Welcome to Bush Mechanics Survival Training! We are a survival and bushcraft school based in San Diego, California. We are renowned for our high level field training on Southern California's largest Indian reservation. Our international training takes place in Tanzania alongside the Hadza bushmen-the last true hunter gatherers. Our philosophy is to teach you to function with less and thrive with more focusing heavily on using primitive skills relying on natures resources and less on man made gear. We have taught folks from all walks of life including military, fire-fighters, boy scouts, schools, celebrities, physically disabled and contestants of survival shows like "Survivor", Discovery's "Desafio x2" and "Naked and afraid". Our instructors have worked with TV shows by Lifetime, History and Discovery channels. Click here to view courses

“Joel’s method of instruction is clear and concise. You get the most amount of knowledge in the least amount of words. I highly value that as a United States Marine and an instructor myself”
