BEGINNER LEVEL | 3 DAY SURVIVAL CLASS

CLASS DESCRIPTION

Due to popular demand this is a new class at Texas Survival School.  Where our normal Level 1 Basic Class centers around surviving a 72 hour scenario with a combination of modern and primitive gear and techniques, this 3 day class is the foundation for our new completely primitive series of classes that will include more classes to come. This class sets the foundation for more advanced classes by focusing on primitive fire, water, cordage, tools, navigation, and shelter while also introducing students to primitive weapons and flint knapping, which will then get expanded in more depth in the Primitive Intermediate Series of Level 2 focused class.
