CURRICULUM

GRAPPLING FOR SELF-PRESERVATION

For our ancient ancestors their first understanding of self-defense would have come from honing their grappling skills. At the Primal-Skillz Camp you will learn up to date grappling skills, yet inspired by its ancient roots.​

BARE KNUCKLE BOXING

Along with grappling, boxing or pugilism is one of the oldest forms of defense. Even today in our modern era, without having boxing skills you really are at a disadvantage when it comes to defending yourself. Learn the ancient art of boxing re-applied for the modern arena we now find ourselves living in.

WILD MOVEMENT

From silently stalking wild animals for food, to movement as a method of avoiding danger, our ancient ancestors were adapt at understanding the full range and magnificence of their bodies. In our modern era, with so much of our time spent in sedentary lifestyle we have lost that innate wild movement ability. At the Primal-Skillz Camp we aim to teach you to reawaken your body in movement, so that you can enjoy moving at ease, while knowing how that movement can aid you in becoming fully self-reliant.

INNER DEFENSE

It's one thing knowing the right physical techniques it is another to bring them forward when faced fear. In this section of training we will teach you how to remain calm, focused and present in high stress environments, making your physical skill sets unstoppable.

WARRIOR PHILOSOPHY

When the ancient world, especially the Greeks turned to philosophy, the warriors embraced one specific philosophical approach above all others: Stoicism. Being a warrior has always encompassed survival, the minimization of need and attachment. At the Primal-Skillz Camp we will immerse you in Stoic philosophy so you too can develop those same character traits of warriors who have come before, and in doing so enable you to take on the martial arts of everyday life more skillfully.

The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You trade in your sense for an act. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask. There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.”
