Reviews

“Justin Sage Williams not only has great skills but he also has the ability to effectively teach those skills to others. His instruction on my handrill technique led to a fat ember on my board, in the Eastern Woodlands at that. He’s professional and courteous, and amazingly devoid of unnecessary ego BS, which can be a rarity in this field. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone serious about learning bushcraft and survival skills.”

“Justin is a very confident and effective teacher.  He does a great job of commanding attention and relaying his message to the audience.  I had him come speak to my Outdoor Living class at Glendale High School in Springfield, MO and the kids thought it was awesome.  He did a great job of relating to them, poking fun and keeping them engaged for the entire class period.  He lead off by talking about the most important aspects of survival in general, then demonstrated how to build a quick shelter using a tarp and also a couple of different fire starting techniques, including a bow drill.  Overall, really impressive.  One of the best guest speakers I’ve had in any class in 15+ years of teaching.  Will definitely look forward to bringing him back in for future classes later in the school year.”
