In this rare 3-day "knife-only" seminar, one of the foremost masters of wilderness survival will help you discover what it takes to evade capture and detection from hostile elements using minimal preparation.
As a master of survival, combat psychology, and Systema combatives, Konstantin brings with him many years of real-world wilderness combat and survival experience. He became renowned for training special forces soldiers operating in the North Caucasus region to greatly expand their zones of awareness to fight and survive more effectively, in a very short period of time.
This will be the first time Konstantin will be teaching this course in the U.S.

- Solo and team tactics with the expectation of rescue within 72 hours

- Camouflage and stealth movement
- Use of improvised tools and weapons
- Survival knots and lashings
- Firestarting and Evasion fires

No experience is necessary, and the number of attendees is strictly limited due to the nature of the training.

Check-in starts at 7:30AM on Friday, and training ends at 1:00PM on Sunday. IMPORTANT: If you are unable to stay the entire time, please do not register.
If you plan on attending the included lunch on Sunday, which starts at 1:00pm, please arrange for your return flight to be sometime in the late afternoon or evening.
For your convenience, you may camp out at the site on Thursday and Sunday nights.
All participants must sleep outdoors onsite on Friday and Saturday nights. Commercial tents may be used before and after the seminar, but they are strongly discouraged during the seminar since students will construct and use improvised shelters throughout this experience.
Food and Water
Drinking water will be provided throughout the weekend.
Participants are responsible for bringing their own food and cooking tools. A basic fire pit will be available for boiling water and cooking food. Please be advised that lunch will be provided on Sunday, after the completion of the field training exercise.
There are a limited number of boxes of Mountain House freeze dried food available for purchase. Once these boxes are gone, this option will disappear. Each box is an additional $50 and contains ten 2-serving packages of quality freeze dried camping food in the following proportions: (3) Chicken Teriyaki with Rice, (2) Beef Stew, (3) Beef Stroganoff, (2) Lasagna with Meat Sauce. More information can be found HERE.
To purchase a box, please make sure you select the "with Food" option when paying for the seminar.
This seminar is geared toward expanding the student's awareness and connection to the terrain and climate, so the usual amenities found in urban settings will not be available. There will be non-water toilet facilities and make-shift shower stations that may be used throughout the weekend. The site will be right next to a natural water source, which can be used for swimming, bathing (using non-toxic biodegradable soap), and obtaining shower water.
