Survival means different things to different people. The definition of the term “High Speed Survival” has dual meanings:

  • An in-depth study of the skills necessary to survive “on the go” vs. survival in place.
  • Skills that can be absorbed and applied in real time.

If you examine hundreds of case studies across history; from Native America to collapse scenarios around the globe, a common thread emerges:

Stagnation is Death

Your situation does not stay the same; it is always getting better or worse. The decision to stay or go always depends on your level of training. High Speed Survival™ dives deep into the skill-set of getting from A to B safely.

The instructors Matt Smith and Matt Shull are seasoned primitive skills practitioners and teachers – you will get the highest quality training possible in the Midwest!
