What is MSTG and how is foundational to what we do?

MSTG = Mindset, Skills, Teamwork and Gear:  We often call it the four puzzle pieces of survial and safety in the outdoors.  There is much research that points to these four aspects being critical to doing things well in the outdoors.  

  • Mindset: Developing the right mindset is crucial for outdoor safety and survival. Our courses will help you cultivate a resilient and proactive mindset, proven to be the most vital aspect of thriving in nature.
  • Skills: Master the fundamental skills necessary for outdoor survival. From building a fire with three essential elements to using a compass and map, our hands-on training covers everything you need to know about survival, land navigation, tracking, and more.
  • Tactics: Go beyond basic skills with advanced tactics. Learn how to apply your skills in various scenarios, whether you're injured, in a group, or armed. We also emphasize post-training development, providing you with methods to continually enhance your abilities.
  • Gear: Experience a wide array of gear, from primitive tools like the atlatl to the latest high-tech equipment. As consultants for gear manufacturers, we bring a wealth of gear to our classes, giving you the opportunity to test and use equipment before making a purchase.
