I need some advice on how to train a inexprienced waterfighter. He can't aim, dodge, or even pump his properly. I seriously need some help.

Edit: Quit avoiding the word filter! Use kinder terms such as inexperienced water gunner! go talk to hunter, he tuaght me how to do it.

I'd say eric can pump his gun...but I can pressurize a MXL before he's done with a hydroblade...and he can aim...but he needs a 10-second shot to hit...and yea...as for dodging...that's pretty much right...

And my advice is to have him train hard everyday...my aim sucked when I started...well...not nearly as much as his...

Throw stuff like water balloons at him, and make him have to try and shoot you. And if that still doesn't work, then just use him as a human shield in a fight.

No offense meant, but I am trying to make him like waterfighting more. Also I am trying to make him a somewhat good waterfighter as well. ;)

I deleted the other two posts because they did not have to do with training. Please discuss scopes and so forth in the tech forum.

My team hasn't had a training session in it's 3 seasons of life, but the more we skirmish the more I think we should. I know I am a terrible shot. I've been thinking, suspend some targets and shoot at them from different distances. There are soem detailed training exercises out there, I'll track some down and post links.

The best way to train someone is to constantly have battles. If your trying to make him like water guns, don't make him do all sorts of exercises, aiming, pumping e.t.c. Just have as many battles as possible, even 1v1's against him. If he loses the battle just say, you should pump your gun more, try dodging better. Eventually from experience he will become a much better fighter.

Yes, but if he keeps losing all the time, he may get discouraged.

you could just let him win the first few and increase the difficulty every fight.

Yeh but from the second round up he'd probably still recieve a pounding each time.

My team has never done exercises, as we think constant battle experience is more important. Our newer members fight in the major wars and gain experience quickly. We give them advice and directions until they know what is expected.

I have to constanly practice running from one place to the other in Tennis here's a decent workout running plan because shooting we come natural if he plays 007, splinter cell, ghost recon, rainbow six, or any of those games Hey, that's funny..

2 month workout (which can go continuously but you'll see some results in 2 months)

Everyday make sure you stretch in the mornings, eat in moderation, eat right, don't sit on your butt , go walking for 30 mins (just a slow easy walk) you need to keep your muscles loose so you won't pull any(which hurts like heck and get real tight and can't touch your toes

Every week you need to have him run suicides (email me about details on that one ), and squats(40 hindu squats) and jumping rope(120 jumps), and the 6 ball drill (email me about that one and ill give you details too)

Every 2 times a month you need him to run 8 laps around your school track (make sure you time those and take 10 seconds off his last time for him to beat his next run so he'll get faster)

Make sure you put his Every week stuff on Mon. Tue. and Wed. then have him run the 8 laps on fri let him rest up on Sat, Sun, and Mon
have him do these things and he'll become faster than you in 2 months garunteed

yes I love exercising it makes me feel better and it'll make you feel better too you just gotta get out and bite the bullet !
