“Justin Sage Williams not only has great skills but he also has the ability to effectively teach those skills to others. His input on my handrill technique led to a fat ember on my board on my next attempt, in the eastern Woodlands at that. He’s professional and courteous, and amazingly devoid of unnecessary ego BS, which can be a rarity in this field. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone serious about learning bushcraft and survival skills.” – Chris Wilkes Hattiesburg, MS (Alone Season 4)
“Friend, brother, and fellow survival instructor… I can’t imagine better accolades. Justin your teaching style is awesome, and it was a privilege to train with you. I am far and large more confident in who I am not only as an outdoorsman, but as a more whole human after taking your course. Love you brother! I highly recommend it for anyone.” – John G. TN
Thank you so much Sage Juan for a wonderful weekend of wild edibles and medicinal plants learning and lore! Can’t tell you how pleased I was with how professional, well organized, and informative you were with the class and how you truly utilized all of our time with Sigma 3 to enhance our learning and retention of more than 85 different plants. Even with our class down time to reflect on our notes, drawings, and identification methods, you encouraged us all to go “pick salad” for that evenings meal, was an incredible use of time management and develops that much more confidence and excitement when preparing for next class day. Sage your overall love and respect that you have for the wilderness and sharing that wealth of knowledge is infectious! I was discussing with fellow classmates how so many “schools” are popping up these days in the field of bushcraft and survival it’s hard to know who is to rely on or put faith in for your education when your life could truly be on the line. Sigma 3 standards that they have set forth in an industry that’s flooded with imitators should be a testament to the fact that with you leading the charge for their education, Sigma 3 truly stand behind their training and understand that even instructors are students and they never stop learning. It’s so refreshing and wonderful to hear from an instructor that is humble and reflects that in his teaching and continued learning. I’m very pleased I took this course and I highly suggest Sigma 3 Survival School.

This was one of the best outdoor experiences of my life. Justin (Sage) was very thorough and patient, and he is a great instructor. I have learned so many new things related to survival I didn’t have a clue about.

One I will never forget! Justin Williams (Sage Juan) was professional and demonstrated each skill thoroughly. He explained 4 or 5 levels of detail with every skill and instruction. I highly recommend Sigma 3.
