Gun Training Personalized to How You Learn Best

November 28th, 2012

Whenever I am trying to learn a new skill, like when I am getting trained at a new job, taking a dance lesson or trying to get better with my guitar playing, I know that I learn best by doing. I learn best by doing because I am a kinesthetic learner. I need hands on training in order for me to really get a concept and to remember what I learned.

Some people learn by seeing. These people are called visual learners. If Bob is a visual learner, he needs to see someone perform a task in order to learn it. If Bob sees someone do task A, Bob will be more likely to understand and remember how to perform task A himself. I can get something out of visual learning; it definitely helps strengthen what I learn through kinesthetic learning, but visual learning alone is not enough for me. For some people, however, this is all they need and kinesthetic learning is totally unnecessary.

Other people learn by hearing. Auditory learners can listen to someone explain how a task is done and then are usually able to do the task themselves. To me, personally, this type of learning is like trying to squeeze pennies out of a paper dollar… it can be done, technically, if you go to the bank or find someone that has change for a dollar, but it doesn’t come easily and will have to be redone every time a new task needs doing (or a new dollar needs to turn into pennies). Some other people thrive on this type of learning.

It has been shown a number of times that no matter what type of learner you are, you can benefit from aspects of all of them, with some exceptions, of course. A combination of the three types of learning is the best bet when trying to learn something, especially something really important. So what qualifies as something really important? How about something that could save your life, and if done improperly, could be fatal? I am talking about gun training. There is no question about it; guns can be dangerous and threatening IF YOU DON’T USE THEM PROPERLY. It is vital that if you are going to use a gun, you learn how to safely use it by getting the best gun training you can find, like the gun training offered by Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute in Pahrump, Nevada. If you get this gun training, guns can be a tool of self defense and can save your life.

The gun training provided by Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight combines all three forms of learning, so students get the best possible learning experience suited to each individual’s needs. Ignatius Piazza combines gun training lectures for the auditory learners, exciting shooting demonstrations for the visual learners, and intense hands on gun training for the kinesthetic learners, to help create an environment that will provide the greatest understanding and the highest memory retention. With this recipe for success, students of Front Sight learn more, understand more and keep more in their memories than students of other gun training schools.

Front Sight Caters to Your Learning Style

May 24th, 2012

How do you learn best? I learn best by doing, putting me in the kinesthetic learning category. Some of my friends learn by seeing, making them visual learners. Other friends learn by hearing, making them audio learners. Some people combine two or three of the learning styles to learn and retain information. I have found that the best possible way for most people to absorb the most information is to incorporate a bit of each of the three main learning styles. Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, the gun training school in Pahrump, Nevada, uses all three learning styles to train students, which greatly increases the learning curve. This is just one of the many reasons that Front Sight is the best gun training school around. They can cater to anyone’s personal learning style, no matter how that certain student learns best.

For audio learners, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, the founder and director of Front Sight, has put together interesting lectures to include in his gun training program. The gun training lectures include important information, such as gun safety, how to choose a gun, how to prepare for the emotional aspect of using a gun for self defense, how to handle the legal side of using a gun and many, many more topics. While audio learners get a great amount of information out of the Front Sight lectures, so do people that learn differently. I have a very short attention span when it comes to lectures. Seriously, I was the kid in class that sat with my lap top, acting like I was taking notes, but I was really on Facebook and instant messaging my friends. However, in my first gun training course at Front Sight, I was wide eyed and open eared. The Front Sight gun training lectures not only kept my interest… I actually looked forward to them. Ignatius Piazza did a phenomenal job putting together the Front Sight lectures.

For visual learners, Ignatius Piazza included gun training demonstrations in his program at Front Sight. Here, gun training instructors show students how to use a gun for self defense and how NOT to use a gun, in order to fully explain gun safety and how a gun should be properly handled. I found the demonstrations at Front Sight to be awe inspiring. They definitely helped me understand how things should and should not be done, which was reflected in my shooting. I know that I would not have gotten the results that I did without the Front Sight demonstrations.

