Does "OODA" work for human confrontation?
The U.S. Air Force uses the "OODA Loop" programmed into the F-35, for example, in reacting to possible air-to-air confrontations. The "OODA Loop," --- is for observe, orient, decide and act. The concept is to complete this process quickly and make fast decisions while in an air-to-air dogfight -- in order to get inside the enemy's decision cycle, properly anticipate, and destroy an enemy before they can destroy you.
Doesn't this sound like an excellent concept for gunfights down here on the soil? Seems so to me. If a confrontation is developing, you must observe what is happening, orient yourself to deal with potential aggression, decide what steps you are going to take, and then act.
Getting inside your opponent's decision cycle, properly anticipating their likely actions, and stopping your opponent before they can harm you sounds like an excellent mindset if and when needed.
