He has taken a heartless, brutal, unceasing bashing & beating for that.
Some folks just seem to want to absolutely torture the guy with that (I guess) right up until the day he falls over & dies of old age?
But, Geesh! Enough already.

So what he's opinionated? If I'd ever been in the poo, or anyone I could really talk to ever had, I might be able to discount his opinions or his style, but I can't.
Most of the time he's right.
He's driven, he's intelligent, he's experienced. Hate away, but until I see your credentials, you look like a tool.
As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper
He appears to be another ex-military (just a guess) guy making money pushing gun related products. Nothing wrong with that but it would be nice if he didn't have a need to stretch the truth so blatantly, it makes him look rather small. IMHO

I don't know why people love to call him a coward. It seems to me that most people doing that have never been shot at. There was a major mistake made that shouldn't be discounted. That's the type of error one would seek training to ensure they didn't make. To use that to build your training business still doesn't compute to me. That said, there's no doubt that he teaches some good stuff. All the talk about him here probably isn't the end of the world for him either. As people talk about him and link to him I'm sure some love what they see and go train with him. If they do, they'll learn some good stuff. And I'm sure they'll get some laughs too.

James Yeager | Tactical Response I would be interested to see the qualifications of those that are so quick to jump on the "bash Yeager bandwagon"...
Oh..btw...I must have missed those 5 lies in the first 1:11 of the video that you are referring to...Please feel free to enlighten myself and perhaps any others that are wondering what those lies were. Especially the "body language" that indicated the lies...I too hate to see the truth stretched. I'm also interested in your perspectives on how the truth was stretched...Im always open to learn from someone more knowledgeable than myself. Oh..I forgot to ask, what is your weapons and training background. How and where did you receive your instruction and expertise in reading body language? Perhaps I'd like to study under you sometime. Or, perhaps I'd enjoy watching your informative you tube videos...Feel free to post up any information that would allow me to learn more about you.
I will comment on Yeager and Tactical Response however, since I do have "first hand" knowledge. I've met Yeager, socialized with Yeager, trained under Yeager, and evaluated Yeager, based on my own personal observations...I encourage anyone who is able, train under the man. Train under some of his cadre of instructors. You don't have to like the man to gain some very valuable instruction from the courses that are offered by Tactical Response. I believe he offers a "money back guarantee" to anyone that is not satisfied with any of his classes...All you have to do is stand up in front of the class, offer your critique and observations on why you felt like the training was not worthwhile and how you feel like you were ripped off...Better yet, go to his forum site and read the "after action reports" of the students who have trained under him. And, while you're doing that, be sure and check out the backgrounds of some of the students.
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
I like a lot of his ideas. There is validation of many of my personal thoughts.
Whether or not I liked someone, if they had a history of bullets coming their way, I would most certainly listen to them. Everybody wants to be an armchair quarterback. It seems like he might have a little experience.
