It’s Complicated (SEASON 8, EPISODE 329)

“…That is what we’re trying to simulate in Force on Force. There’s so much more to self-defense than just pulling a trigger.” -Erik Pakieser

John and Erik discuss Force on Force training and some of Erik’s lessons learned from watching numerous students complete scenarios.
