The skill set of the ancient Apache Scout empowers like no other awareness or personal security training can
Apache - Wolverine fighting
The martial skills of the Apache were paramount to their success in their ability to protect and defend the tribe. The lance, stick, and knife were the weapons of choice. The ancient scouts developed their own specialized martial art system. Apache-Wolverine fighting was explosive and brutal. In the Apache Wolverine style of fighting the warrior must react swiftly to the threat with purpose releasing the animal within.
Beyond the physical
Beyond the traditional physical and martial skill of warrior training, A Scout Path delves deeply into the psychological skill set of the Apache tradition. The Shadow warriors as they were often called by other tribes developed to perfection the ability to move across a landscape silently and invisibly without detection. And while living off the land.
Invisibility and Camouflage
The ancient Scouts read the landscape like a book noticing even the smallest disturbance. Masters of inner and outer camouflage the Apache Scout could appear out of nowhere causing surprise, fear, and confusion among the enemy.

A Scouts Path - personal security and outdoor survival course based on the instruction and training I received in the Way of the Scout taught by Tom Brown Jr. As taught to Tom through his mentor and teacher Stalking Wolf a Lipan Apache Scout of the ancient tradition.
As with all instruction at Lifesong Wilderness Adventures, our goal is to improve your skill and your comfort level dramatically in the outdoors.
NOTE: A Scouts Path derives its methodology and philosophy from the ancient Apache Scouts dedication to service, respect, and peace. "Apache Scouts are great negotiators and are the last to pick up the lance." There is always another option available to fear and fighting.
Some of the most powerful and effective ancient Apache Scouts are women
Of Victorio's sister Lozen; Nana said of Lozen, "Though she is a woman, there is no warrior more worthy than the sister of Victorio."
