Modern Samurai Project Class Schedule 2022 – This is the Way (Red Dots)

For those who are tied closely to the firearms industry or simple love firearms themselves, you will have noticed in the last decade the explosive growth and popularity of red dots; especially on pistols. With the addition of a new accessory to essentially your tool (for concealed carry, recreation, or hunting purposes), you additionally should receive adequate and proper training with it as well. It would be no different than carry a med kit in your vehicle. Preparedness is good, but preparedness without training is hollow. You need the skills in order to apply the tools properly. For all those reasons, there is no one I could more confidently recommend to teach all of us about red dots and pistol defense/marksmanship than Scott Jedlinski of Modern Samurai Project.

As a gun writer, I have been blessed and fortunate to meet, travel, and see all kinds of instructors and training methodologies. While I have skills in a plethora of shooting disciplines I will be the the first to tell you I am the best at none. Being exposed to so many instructors over the years it takes someone who is authentically a Jedi at their craft (Scott Jedlinski’s affectionate nickname) to move the needle for me in my skills and training. One person who immediately did that was Scott – “Jedi” – from Modern Samurai Project.

I met him at an industry event in Texas the summer of 2020 as Trijicon was gearing up to announce the RMRcc micro red dot. Over the course of multiple days I was bombarded with little knowledge bombs that left me speechless. He moved the needle on my shooting skills so quickly I felt like our morning coffee was a cheat code to speed shooting with a red dot. Not just presenting quickly and mag dumping, but actually hitting a given target/targets under defined time parameters.

The Trijicon RMRcc is as tough as its bigger brother – the RMR. We repeatedly pounded it against posts racking our firearms and it held up wonderfully.

I was so impressed by Scott and his Modern Samurai Project teaching-style and curriculum that as soon as he was in my neck of the woods near Minnesota I attended one of his classes again out of my pocket; absolutely worth it. The 2nd time around I still learned a ton even though I had an idea of what I was walking into this time. The higher your level of training (or wherever you might deem yourself on the skills spectrum) Scott frankly, down-to-Earth, with no minced words tells you how to improve and apply training.

Great instructors aren’t high school cheerleaders. It isn’t all “rah, rah, rah.” Sometimes you need a blunt instruction and that needed push from an instructor to get you to the outcome you are chasing. Then, Jedi’s simple smile from a successfully executed drill feels like a million bucks. Jedi told me to kill this drill and I murdered it.

For all the anecdotal reasons I’ve mentioned, I wholeheartedly endorse attending one of the Modern Samurai Project classes if you have the time. You will assuredly learn a ton, and Scott and his staff are world-class. Check out their class schedule below. It sells out fast, but they also are constantly adding new classes as well.
