However,I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and hope the "zombie" thing is just a "tip of the hat" to the current "zombie craze" and you actually know what you are doing.
Oh yeah, and what is your background/certifications/wher e did you acquire this knowledge? Just want to make sure you have real world experience and didn't just read a couple survival books and start offering book reports in the form of survival courses.
As teen I earned my Arrow of Light in Boy Scouts, and already attended multiple Outdoor orienteering courses offered at Southern University Branch in Ironton. Upon recreational and personal survival training I was like a fish in the water in the wild.
I jumped on the Gracie bandwagon in í93 and began my study of BJJ and Jujitsu in local courses. By the time I enlisted in the Marines I felt I was well rounded on survival and basic hand to hand.
I graduated with Honors from Parris Island Marine Recruit Depot. In between training at Camp Johnson and Camp Geiger in security I received instruction from Special Forces Recon Instructors on advanced tactics offered as optional courses. It wasnít until I was stationed at Camp Lejeune I began furthering my training in various martial arts. I attended Butch Valez JuJitsu Iaido and a brother chapter of Kodokahn Judo. In addition to basic hand to hand the marine corp offered, I excelled in their Marine Corp Close Combat training program (mccctp) and received my instructor certification.
I was attached to a Navy corpsman unit providing combat security. I took my career serious and participated in any extra circular courses the Marine Corp had to offer. I studied NBC Warfare, Profiling and integration plus have experience in this field, and I was a few jumps away from earning my jump wings. I also received instruction in profiling, and hostile interrogations from UN coalition forces. I later put that to use in real world experience.
Upon receiving injuries, I changed my MOS and became a combat tactics instructor for Marines stationed at Camp Johnson. For advanced classes I taught security, and defensive tactics for Army GS 13 and weapon disarms as well as weapon retention techniques. To earn a little pocket change I taught womenís self-defense and rape awareness classes at a local community college.
After my honorable discharge I completed a course in Crisis Intervention from Cornell University in hopes of padding my resume pursing a law enforcement career. I since abandoned pursuit.
I have been a guest speaker and lecturer on traditional Japanese arts and history in numerous Dojoís. I still accept invitations on that as well. It was two years ago I was asked to host a ďZombie Self DefenseĒ Course for Halloween. I got into it and treated the gimmick with professional enthusiasm. It was fun and educational, especially when I had volunteers ďZombiesĒ. Between the mainstream zombie crowd and preppers I fell into a niche. Itís fun, challenging, and educational.

So, my husband and I have been thinking about taking a survival course, not for the end of the world but because we take very long hiking trips and one fall or wrong turn and you just went from a camping trip to a survival scenario if your cell phone isn't getting signal. My husband is already pretty knowledgable but I don't have as much experience and he'd just like to add to his knowledge and brush up on his skills so can you just give a brief description of the courses you offer, approximate locations, and approximate prices with what those prices include and what we would have to provide or bring ourselves and how long the class(es) last..
If you want to participate in a basic survival course it wouldnít be more than a night or two at most. A weekend would do. What I suggest is to make it feel like a workshop study then a lecture. I also do recommend family or friends attend together. I make a great presentation out of the experience with compatibility and comradely among groups of acquaintances. Thereís a certain sobriety when teaching infantry. Civilians need more entertainment and fun.

If you want more specifics as outdoor survival is concerned, I do cold weather and hot weather training. But honestly itís never fun no matter how much I try. I have experience in deserts, woodland and swamps.
You have to understand the dynamics of military combat exercises and civilian emergencies are apples to oranges. One is taught as a sprint to be found as the other is a marathon to stay hidden.
Nutrition is a big factor in short term and long term exposure to the wilderness. Tricks to get you till tomorrow will harm you in the long run.

I am not familiar with the local area here, Iím more familiar with the southern Ohio area, but it doesnít matter to me.

I have a very reasonable price, but it changes depending on location, equipment etc. If you might be interested please ask questions, Iím used to customizing criteria to meet interests.

Not to be offensive, but what you are saying is that you basically have training / experience but you can or choose to water it down? Also, just wondering what exactly to expect on one of these survival weekends?

Haha, no offense taken. If you are asking if itís physically demandingÖ no, and itís not by choice either lol One tubby tubby. If I ever suggested that I was offering a hardcore crash course, I apologize but I am not.
I am simply suggesting that I can make it seriously surreal or just casually fun. As far as private small classes, I prefer no fewer than a couple and large classes no more than 10 or 12. Iíve worked with church youth groups, paintball clubs, martial arts schools, and scouts if that gives you an idea. I do have the ambition to own a retreat type lodging for said activities for a better experience. But mostly I do random camping trips and even lock-ins.

Depending how indepth subjects would include some of the following...
crafting primitive hunting weapons and trapping, shelter construction and fires, water filtration and purification, cooking, navigational techniques, rationing supplies, mending clothes and building tools. Also include scouting, reconnaissance, and scavenging in hostile areas. The dos and doníts of forming a search and rescue party. How to fortify and maximize a defensive perimeter. Basic self-defense would be escapes, counters, strikes, joint locks and strangle holds. Intermediate would be weapon disarms from various positions and situations, and advanced would be in multiple attackers, and hostage situations. I teach tactical insertion in urban settings, room to room search, cover fire, and even military movement formations to drill, which was always what went over big with paintball enthusiasts to military recruiters doing a get together with the deps.

Workshop
Friday Night, thru Sunday Night.
50$ a person.
I would provide dinner only.
Days and afternoons would be mixed instruction. Evenings would consist of survival training and applications. Nights would consist of a light military exercise or hand to hand instruction. Experience includes war stories, military history of techniques, and open discussion on criteria.

Combat Clinic
Sunday night thru Friday night
150$ a person.
Much more centered on hand to hand combat and military formations including drills and exercises.

Nope, and even though the lady asked several times in a single paragraph that I was responding to, I apologize if I came across as a snob to you. If it makes you feel any better about yourself I canít hold down a normal job, Iím borderline homeless, and I shop at Goodwill. Congrats youíve won in life.

Donít require a business license. Donít require Insurance. Donít even care for a company website, business cards, or paid advertising or marketing. I prefer to work with simple conditions and word of mouth. I extended an invitation for discussion to a few people on here because I thought one was genuine. If no one responds Iíll disappear and leave the comments to others. Quite frankly I turned down several camps this year already. If you have any questions Iíll answer honestly.

Thank you for responding and semper fi
