Foundation Handgun 2.0 in Battle Creek.
Why 2.0? Because May 2018 was the very first MDFI class I attended. It had been 13 years since my last formal class. Why? Bad experiences. But I wanted to get back at it. I researched, asked around and was pointed to MDFI by a professional "as seen on TV" 3 gun competitor that was a coworker.
It was a lot to take in the first time. Borderline intimidating, again, because of previous experiences. The intimidation was in my head! Not only was I as rusty as a 71 Plymouth Duster, but so many poor methods I learned and practiced had to be written over. After the intros, safety brief, First Aid info and then instruction combined with individual coaching by Trek and Steve at that class, I felt comfortable by lunch. At times it felt like one on one instruction. I came home and signed up for 3 more classes.
The class today, Auguat 2019? A B S O L U T E L Y Phenomenal! I feel like I wasn't even there last year. I may make this an annual must attend for regrounding.
Today just reiterated to me that the MDFI curriculum is all tied together, and as you move along through it and then go back and retake classes Gold Nuggets pop up that smooth off some previous rough edges.
To sum it up, I just can't get enough of learning and improving while meeting great, like minded, safe & ego free people. Today was my 12th class in 15 months and the 2nd class I've taken twice.
If you're considering MDFI and are on the fence. Get off the fence! The pace is comfortable, for all experience levels. For some, it may seem like it starts slow, but there is a lot of information to take in. As you move on in the class throughout the day, and the curriculum over time, the tempo increases but the safety and education standards are never compromised.
