2018 CLASS DATES:

In defensive and competitive shooting, speed and accuracy are everything. The faster you go, the less accurate you become forcing the shooter to compromise speed for precision. High Speed Marksmanship will teach you the skills required to break your current shooting plateau and take you to a new level. Speed shooting and world record breaking competitive shooter JJ Racaza instructs this technical handgun class that will help you gain speed through efficiency while maintaining the highest degrees of marksmanship.

This course covers principles of accuracy and speed, methodologies for improving the draw stroke, shooting efficiency, managing weapon recoil, and harnessing anticipation to proactively drive the gun into position for a follow-up shot. Dry techniques and live fire drills are used to improve movement, accuracy and speed that focus on weapon presentation, grip, trigger technique, and sight picture. Baseline scores are taken at the beginning of the class and drills are run against the clock to track your progress and improvement throughout the day.
