Defensive Training Tip: Avoid the Fatal Funnel

Rich Graham elegantly breaks down door opening procedures and the infamous Fatal Funnel. Watch for the bonus Tactical Reload reinforcement at about 4:00. Other thoughts/ complimentary notes:

  • The way Rich demonstrates with his pistol at slidelock is great- it's a good safety idea for anyone demonstrating tactical movement like this
  • If you were going to approach a closed door with a flashlight and weapon occupying your hands- be sure to use the flashlight hand to turn that doorknob
  • You should be conscious of your OODA loop as you slice the pie – each step is an Observe input
  • More info on slicing the pie here (skip right to the 'Corners' section)
