Training Scars

Training scars...we all have them.

Your Tactical Training Scenario…Men in the Bushes

Imagine the following scenario... It’s 9pm and you are taking your dog for a walk around your neighborhood. You live in a “safe” area and you have walked your dog on this route every night for years without a problem. It’s dark, and as you walk you notice some shapes moving in the bushes ahead of you.
