Ranking & Rating

MISIA will develop two types of international classifications

Designed for any Practical Shooters who want to measure their shooting skills with predefined stages, the result of which gives them a club, regional, national or international ranking.
MISIA Rating
Designed to establish a MISIA Instructor Rating, through the number of courses delivered and students taught, with an assessment by students of the quality of the instruction. Furthermore, there will be a rating of the best clubs and facilities for the practice and development of practical shooting, measured both by the facilities and services they provide for athletes and by the level and rating of the instructors they have.

Drills, Lesson Plans & Packages

The different levels of training are based on the development of a pedagogical teaching methodology. This is based on clear, simple and direct “Drills” as protocols for the minimum international standards, which must be followed by instructors under the MISIA system. At the same time, the training has been structured as a postgraduate university training format, forming university expert courses, postgraduate diplomas and master in practical shooting with all its specialties.

The concept of “drills” refers to the repetitive practice of fundamental techniques and procedures with the goal of the physical, mental and neuromuscular development of the specific skills required for the safe use of firearms, both for sport shooters as well as for personnel who use firearms in a profesional context.

Student & Instructor Packages

Depending on the category and level within the MISIA structure, each registered user will be able to download and access different study materials composed of basic manuals, files with the drills, videos, technical and scientific articles, etc. The will also be able to acquire different packages of basic or complete equipment, as well as acquire the different MISIA products separately.
