Watch a short video of how we train you! 

We lead global survival wilderness courses in spectacular outdoor locations throughout southern California - San Diego, Orange County/Los Angeles and Africa. Our focus is on connection with the land and working with it using the natural resources as our ancestors did and using less man made gear. Primitive skills are empowering as they provide the platform to be truly self sufficient in the wild. Join us to experience quality survival training, beautiful wilderness terrain and adventure!
