MKDF Lesson Plans

Postby Jake Norwood » Sat Nov 06, 2010 6:56 am

This thread is for posting MKDF lesson plans. Please post discussions of specific plans, drills, etc., to another thread so we can keep this one as a reference to past lessons/schedules.

Oh, and just because a certain date has a certain plan doesn't mean we necessarily followed the plan to a "T."
