Mantracking met Kyt Lyn Walken - Intermediate & Advanced

Terug naar de agenda.

Voor wie?

Bij het spoorvolgen pakken we een spoor op, achtergelaten door een dier of mens. Doel is ongezien uit te komen bij de maker van het spoor... Bij het spoorvolgen komen alle disciplines uit het spoorzoeken samen. Met deze twee cursussen gaan we ons verdiepen in mantracking, het volgen van een spoor gemaakt door een mens. Voor iedereen die zich verder wil bekwamen in mantracking. Deze cursussen worden gegeven voor mensen werkzaam in Search & Rescue, Alpine Rescue, Fire Fighters, IED Prevention, Army, Special Forces, Survival, Forensic, Antipoaching and Wildlife Conservation.

Ditmaal geeft Kyt de intermediate en advanced level workshops. In oktober heeft Kyt de basis cursus gegeven. Die deelnemers hebben nu de kans het gehele programma te voltooien. In principe is het vereist elke nivo te doorlopen. Maar Kyt kan bij voldoende voorkennis een deelnemer het basis of intermediate nivo over laten slaan. Dit in overleg met Kyt, die hierin beslist.

Voor meer informatie en het complete programma, zie onderaan deze pagina.

About mantracking:
The art and science of reading, following and understanding human tracks. Applications are widely known for centuries, since Tracking has been used quite early in the tactical field (Indian Wars, the Vietnam War, the war in Rhodesia, operations in Afghanistan just to name a few) where it is still very valuable (South African army, Marines, Navy SEALs) and Search & Rescue, revealing the great effectiveness of this art in comparison to operations at high cost normally using helicopters or molecular dogs. This ability, used by humans since the early hunters, is disappearing from common knowledge although it still has useful applications in the modern world, such as Surveillance, Search & Rescue, IED Prevention, S.E.R.E., Survival ... Man-Tracking, in particular, focuses on the research and understanding of human signs (also called spoors) and can be extremely effective to prevent criminal and terrorist actions.
