A note from the instructors:
"Ok, I've learned a lot in *insert class here*, now if I just knew what and how to practice? How do I put it all together?"
If you've ever asked those questions, THIS is the class that answers that great mystery!
Building upon the “Practice with Purpose” curriculum, Train for Mastery is an extended class, designed to teach you how to practice effectively, and train towards a high-level shooting goal. In addition to all topics covered in the 1-day “Practice with Purpose” class, students will also learn about advanced movement and exercises, building their own effective drills from match data, more in-depth analysis of their practice logs, and advanced drill and exercise breakdown techniques.
