“I’d been involved in real violence in my life several times, and never before in training had I felt that kind of pressure.” -Shawn Lupka


How important is being allowed to fail in a controlled environment? Shawn Lupka of Antifragile Training makes his first appearance on the show to discuss with John the experiences that have guided him down the training path he’s followed. From growing up in a rough neighborhood, to getting training in carrying and using a handgun, to some combatives and retention work…and then the experience he had in pressure testing those skills that led him to question it all.


Shawn lays out the basics of why it’s important to regularly practice the skills you learn, how to put together a functioning training group, and the lessons you can learn when you go off the script. Prepare to take notes on this episode!
