This course is an absolute must have because fire making is one of the single most difficult bushcraft skills to master and we are going to make it easy for you by giving you all the secrets! If you can’t make fire after this class, then you should probably stay at the house because this is the most comprehensive fire class you can get! From teachers who live this lifestyle full time and build hundreds of friction fires each year. Our survival fire making course will teach you the ancient methods as well as the modern ones. SIGMA 3 Cadre will show you how to do the bow drill, hand drill, solar, ferro rod, the all night fire, and much more! Each student will thoroughly understand how to make a fire in any environment they find themselves after this class. The class will begin with a hunt for fire making materials and the instructors will teach each student what materials to look for and what tinder works best. No pre made kits in this course! After each student has gathered enough materials then the instructor will demonstrate each method and begin letting the student make their own kits. We believe its very important for the student to learn how to make fire 100% from scratch in case they are ever caught in a situation with no modern materials or tools.
After each student has successfully carved and performed the various fire making methods, then we will move on to wilderness water procurement. Water is one of the most important things in a survival situation and the instructors will demonstrate several methods from making natural filters to primitive boiling techniques with no pots or pans. And we will also cover the use of modern tools for cleansing water. This will be a laid back course that will not overly exert students and will be relaxing escape to primitive wilderness education. The class is 2 days/1 night! Hope to see you there!
