We’re very pleased to announce that James Bath has joined the instructional team at Frontier Bushcraft. James joins as a Senior Instructor.
James is a popular and respected professional bushcraft instructor who is already well-known to many students of wilderness bushcraft.
James is one of only a few people worldwide who have been recognised by Ray Mears as a bushcraft instructor, being awarded the celebrated antler-handled Woodlore instructor’s knife.
At the time of writing, this makes Frontier Bushcraft the only bushcraft school anywhere to have two instructors who have received this accolade.
James and I were previously colleagues at Woodlore Ltd., after I hired James onto the staff there.
James quickly proved his worth as a solid, reliable, flexible and quick-thinking team-player. This combined with his natural affinity with the great outdoors and ability to instruct and lead a group, saw him progress rapidly in his chosen career as a professional bushcraft instructor. This trajectory saw James rise to the position of Woodlore’s Head of Operations.
Those who know James will attest to his irrepressible sense of humour as well as his utter dependability. There are very few people to whom I would trust my life. James is one of them.
James and I always worked very well together and previously formed a very successful instructional partnership. We are both very happy to be working together again.
About joining Frontier Bushcraft James says “I’m very much looking forward to working with Paul and the Frontier Bushcraft team again. We have spent countless weeks camped out and travelling together while working on bushcraft courses and I can’t wait for the next course season.”
James is a key hire for us. His presence significantly bolsters our team, giving Frontier Bushcraft one of the strongest instructional teams of any bushcraft school.
What all of this translates to is that, for us, James is a great guy to work with; for you, he is a great instructor to spend time with and learn from.
Please leave a comment and join us in welcoming James to his new position.
