5 Day Survival Intensive

Product Description

Basic Survival Intensive course, don't mistake the word "Intensive" for difficulty level, it is representative of the level of information and skills that will be taught.

This class will take the Basic Level Class and remove most of the stress level training, replacing it with more simple skills and extended training on critical elements needed to create muscle memory. We will spend almost an entire day working with each Survival Priority, and then combine them daily to build a tool box of knowledge that should be a great basis for continued practical application and learning.
