5 things I learned from Aaron Cowan at Sage Dynamics

A few weeks ago I got a chance to take an outstanding training course from Aaron Cowan, owner and operator of Sage Dynamics.  I live in Colorado but have been following Aaron’s Youtube channel and Instagram for awhile.  My impression from what I saw is that he is the kind of guy who works hard at his craft and really knows what he is talking about, and also that he cares that what he teaches actually makes an impact on his students.

Sage Dynamics is based out of Georgia and I was resigned to the fact that the only way I was going to be able to take his classes was to travel to Atlanta to visit UrbanArmed.  My budget doesn’t usually stretch that far so my chances were slim.  But not to fear, Instagram came to the rescue.  Aaron was advertising a class right in my neck of the Eastern Colorado plains.  After promising my wife the moon, I packed my gear and joined 7 other local guys for Aaron’s Defensive Handgun Fundamentals and Defensive Handgun I classes.

My goal over the last several years is to take at least one handgun training class a year.  The last class I took left a lot to be desired, both in the skills we focused on and frankly the personality of the instructor.  I won’t waste time with details but I left that class feeling like I had wasted my time and money.  Based on what I had seen of Sage Dynamics, I was hoping for a much better class.  I was not disappointed.
