My Training:
As a instructor all the training that I have learned I have shared with all our members and our explorers especially them I've noted that the younger seem more adept and willing, change as usual is harder for the older there less likely to try new ideas but their given equal time and educational materials. As my training
continues to this day. The moment I believe my training is over is the day I should pack it in. We learn something new or rediscover new tactical knowledge every time we train.
