The What

If the past two years has taught us anything, it's that nothing is certain.

The pandemic.

Civil unrest.

Natural disasters.

Political upheaval.

Skyrocketing inflation.

Supply-chain disruptions.

Wide-spread electrical grid failures.

And a massive surge in violent crimes and murders the likes of which we haven't seen in decades.

Just one of those life-altering events would be enough justification for us to be better prepared.

But all of them at the SAME TIME?

There's no clearer sign that the time to become self-reliant is NOW.

That's why Tiga Tactics has teamed up with Advanced Survival Training to bring to you the Wilderness Warrior Weekend Camp.

This two-day, in-person event will teach you life-saving skills to survive on your own — whether you're fighting the elements in the backcountry or fighting two-legged predators in a back alley.

This epic seminar will give you personal preservation skills using 3 essential tools:

  1. The knife
  2. The axe
  3. Your bare hands

Tiga Tactics co-founder Patrick Vuong wasn't just a cover model for Offgrid Magazine (as seen above in Issue 10), he was also the head editor for many years.

The Who

This hands-on camp is for ANYONE who wants to be certain they have the skills necessary to survive in today's uncertain world.

In particular, the Wilderness Warrior Weekend will appeal to all sorts of people, including (but not limited to):

  • Parents who want to pass along vital life-saving skills to their kids and future generations.

  • Preppers and preparedness-minded folks who might want to increase their chances of survival with effective empty-hand and edged-weapon combatives

  • Martial artists who want to complement their fighting talents with primitive skills — such as fire-making, shelter-building, and water disinfecting.

  • Military: Whether you're a pilot or an infantryman, learning how to use a knife and an axe as survival tools is indispensable.

  • Law enforcement: This course will be a good refresher for officers or agents who might carry a blade as a secondary weapon and want better empty-hand tactics.

  • Outdoor adventurers: Hikers and mountain climbers will learn key concepts they can apply in the back country. Meanwhile, experienced survivalists will get not only a fun refresher but also some new advanced-level tips and tricks to upgrade their skills.

The When

What Our Students Are Saying

Steven Barlow

"Knives Illustrated" Editor — New York

"I can say that the skills taught here were very much in line with my experiences as a police officer. ... It can SAVE YOUR LIFE."

Matthew Baker

Firearms Instructor — Los Angeles

"The content was presented in a universal way that was accessible and beneficial to all skill levels. I loved the concept and approach to empty-hand combatives in a weapons-based environment, utilizing moves that have a high probability of success under stress and a low probability of injury."

Paul Tirajoh

Martial Arts Instructor — Colorado

"With the combatives, movement, and accelerated heartbeat/duress thrown in during the class, I was finding that my successful deployments weren’t quite what I expected them to be. From partial deployments to straight up dropping my knife on the ground, knowing these failures and training them makes me feel much more confident and competent."

Steve Myers

Former Federal Law Enforcement — Maryland

"The system is great how it builds from the basic to the more advanced. The classes that I had in the past were lacking in basic information, and rubber knives came out and "lets go at it!" No thought of what type of knife to carry and how to operate with it. In grading [this course] I give it 100%."
