Lessons learned training Special Operations

Navy-SEAL-WallpaperBelow you will find some good questions and answers that were brought up by the finest men on the planet during a class I was teaching!  Questions of, “what comes next,” in a fighting situation and how to overcome it here in training, so that when it happens in the real world they will be prepared for it.
