Mike Hughes Competes in Texas Double Tap

These are two short fun stages at the Texas Double Tap in 2010. Stage 6 had some ragin splits in the end and Stage 5 was, well kind of a different ending.
As a bonus, the third video is the most inspirational training video before headed to Texas, best video on this site.

Train Hard. Train Smart.

Dotson Drill 2 with Thomas Heckens and Mike Hughes

I love this drill. It is so darn addicting. Lets not shoot static targets. This drill is hard and you can tell by all the mikes (misses) Thomas and I throw.

Very Different Cardio/Power with Dry Firing: Tire Flipping 1

Break out the tractor tires! Crossfit has made tractor tires very popular for various training drills. I like flipping tires as a supplement to an overall training regimen. Steve Gowin came up with this drill where he integrated tire flipping with draws, strong hand/weak hand shots with explosive movements.
This video is an introduction to this concept.

Get Low 1: Drills Under the Cage, Mike Hughes shows a set up to train staying low when shooting

This video introduces the "cage" where we are forced to stay low while doing drills. The cage mandates that we stay low and not creep up. Getting low and being comfortable in a crouch is a 1000 mile journey. Staying low requires leg strength, hip mobility and balance. All of these skill sets are not something that can be mastered in a training session, a week or even a year.

Get Low 2: Drills Under the Cage, Thomas Heckens and Mike Hughes shows a set up to get low doing left right drills

Its a 1000 mile journey but getting lower has numerous benefits. A "Cage" will force us to stay low while doing drills.
In this drill Thomas and I are getting a lot of reps in and we have to stay low when we slam into position. You can test this yourself and see if you get stable more quickly when you come into position low.

Left Right Drill With Visual Obstruction

The left right drill is one of favorite drills. It works exploding out of position and decelerating into position ready to shoot. When decelerating near the ferns, they provide limited visibility so after getting into general position we have to do small movements to get the body into position to see the target.

Training!

This is an integrated drill where we are decelerating in a low port position ready to shoot and accelerating to a second shooting position. We have to shoot in high volume to make gains. In this drill we know where there is a target when we approach the port so our gun is up ready to shoot. The second video is where we are presenting the pistol when we come into the port.
