Walk, Run, Fly…

We’ve had a few questions as of late, thanks to WRSA’s (http://westernrifleshooters.wordpress.com/) mention of our upcoming Primitive Adaptation Skills – 1 class on 18 May, most of which fall in the category of: “Are you going to have some tactics classes?”

Short answer: Yes.

DTG staff decided to hold the PAS-1 seminar first, because long experience teaches that if one cannot keep oneself out of the elements (warm & dry), hydrated, and rested, tactical knowledge doesn’t really matter that much, all things being equal, because of the relatively fast deterioration of strength, motor skills, and thought process of the man/woman in a SHTF situation without adequate shelter, water, and rest.

We chose to start with what we believe is ‘the’ cornerstone of a good foundation: PAS-1. It’s the ‘walk’ stage.

The beginner as well those who’ve not had any ‘hands on’ for some time are taken through the basics in a relatively adverse environment for a short time (approximately 30 hours). Enough time to get a good feel for what needs to be mastered and a short enough time that work days aren’t lost.

The ‘run’ stage will start with the offering of Basic Individual Skills and SUT; yet another cornerstone of skill mastery. IS/SUT will consist of various day-long or multi-day training sessions (with PAS application requirements).

Should we offer IS/SUT soon? Only you have the answer.
