Keith has expertise and experience teaching all clay target sports, focusing primarily on Sporting Clays and FITASC. His teaching methods developed through years of training with top U.K. shooting schools and in collaboration with his brother, Jeff Lupton, founder of the Yorkshire Gun Room and Shooting Grounds in Northern England.
Keith’s teaching system provides a novice shooter with a strong base of shotgun fundamentals needed for long-term shooting success. Beginners will learn correct stance, a proper and consistent gun mount and have an eye dominance evaluation. They will be introduced to the concepts of shotgunning and techniques of shooting at moving targets.
During the lesson, Keith assesses each student’s learning style – visual learner, physical learner or analytical – and adapts his instruction approach to suit their needs. As a result, students will be breaking targets (or more targets) in their very first lesson.
Keith’s intermediate students build upon their fundamentals as they are taught to read various target presentations, further develop concentration and focus on targets in motion. Additional shooting techniques are added to the student’s repertoire, as target presentations become more technical and complex.
When students progress to the tournament level, Keith coaches them on the mental aspects of competitive shooting and how to develop a proper pre-shot routine, while continuing to fine-tune their shooting skills and techniques.
As in any sport, practice is essential to continued skill building and success. Following the lesson, Keith will recommend a training program to help you meet your goals. To schedule a lesson or for more information, call Keith at 914-646-1528 or Fill out the contact form.
