I believe we are driven by what we have learned through education, training and experience, however we are defined by what we do.  You can know a lot but your value (to yourself and others) is a result of the actions you take.  Taking action requires knowledge and proficiency in skills that matter.  Think about the following question in the context of skills you have that make you valuable as a high functioning individual.

What do you do?

What can you do?

What don’t you do?

What should you do?

Not happy with your answers… we can help.

Happy with your answers… check your ego.  We all have room to grow.

Our content is tailored around the concept of Core Skills building on all other skills. Here is a look at our skills progression currently in Alpha Development.

Section 1: CORE SKILLS

Core skills are foundational in nature to the other skills categories and either directly or indirectly support most if not all other skills.  All core skills are required to be considered high functioning.  While mastery of all or even some skills is not readily attainable for everyone, obtaining a high level of proficiency in these skills eases the execution of all other skills and tasks.

Fitness

The objective of fitness is to build physical capability and capacity.  There are three subsets of fitness: STRENGTH, CARDIO, and FLEXIBILITY.

Strength is built through the following activities: Body weight exercise, Weight lifting, kettle bell/sand bag/mace exercise, and ruck marching.

Cardiovascular capacity is increased through the following activities:  Running for distance, running sprints, biking, swimming, and rowing.

Flexibility is developed through the following activities: Yoga, calisthenics, dynamic stretching.

Survival

The objective of Survival is to develop situational awareness and response reflexes to increase positive outcomes in emergencies.  There are four subsets of survival: FIRST AID, PSYCHOLOGY, AWARENESS, and BUSHCRAFT.

First Aid consists the follow basic medical skills: Air, blood, bones, eyes, heat, and cold.

Psychology of human response in emergencies is learned by studying Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs: The basic principles, safety, shelter, food.

Awareness of potential risks and emergencies is developed by learning about dangers, threats, and the actions of people around you.

Bushcraft is the collection of skills needed to survive and thrive in challenging environments with little or no assistance.
