The women’s survival intensive course is designed to take a woman with absolutely zero experience and make them ready to survive a wilderness or urban survival scenario, as well as teaching self defense and anti-kidnapping/rape tactics. We know many of our working women out there don’t have time to take off for weeks at a time to train survival tactics, so we have designed a crash course of skills that will teach you how to keep your ass alive no matter what the world throws at you! It will prepare you for a wide array of circumstances and this training will give you the confidence to be more adventurous in your travels. Knowledge is power, and we want to empower women to feel safe and confident no matter where they go. The womens intensive program will primarily be an equipment based course and will only cover a handful of primitive techniques. The course is designed for women of all ages and is full of must have skills to ensure that you need to survive. You will learn enough in this weekend to provide for your very basic survival necessities to ensure that you get home safe and sound! Guaranteed!
