Professional Coaching for the Competitive and Defensive Shooter

"I began shooting in 2010, after a lengthy career in auto cross racing. I loved shooting and wanted to improve, but got stuck in the b-class rut with no light at the end of the tunnel. I practiced what I thought I should be practicing - spending hours at the range, burning through 1,000 rounds or more, and setting up whole stages that I'd repeat with very little progress. In 2012 I was fortunate enough to meet a few great mentors who opened my eyes to the things I'd been doing wrong and - most importantly - how to practice properly. After that, the pieces fell into place. 2 years later, I finally reached my goal of becoming a high-level USPSA shooter by designing targeted practices for myself, isolating skills, and using fewer rounds in a better way."
