Back to Basics - Triumph Systems

When is the last time you repetitiously performed a seemingly mindless task over and over again?  Think about it. Something as basic as drawing from your concealed location and engaging a target twice at 15 feet?  Being proficient at this versus through the motion could be a split-second need to walk away from a violent attack versus otherwise.  

Now I say ‘basic’ but really this is a sequence action that when performed efficiently looks basic, but how easy will this be if it’s something you have to think about?  In moments like this, where the scorecard is not pointed at a target, this must be drilled into your DNA so that you respond.

This is why even the most elite military and police teams practice these seamlessly mindless tasks over and over again.  We call it ‘back to basics.  The next time you’re at the range practicing with moving target systems or turning target systems, consider this. Also, remember that repetition leads to muscle memory; muscle memory leads to instinct, and instinct is the ability to make the right decision before you can articulate how you arrived at that decision.

Train hard and stay frosty.
