The Image Based Decisional Drills class stems from the Image Based Decisional Drills learning system. This class offers personal guides to help strengthen your decision process, diagnose what’s happening, and make the correction. With the use of an interactive presentation and a “hands on” prop table, we will guide you to good decisions and then encourage you to PRACTICE THOSE DECISIONS!
We will measure your decisional process right off the bat with images on the screen and a 10 second timer. A FUN WAY TO GET YOUR GEARS TURNING.
We will go over the 8 most common decisions and the importance of the less common 9th option.
Each option is discussed in detail. We will visits the of pros and cons, why proxemics are so important, distance relative decisions, capability, tool cycling, learning to “see more”, recognizing changes in your environment, pre-assault cues, and so much more.
We will move past discussions to HANDS ON training with practicing with inert (water) pepper spray units, understanding proxemics, verbal commands focusing on ASK, TELL & MAKE, 911 calls, and more.
We will use our custom and unique IBDD OPTION CARDS to help you make decisions quickly, plus learn a few techniques to add to your “tool box”.
Are you a good witness? What is your moral compass? Do you have altered perceptions? What is your arousal level and at what point can you work through the adrenaline rush and confusion?
We will crawl, walk, run, and then sprint with quick cognitive stacking of decisions and tool cycling.
Recognition-prime decision (RPD) is a model of how people make quick, effective decisions when faced with complex situations. In this model, the decision maker is assumed to generate a possible course of action, compare it to the constraints imposed by the situation, and select the first course of action that is not rejected. RPD has been described in diverse groups including trauma nurses, fireground commanders, chess players, and stock market traders. It functions well in conditions of time pressure, and in which information is partial and goals poorly defined. The limitations of RPD include the need for extensive experience among decision-makers (in order to correctly recognize the salient features of a problem and model solutions) and the problem of the failure of recognition and modeling in unusual or misidentified circumstances. It appears, as discussed by Gary A. Klein in Sources of Power, to be a valid model for how human decision-makers make decisions. READ IT!
People have a hard time managing distances so in IBDD we will touch on pairing the decisional process with the lack of time and managing space. We need to think about how fast violence happens, limited choices and making the BEST decision based on the space and time available.
Image Based Decisional Drills will help teach you to you assess the situation using a mental simulation for a plausible course of action, allowing you to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the strategies in the content of the scenario. You may experience altered perceptions, like auditory exclusion, stalling, embellishment, and more.
As your own first responder, you are responsible for a wide array of skill sets. Seeing, recognizing, and believing danger is the first task. Having a plan for avoidance, deselection, and escalation are next. The first time you have to use verbal commands, put an object between you and another person, deal with a nuisance, identify a possible threat in the dark, or use non-lethal or lethal force should NOT be when your safety is on the line. You MUST practice all of these skills ahead of time.
There are very few training exercises for the private citizen that focus on making lethal, less than lethal and non-lethal decisions quickly. Image Based Decisional Drills are intended to fill the gap in learning how to make decisions using images to provoke a response, decide which TOOL to use, then ACT on that decision. From the time a bad guy chooses you, you will have a very limited amount of time to make a decision. THEY choose how and when. Your actions need to be confident, quick, and decisive.
- Visual cueing, pre-need decision making, tool cycling, distance management, and strategy changes that can be practiced on or off the range.
- Pressure testing under realistic time constraints with feedback for improvement.
- IBDD can be beneficial ON or OFF the range. The actual mechanics of shooting can be practiced separately while the IBDD drills will help with tool handling and selection, therefore a plastic trainer, or SIRT training pistol is a suitable substitute.
- When you work in a group you not only get the experience of your own scenario but you get to mentally work through theirs as well.
- We use SIRTs (laser training pistol) for immediate feedback.
All levels of experience are welcome. The benefits are the same for everybody. The more experience you have, the more “tools” can be introduced. If you have training in additional areas of self protection like jacks, saps, movement, edged weapons, etc. then add these to your scenario. Also, your cognitive stacking may be quicker and easier so challenge yourself!