For kinesthetic learners like me, Ignatius Piazza included tons of shooting range time, so students could really get a feel for how a gun is supposed to feel in a number of different situations. Practicing shooting in a safe and controlled environment, while using scenario based training to help students learn how to handle difficult situations, like gun malfunctions or having multiple attackers, had an intense effect on my gun training experience. I got to shoot more at Front Sight than I thought I ever would in a gun training course, which made me more and more comfortable using the gun. In turn, I became a MUCH better shooter.

Front Sight is great for many reasons, but the way the gun training curriculum is put together really sticks out. Front Sight is the best place to receive gun training, no matter how you learn best.

More Than Shooting a Gun: A More Complete Gun Training Course

September 23rd, 2011

What do you learn at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute?

You learn more than just how to shoot a gun; that is for sure.

The things taught at Front Sight far surpass the curriculum at other gun training schools. Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and director of Front Sight, wanted to make sure that at Front Sight, you will get the best and most complete gun training you can find. Unlike other gun training schools, you will walk away from Front Sight a different person: more confident, more aware and a better shooter than you ever thought you could become, even with years and years of practice… and you will achieve this all in a few short days. It may sound too good to be true, but before your first day of gun training at Front Sight has completed, you will understand.

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute first and foremost concentrates on gun safety. Front Sight is focused on keeping you and your loved ones safe, so Ignatius Piazza’s gun training courses are incredibly safe. The gun training instructors will teach you how to handle a gun properly and how to increase your safety while holding it. During my first self defense gun training course, I felt safe one hundred percent of the time. I went to a shooting range after attending Front Sight and immediately noticed that barely anyone knew the first thing about gun safety. I was on edge for most of the time spent there, due to how these people were carrying themselves and carrying their weapons. You will be glad to know that the practices of Front Sight’s staff will make you feel comfortable, and teach you how to be safe, during and after your gun training.

During a typical day of gun training at Front Sight, you will experience many things, including hands on tactical gun training, watching shooting demonstrations and listening to gun training lectures. Wait, lectures? Before you argue and say that lectures are boring, you should know that Ignatius Piazza’s staff members will give lectures that will get you thinking and prepare your mind for what you are about to learn. You will gain a new perspective on gun training, the use of guns for self defense and the life that comes along with it. You will learn not only riveting things about guns and gun training, but you will also learn how to AVOID using a gun in the first place. Front Sight emphasizes the fact that you only want to use a gun if it is your last and only option. I found it quite enjoyable and refreshing to learn different self defense techniques that I could use before presenting my weapon. I also found it interesting to learn about the combat mindset, the emotional side effects of using a gun and how to deal with the legal aspects of having to shoot a gun.

Many people hear that Front Sight includes lectures and they immediately shy away from the gun training course. But let me tell you, I think that the lectures may have been my favorite part of my gun training at Front Sight. I was so impressed and eager to keep learning, because Ignatius Piazza expanded my idea of gun training and made me realize that gun training is more than just learning how to shoot a gun. Front Sight really is the most complete gun training I have found.

Gun Training For 50,000

September 23rd, 2011

Training almost fifty thousand students in the span of a year, Front Sight Firearms Training Institute ranks number one in the gun training industry throughout the world. Founder and director, Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, has spent much time, effort and funds to create the best gun training school in the world. Today, Front Sight is a place where people can come together and take self defense gun training courses, practice competitive shooting and learn combat gun use. The wide variety of gun training courses include all levels of gun training, so every student can feel comfortable in his or her own gun training class.

Ignatius Piazza designed his gun training program at Front Sight to emulate the best qualities of the gun training schools where he trained, but to leave out the negative aspects and anything else that was less than great. Thus, Ignatius Piazza ended up with Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, a perfect blend of all of the good and none of the bad. Front Sight’s gun training courses cover all types of learning styles, as to cater to many different types of people.

