Young,

Well said!

If you’re going to half-ass your training you may as well not bother. In the heat of “battle”, people will fall into muscle memory; you literally WILL fight the way you train. That’s a scary thought if you’re not giving 100% each and every time.

Additionally, you would not believe how many people I see who carry some “magic bullet” like a pocket knife or pepper spray but have never even trained one time on how they might deploy it in an actual situation. They treat it more like a talisman than a weapon. “Oh, I’m safe… I have spray.” Yeah, in the bottom of your purse under six pounds of makeup… good luck with that.
