Wait for it. Watch the center VERY CLOSELY (video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/CK3uJ-UFf_x/). My wife’s second shot, ever. Swipe left for first shot, 37.5 feet. Day 1. I taught her how I WISH I’d been taught. Takedown. Slide. How to make a firearm totally inoperable. Mag drop, swap, reload, stance, style, sighting, bracing, breathing. Dry fire. 4 laws of gun safety. THEN, load your own magazine with ONE round. Unload mag. Load, drop mag, check chamber, clear chamber, reload. Repeat. Later, fire. One. One. One. THEN, 5 at a time.
For years I learned from a lot of experienced shooters. Not a knock against them, but the military guys were the absolute worst educators for beginners. Since it is all so natural for them, they kept leaving out critical details. It wasn’t until I worked with passionate civilian instructors (like @sir.michaeljames) that I began to see a parallel. In my industry, the most talented naturals, lifelong athletes, are not the BEST coaches. It doesn’t mean they can’t BECOME good. They’ll just never be great.
Vince Lombardi was not a star player. He was not a natural fit for football... on the field. Phil Jackson played on a Division II team which failed to win a championship. He did make it as a second round pick to the NBA, but no one argues he was a naturally dominant player.
If you have no rhythm, Neil Peart is not the BEST instructor for you. If you have no coordination, Baryshnikov is not the BEST dance instructor for you. If you’re starting businesses late in life, Warren Buffet is not the BEST teacher for you. If you weren't built like a bodybuilder at age 10, you can get some insights from Arnold, but you won't get the BEST instruction possible from him.
The greatest naturals, even those who slave for their craft, do NOT make for the greatest coaches. That’s an inarguable fact. I know people who worry about taking criticism for teaching when they don’t have the “right background,” whatever that means. But it’s quite the opposite. The naturally-gifted who are the best players, best athletes, best musicians, best artists, best marksman, ought to be more cautious and humble about giving advice and teaching, because they can never be the greatest teachers. Non-naturals will always have unrivaled superior insight for what it takes for other non-naturals to achieve greatness.
