HOLY this is epic. Center of mass is apparently for amateurs:
Oh and this is another gem from the YouTube description. Why he doesn’t use “blue guns”:
There are many reasons as to why we do not utilize “Blue Guns” for our training purposes that are not listed here. However, we do not use them for the following purposes
Biochemical – When facing the “business end” of any weapon system the body will produce a response: “Fight or Flight”. It is then and only then that we obtain the opportunity to truely explore the varible that matter most – “willingness to fight”. Biochemically the body will change its composition [cortisol (stress) levels, dopamine, epinephrine (adrenaline), norepinephrine (brain, body, action)]. By working in this manner, we at VODA seek to effectively take small steps to help rewire the clients neurotransmitters thus, increasing the likelihood of survival.
Repetition & Muscle Memory – Good luck cycling a slide on a “Blue Gun” or nearly any training pistol worth anything for that matter. At VODA we are big on building efficiency through continuous repetition and muscle memory. Whether cycling the slide or loading the cylinder, pressing the trigger, or aligning sights on a real human subject, there is not training pistol that will give you that. Why? Because training pistols simply do not have the same physical attributes of a actual firearm; what they lack are the character, feel, and authenticity of an actual firearm. Like Coke-A-Cola: “There’s Nothing Like The Real Thing”.
Realism – Why train different that you fight? Even more important, why train different than you fight then expect to perform at optimum levels when it really counts? Even though you are training with a “Blue Gun” or training pistol and you may simulate that with all your heart following the “Safety Rules” (which are meant to be broken to a degree) your brain knows it’s not a real gun thus, it will act accordingly for purposes of efficiency. It should be noted that our Force on Force work is truly one of a kind.
So ya, hit him up by all means and have your mind blown by VODA Consulting if you think you can take the heat. LOL I love how he has a “Jay-Z – Dynasty” intro sample on loop on his website to set the mood. SHIT I’M SO AMPED RIGHT NOW.
Thoughts? VODA is such a movement, amirite guys? Look out Travis Haley, Chris Costa, Larry Vickers etc…
