That video is like shooting fish in a barrel. Those guys were not a serious threat, it is pretty obvious they didn't want any of that.
This response time is related to awareness and the OODA loop.....
So bringing it back around towards the origional topic, is your training helping you to process fast enough through the OODA loop to be effective during a real time interaction, with unpredictable and resistant opponents (and your own adrenal dump), if you only train slow and with mainly compliant partners?
I don't believe you can train yourself to complete the ooda loop any faster. That is a natural process of the conscious thought that must be performed. However, it was lack of awareness that puts people into ooda. That is why SWAT teams use the tactics they do, it is to keep the people in ooda. That is all about surprise attack. If you are caught by surprise, I don't believe you can speed the ooda up. If the attacker knows what he/she is doing, they can keep you in ooda. You will simply have to tough it out until they pause just long enough for the brain to catch up.
Also, while in ooda, everything seems so fast, when it may not be.
