UNDERSTANDING | WORKING WITH DEAF SHOOTERS

Working with Deaf (Hearing Impaired) VODA Client. I only hope to work with more people of this demographic and others as they are my favorite!

 

This article is over due, please keep in mind that I'm still transitioning to Texas. Repeat Deaf VODA Client and successful Make-Up Artist always makes my day when I work with her. Did she learn a lot? Of course, that goes without saying. But ironically, I learned more from this VODA Client then I could ever teach her.

 

See, I don’t speak sign language other than the universal curse words that everyone uses LOL! So, with me not being able to use sign language we had to create our own language. It was a language that of course we both understand – but it was more important to create points in our language that the Bad Guy could understand as well (not shown).

See this Repeat VODA Client is shooting for Personal Protection and that’s what makes her special. While I was administering training and education for her in Atlanta, we both had the opportunity to also include my great friend, fellow Gun-Fighter and Educator Ronnie Oliver in on the Session. Just being able to see this VODA Client grow from being Gun-Shy to being able to fly on her own is no greater sight!

 

In order to do what I do you have to have an infinite amount of patients, passion and dedication to each Client especially Clients such as this one as she is one of my most favorite Clients. i say that because every time I work with her I’m learning from her and the demographic she is an extension of.

Sure, I could give the inner workings of how her Sessions flows and why me and this VODA Client are able to work in the fashion that we do but with a Client this special, why? I rather keep it a trade secret. But do know and understand that you must have an open mind and not be judgmental and give up on the Client because he or she may need just a little bit more time because of the barriers that must be broken down in order for them to get to a level of excellence.

 

In closing I will give you the same advice that I gave her:

  • Relax

  • Get A Great Stance

  • Establish a Good Grip

  • Punch Out

  • Lean into The Shot

  • Get A Good Sight Alignment & Sight Picture

  • Press the Trigger

  • Rock & Roll

ALWAYS BE SENSITIVE TO THE NEEDS OF THE CLIENT IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU ITS ABOUT THEM.
