can see some minor flaws such as the just side stepping into "cover" as they call it. Finding cover in any urban US place is getting harder and harder. Less and less places use sturdy consruction like brick and concrete. Walls just provide concealment, which I will be taking a knee behind.

Other then that I actually like the idea of that course. Reminds me of some of the stuff I did in the Corps.

Seeing how far back they are leaning suggests to me that there is not a good foundation. Until you can perform the basics you won't be able to perform the basics under stress.

The music is stupid. They look stupid. So you stand behind a wall and then fully expose yourself to shoot, disregarding use of wall. All this after some halfass crosstraining. I think some of them should have spent more time crosstraining first. Tim Burke has taken alot of classes, but he is just more PC in his remarks!

Yeah... Fully exposing yourself to shoot makes absolutely no sense to me...
