0124 – Extend Your Training Resources

I used to spend a good amount of time away from my family training.  I still do when I’m teaching, but I have reduced the amount of time I am away from my family while I improve my skills.  At first I did this the good old fashioned way, I simply reduced my training time.

When my kids were born:

  • I just didn’t train as much as I used to
  • I enjoyed being with my family
  • When I was away, I was distracted

Time marches on:

  • Life returns to “normal”
  • Miss training
  • Miss my family

Started to renew the process of integrating the two:

  • When I met my wife she started training with me
    • Firearms
    • Competition
    • Unarmed
  • Other things got in the way
  • Having Kids was no different (pendulum)

Training is like anything else that is important to us

  • the level of resources we dedicate waxes and wanes
  • takes a conscious decision to dedicate ourselves to important things
  • Combine when we can
  • Sacrifice when we can’t


  • Make it a priority
  • Combine
    • training with fitness
    • training with friends
    • training with family
    • training with romance
  • Sacrafice
    • Give up less important things
    • streamline training
  • Refine
