Image Based Decisional Drills Definition of Success: To quickly make ONE good FIRST decision based on visual stimuli & instantly act on it. Be confident, decisive, efficient, & explosive.
Image Based Decisional Drills is a well thought out dry practice or live fire exercise with a deck of 21 Image Cards (with and without additional "tools") that provide IMAGES that will help you to recognize danger and to make smart decisions ahead of time. Our image based learning system is another beneficial step on your way to making good decisions quickly.
There are very few home training, self protection training for professionals or students, dry practice or live fire range exercises for the private citizen that focus on making lethal, less than lethal and non lethal decisions quickly. Our Image Based Decisional Drills "The ONLINE Class" is intended to fill in the gap in learning how to make decisions using images to provoke a response, decide which TOOL to use, and then ACT on that decision. From the time that 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. In all scenarios the image is happening to YOU, in front of YOU, beside YOU or behind YOU. YOU are your first responder and decisions need to be made quickly.
Image Based Decisional Drills "The Class" is an online presentation for EVERYONE! Instructors and general public ages 13 and above.
We named this learning system Image Based Decisional Drills because you are learning to quickly make ONE good FIRST decision based on visual stimuli, the word "decisional" means "having the power or authority to make decisions", and drills means practicing.
Decisions are more important than techniques and our goal in "The ONLINE Class" is to supply an avenue to learn good decision and provide some simple, yet very effective techniques. Image Based Decisional Drills "The ONLINE Class" will help teach you to you access 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. What a wonderful gift of knowledge, to KNOW that is possible and learn from it.
It is MANDATORY that each person attending this online class purchases an Image Based Decisional Drills KIT ($99) or NO-KIT ($59.99) BEFORE CLASS. You WILL TRAIN with your Image Based Decisional Drills KIT or NO-KIT during the ZOOM class. Only exception is if several people in your household are attending at once.
If you are your first responder, then 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.
You have 3 main training/practice options. On this page, we will focus on #3, Shelley Hill's 3 hour Image Based Decisional Drills " The ONLINE Class" via ZOOM.
Recognition -prime decision (RPD) is a model of how people make quick, effective decisions when faced with complex situations. In this model, the decison 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!
