The Teachers of Staying Alive (Podcast – Season 6, Ballistic Radio Episode 253, May 6th, 2018)

“You have to have enough ego to be invested in what you are teaching and want to do absolutely the best job you can do, but then you also have to be humble enough to realize you often don’t know what you don’t know, and this is a never-ending process of learning, and you are never going to arrive.” — Chuck Haggard


These days there are so many firearms instructors to choose from! Maybe you would like to become a firearms instructor yourself. But what kind of qualities make for a good firearms instructor? How do we view proficiency in teaching firearms vs any other psycho-motor skills coach or instructor?

Chuck Haggard, one of Ballistic Radio’s most prolific guests, joins the show to talk about the qualities of good instructors. In this episode he talks about leadership skills and their value to students and instructors, alike. He shares with us the traits of the leaders who influenced his own learning the most, and gives us the traits and abilities he feels are necessary for every individual to be both a good student and a good firearms instructor.
