Bear Grylls, of Man Vs Wild fame, has opened his own survival school! It is currently a 6 day course held in the wilds of Scotland. Classes are limited size and teach you survival techniques like making a fire in the pouring rain, building lifesaving emergency shelters, training in knife skills, foraging for grubs and rodents, remote medical trauma, rappelling, extreme weather survival and white-water river crossings. Since it was launched in September this year, classes are limited but expanding. Next year the Academy will start holding classes in Africe and the US as well as offering 3 day courses in addition to the 6 day course.
