Bryant Mendoza, 21. I attend CSUF as a graphic design major and a leader for the CSUF Adventure club. I love the outdoors, cooking, Muay Thai boxing, shooting, and spending time with my dog Finn among many other things.
For many years, I've traveled the country teaching and training others in Outdoor Self-Reliance and Wilderness Survival skills. I've trained everyone from civilian, to scouts, to military personnel the skills they need to help keep them alive.
Currently, I hold the world record at starting a fire by rubbing sticks together, so making fire by primitive means is a big part of what I do.
I am a Red Cross certified instructor for Wilderness First Aid, basic first aid, CPR, and AED, acertified Combat Life Saver instructor, and am part of a Search and Rescue team.
This group is for anyone who would like to add to their core knowledge of Emergency Preparedness, Survival, and Self Reliance.
All of our Meet-Ups are outdoors, in wilderness settings, where we will explore and work on different skills, with each meet-up focusing on a different topic.
Emergency Fire-Making (primitive and modern)
Rope Craft (Knots, mechanical advantage systems, making cordage)
Outfitting your kit
Land Navigation (map, compass, GPS)
Water Purification methods
Traps and Trapping
Communications (Signalling, Amateur Radio, etc.)
In addition, I will also be offeringFULL Red Cross Wilderness First-Aid Certifications.This class is a 16 hour Course, and fulfills the needs for Scout Leaders and others.
All of our meet ups will be hands-on skill based workshops.
