Pioneering Merit Badge


Troop Meeting "Knot Fu" 

Taught by Knot Fu Sensei Ben Walker in
Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Council
(Registered Merit Badge Counselor, but not affiliated with the BSA)

The pioneering Merit Badge is a one or two day workshop,
for your Troop & Scout Families

Have your SPL and Scoutmaster look at this webpage, and then contact Sensei Ben. The NEXT STEP is for your Troop to book our inexpensive TROOP MEETING to experience knot magic and to learn basic Knot Fu skills. Sensei Ben will awaken the Game of Scouting in your Scouts. Scoutcraft trains Scouts in leadership, by it's nature. Ben requests that every Scout and Scouter in your Troop participates. The skills that Sensei Ben teaches are over-the-top. Seeing is believing, so book a TROOP MEETING first. 

After the TROOP MEETING session, your Troop may additionally book a Pioneering Merit Badge Weekend, held at our Tribal Wisdom Academy forest campus near Los Gatos. This includes a serious Pioneering Project with lashing ropes and our professional Lodgepole Sapling Poles.

Or during one of your regular Troop weekend campouts:  We travel to your campout location and present our professional Pioneering Merit Badge Program, complete with Knot Fu. 

The scale and power of these authentic pioneer skills will move your Troop to the next level. Ben has lived with actual pioneer tribes in the African wilderness and will guide your boys in the historic style and methods. We will cook on a campfire and Ben will tell his real-life adventure stories of using Boy Scout skills in over 30 countries. The goal is to guide each boy toward creating their own personal life-story through the empowerment of traditional Scout skills. 

You may include parents and siblings when booking these private LLC events. We are a registered Limited Liability Company, with our own insurance policy.
