Non-Violent Dispute Resolution

The first CHL class I taught was in Midland, Texas.  I remember struggling through the hour+ that I had to spend teaching Non-Violent Dispute Resolution; what a waste of time.  I felt like I was wasting time that could be better spent teaching my students how to hit the bad guy they were shooting at.

Eventually (I reluctantly admit that the revelation came slowly), I realized what most of my students probably already knew, "Whether you are carrying a gun or not, the best way to win a fight is to avoid a fight."

But, I still thought the Non-Violent Dispute Resolution section of the course was a waste of time.  So, I decided to re-write it.  This month, the Texas DPS saw fit to approve my new NVDR version for inclusion in my classes.

If you would be interested, my new version can be found at:
