Absolutely. I feel that situational awareness is oftentimes underemphasized and underutilized. It's a vital, elemental talent.And the more you can anticipate, the more time you'll buy yourself. Ideally, "reaction time" starts well before you're making the decision to draw. Stay aware.
Don't apologize. Best post on any topic I've read all day (so far).Another part of that video and I'm going to make this brief was that when your face with the situation that you've never been in before your brain will start going through your memories like a little Rolodex looking for an appropriate response to the given situation and if it doesn't find one it will keep going through that Loop looking for "What do I do now?" What Yeager said is that's why we do scenario training. That's why we do "What ifs".
I apologize for this extremely long post
Well conditioned urban dwellers know instinctively to duck at the sound of gun fire. Lesser, complacent dwellers might look up from a cellphone and discount the noise as some rascal with fireworks.
One of the major reasons I train almost daily in Escrima(Filipino Martial Arts - FMA) is that in this martial arts style you start training with weapons and then move on to empty hand training (most martial arts styles are the opposite).You’ll never know until the day comes.
Training and more training..
