2-15 Drills

2-15. DRILLS

Drills are used to maintain soldiers’ skills in executing techniques through repetition. During these drills, techniques or phases of techniques are repeated as often as necessary to ensure programmed learning by the soldiers. Subconscious programming usually occurs after 25 repetitions of movement.

Technique drills help soldiers retain their skills, and they are a good tool for reviewing techniques already learned.
