Many of us are familiar with rolling our feet heel to toe and keeping the knees bent to steady the rifle while shooting on the move. Here we breakdown the body mechanics even further with some students on the range. Walking with a wider stance and/or feet on an angle will make your hips sway left to right as you walk making your sites sway across the target side to side. By keeping you feet straight and walking with your feet narrow (like walking a tight rope) you will immediately see a reduction in sway while you move. Hope that helps!
In this video, Rich shares the importance of the natural point of aim.
In the chaos of an active shooter attack or similar situation we may find ourselves trapped in certain sections of a building or structure. At this point we might decide to establish a fight position but we may not be out of options yet. Another option for evading is going through the walls. In many cases the interior walls of newer construction building are made of sheetrock or like materials that are easily breached giving you the opportunity to advance to a new section of the floor and possibly evading the attacker.

Working a simple but effective shoulder mobility drill today. Regardless if you have had a shoulder injury in the past or not, this series is a great way to keep your upper body fluid and to maintain strength. Our focus throughout this exercise is to maintain contact with the wall from start to finish, making sure not to arch our back or extend our neck away from the wall in order to compensate for lack of mobility and strength in our shoulders. Focus in on opening your chest while maintaining contact with the wall with slow and steady arm movements.
This is just one of many mobility exercises we can do. Join now and get instant access to the rest of our extensive training library.
