In the video below, Tier 1 Citizen admits that “there’s nothing ‘real world’ about the training environment.” That said, the gun guru defends high-speed, low-drag instruction as “stress inoculation.” I suppose that’s true. But what’s also true . . .
Is that [well-structured] force-on-force training is the best “real world” armed self-defense instruction money can buy. IMHO.
FoF is expensive and not entirely realistic. For one thing, all the protective gear doesn’t allow participants to read facial expressions (key to communication). For another, no one gets killed (hopefully), so the stakes aren’t that high.
Anyway, assuming you’ve had armed self-defense training, how valuable was that instruction for a ‘real world’ scenario? Is there any way to measure that?
