In Episode #4 of “The Journey,” I train with former Navy SEAL, professional competition shooter, and performance shooting coach, Fred Ruiz.
Fred is a qualified Naval Special Warfare Sniper and small unit tactics subject matter expert. In addition to teaching SEALs, he has taught private shooting and tactics courses nationally for civilians, law enforcement, and other military service members.
After the Navy, Fred got involved in executive protection. His experiences in corporate security inspired him to launch his own private firm called, Method Enterprises.
He also recently secured a property in San Antonio, Texas that will serve as a tactical training center. The company is called Untethered Resources Group (website to come).
Watch Episode #4
In Episode #4 of “The Journey”, Fred hones in on my pistol fundamentals as he teaches me performance shooting techniques to improve my shooting speed and accuracy, which also apply to shooting in defensive situations.
This was one of my favorite training sessions because Fred answered lingering questions I had about my shooting performance, and he gave me a deeper understanding and appreciation of the basics.
Episode #4 is great for all skill levels. Regardless of your experience, you'll likely learn something new.
The episode is longer than our usual twenty minutes, i.e. it's 45 minutes, but still, we simply can't include everything from the training session, so we did our best to pick key highlights.
Fred only scratched the surface during our training session, so I'm excited to train more with Fred in the near future. If you have the chance to train with him, I highly recommend you do!
