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.
