Tool in a box – a tactical fallacy (part 01)

When it comes down to the conceptualism of tactical techniques, methods or skills - The tool box analogy is by far an analogy which represents a false and mostly unforgiven understanding of the relations between stress and performance. I chose the word unforgiven, because that's how it is – Unforgiven as it tends to be proven wrong just in the moment when things go out of the window and shit is splattered all over the wall. Considering the fact that the majority of people aren't statistically going to get that far in terms of actually fighting a threat, the fundamentals and depth of understanding of this fallacy tend to simply fade away from the sight of the masses, leaving peoples certain that their imaginary box of solutions and tools for every problem or issue, will actually exist when the time comes.

The missing link in your tactical training – Identification.

The fast and furious mentality, which is largely entertainment driven, penetrated slowly in the recent century into too many tactical concepts. Primarily shooting, combatives and CQB resulting in a complete disregard of many little pieces or micro critical milestones if you will, that are existing in the reality between the moment you perceive a certain visual input to the moment you take a decision. We call it identification the middle ground between cause and effect.
