    I don't necessarily train for unfolding of specific events in a certain order or manner. To me it is more like exercising my mind and physical abilities so that I have the skills to efficiently and effectively employ the process to recognize, analyze, and act based on the circumstances as they unfold.

    I've trained and competed in martial arts for (well over) the past 30 yrs. And one thing that I've learned and teach others is to "clear your mind" (roughly translated as "mu" in Japanese) while sparring/fighting. Yes, there are combative techniques, such as, distance, timing, movement, SA, etc., to be aware of, however, if you are "thinking" about these things while sparring/fighting, generally, you will lose the match/bout. That is why most (here) will recommend that you attend "tactical" classes, then train A LOT and take into consideration those those variables, OODA loops, et.al., notwithstanding, that the OP listed during training. So that, at the moment of SD/SHTF, hopefully, everything will become second nature and purely reactive without much "thought". JMHO.

    Much like golf. The swing should be muscle memory. Your mind should be visualizing the flight of the ball not thinking about swing mechanics. If you're thinking about swing mechanics while playing golf, you've messed up before you even start. The driving range is where you work on that stuff, not out on the course.