Audio learners get to listen to and participate in active lectures pertaining to gun training, gun safety, the legal side of gun use, The Combat Mindset, The Color Code of Mental Awareness and much, much more. Visual learners appreciate that the gun training instructors at Front Sight demonstrate each exercise and idea thoroughly and repetitively, so the students can see how each drill is carried out. In addition to seeing the correct way to use a gun, the Front Sight gun training instructors will also show how NOT to use a gun. (But don’t worry; they clearly explain when they are showing what not to do!) And of course, kinesthetic learners like myself get to participate in hands on tactical gun training such as stationary target practice, shooting a moving target, diagnosing and fixing gun malfunctions, night gun training, home invasion scenarios and even a shooting competition among other Front Sight students. Each type of learning style is emphasized in the gun training courses. This greatly increases the amount of information that is stored in each Front Sight student, which increases the effectiveness of the course itself.

I don’t know about you, but I find much more value in a gun training course (or any course, for that matter) from which I actually retain a lot of information, as opposed to a course where I only learn things to store in short term memory. The gun training courses at Front Sight are created to be stored in your long term memory… meaning that the information will be more readily at hand when you need it.

It is no wonder that Front Sight trains almost fifty thousand students in a year and is constantly growing. Every year, more and more students attend Front Sight… this is no coincidence. As soon as you attend your first gun training course with Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight, you will truly see and understand why.

The Chronicles of Front Sight: My Experience, Part Eight

September 12th, 2011

I told you that Front Sight Firearms Training Institute offers competitive gun training. Do I mean that Front Sight’s rates are competitive against other gun training schools? Well, of course they are… but that’s not what I am talking about here. Do I mean that Front Sight’s gun training is way better than any other gun training school in the world? Sure it is… but that is not what I am talking about here either. I am talking about actual competitive gun training… as in gun training for competitive shooting.

In my first Four Day Defensive Handgun Training Course at Front Sight, I got to participate in a shooting competition. Many people will think that this just is not necessary; that it is training to shoot for sport rather than self defense. I thought that at first, too. But let me explain something to you.

You stand on the firing line with one other person. You each have a certain number of targets to shoot, all placed at various distances. Your goal is to knock all of the targets down before the other guy does. Sounds simple enough, right? But then you realize that you have got about twenty or so other people watching you, including three Front Sight gun training instructors that are standing almost over your shoulder, calling the shots and announcing winners… and the NOT winners. If THAT doesn’t teach you how to shoot quickly AND effectively while under stress, I don’t know what does.

Up to this point in my Front Sight gun training from Dr. Ignatius Piazza, I had only had to compete against myself. Add another person to the mix and it surely changes things. Unfortunately, I let my nerves get to me and ended up getting creamed… but it taught me a giant lesson. SHOOTING WHILE UNDER STRESS GREATLY CHANGES EVERYTHING.

I was stressed and nervous, so my presentation speed slowed, leaving me less time to beat the other guy to the shots. My hands were shaking, so my accuracy suffered, leaving me to miss my targets. I watched the other guy’s targets fall on every perfect shot, increasing my stress level and decreasing my focus. What if it had been a real gunfight? My presentation speed was slowed, leaving the bad guy more time to take me down. My accuracy was off, giving the bad guy more chances to get me. He was calm and his shots were perfect, which could have been the shots to hit me.

Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight opened my eyes to what real life self defense shooting involves. I learned first hand the way it feels to be in a gunfight, while in a safe and controlled environment, so if it were to happen in real life, I will be way more prepared than I would have been without this shooting competition. Over the rest of my gun training course, my Front Sight instructors helped me gain and keep focus, increase my confidence and reduce my stress level, so, by the end of my four days at Front Sight, my hands were firm and steady.

THAT, my friends, was severely helpful… especially in the personalized hostage situation at the end of the course… I just might feel like talking about that in The Chronicles of Front Sight: My Experience, Part Nine.
