This is a collaborative class between Tim Herron and AJ Zito, built entirely around one concept:

Showing you how to practice.

We can give you the knowledge, but at the end of the day YOU have to make you better, and we will show you how.

The first step is learning how to focus your time, energy, and ammunition the most effectively. Suitable for any level of shooter, the Practice with Purpose workshop is designed to help you recognize areas of potential, and build practice routines for targeted, purposeful improvement. We’ll cover the importance of keeping a practice log, regimenting your practice, and analyzing your practice data. Practice doesn’t have to be ammo intensive – we’ll discuss which skills can be improved with dry-fire, and how to use live-fire validation to verify the results of your practice. Students will learn the difference between performance and diagnostic drills, and progress to learning how to break down and convert those drills into practice tools. This is the class that’s going to bridge the gap between your knowledge, and your performance.
