Ancient Pathways, LLC - School of Urban Survival and Disaster Preparation Courses [Flagstaff Arizona]


Welcome to Ancient Pathways, LLC
Urban Survival and Disaster Preparation Programs



Disasters, whether natural or manmade, come and go each year. It is through developing a self-reliant mindset, having essential survival gear, and learning a handful of critical skills, that you and your family will be able to prevail in an urban crisis.

Our Approach
Learning survival shouldn’t involve a fear-based approach and at our courses, you won’t hear any doom and gloom rhetoric. Urban Survival training is meant to be empowering as you plan for your specific needs, acquire pertinent skills and find out what gear is really necessary while developing the confidence to face a real-world emergency. Brushfire Threatening Homes - Don't let wildfire catch you off guard!As the saying goes, Victory Loves Preparation.

Because we are a fulltime survival training school, all of our teaching material and each skill have been extensively field-tested to provide you with information that can be relied upon. You won’t find any rehashed, 72-hour federal-agency checklists or reality-show gimmicks. Instruction is done in a professional and intense, yet friendly manner.

Our Urban Survival training, typically unfolds in 1 or 2 day hands-on courses (non-overnight and indoors) which involve lecture, take-home skills, small-group scenarios and individual planning activities for your region. Courses focus on both home-preparation and evacuation strategies, should you be forced to bail-out.

What We Are Not
We are not about conspiracy theories, end-of-the-world gloom, zombie warfare, or anti-government rhetoric.

Training Locations
Courses take place nearly every month in major cities throughout the U.S. and are normally held at hotel conference centers within 30 miles of an airport. See our Course listing for a calendar of upcoming events. Urban Skyscraper Scene - Take a better look at how prepared you are when you live in a big city.

We get a lot of requests for custom courses and if you have a group of 5 or more interested people, we can discuss tailoring a course to your specific region and needs. Contact us for specifics on hosting a 1 or 2 Day Urban Survivor Course.
