NAVY SEAL TRAINING Academy for Civilians...

As a retired Navy SEAL of 24-years service,  I train, direct, supervise, and I'm responsible for every aspect of the Navy SEAL BUD/S Preparation Training conducted here.

All my friends are Navy SEALs, family members are Navy SEALs,  all our Training Instructors are Navy SEALs, and when you get through BUDS Training in the Navy, you'll be stationed in San Diego or "here" in Norfolk, Virginia at a SEAL Team.
I work my ASS OFF to show you guys, younger or older, what Navy SEAL, BUDS Training and ALL US Military Special Forces training programs are like.
I keep the prices as LOW as possible, and provide BUD/S Preparation Training here that is only second to actual SEAL Training in the Navy.
Guys come here to better themselves through adversity, they come here to “WIN.”  Nobody pays for a course to lose or feel bad about themselves, nobody comes here to take last place, get embarrassed, or be humiliated.
There is NEVER a good reason to lower someone’s self esteem or confidence.
There is NEVER a good reason to destroy someone’s dreams.
Running a “Proper” training course requires skill, YEARS of experience, and die-hard motivation to get it right and show guys what SEAL Training in the Navy really like.
Grab a weapon; get on the Helo… I’ll show you what Special Forces Training is like… and you'll have a HOOT...

Navy SEAL Training conducted here is for "ANYONE." Cops attend our Navy SEAL Training, Teachers attend our Navy SEAL Training, Doctors and Fathers attend our Navy SEAL Training, and our primary goal is to better each man and get some Fire Breathing, Pipe Swinging Bad-asses through BUDS Training to become Navy SEALs!

Want to be a Navy SEAL? Fine.

Don’t want to be a Navy SEAL? Fine.

Don’t want anything to do with the Military? Fine.

Want to become a Marine, Ranger, Special Forces, Para Rescue, SAS? GREAT...

Why do guys come here for Navy SEAL Training? Because they need a Challenge and to get the EDGE you can’t find in a book or a tape. Here you learn it by doing it, and you do it through ADVERSITY, you learn why so many guys fail SEAL Training in the Navy!

What do they get? A powerful new outlook, a fresh mind-set, and graduates leave ready to conquer life’s toughest Challenges.

They learn that no matter the obstacle in front of them, no matter the wall they face, they go over, under, around. They fight and fight hard for everything. Nothing can stop you, except you!

You only have so much time on the Planet. You might as well "Kick Some Major Ass" while you're around.

We take care of, and provide EVERYTHING...

Our "SEAL Advanced Course," basic entry level course, is seven days long and includes "Hell Night" on the first training day. The objective of Hell Night is to build Confidence and Teamwork. A demanding, grueling, 24-hours, there is something inside all of us, something very deep, it's a side of yourself that you never knew existed.

We show you that side, your finest, your best, and you’ll always be able to call on it after Hell Night here. It’s up to you, and only you. That’s what we teach here, we show you your Kick Ass side!

Travel to Norfolk, Virginia and experience extreme challenges that will begin to change your life in the first five minutes. You stay at our cabin; We feed you like a fat man, everything is provided, just bring some recommended gear and a game face. We take care of everything else! See "Gear List for Training."

This experience will show you the training it takes to make SEALs and how they use extreme self motivation to push past mental blocks achieve mission success. This training will make you take a hard look inside yourself.

This training is for anyone whether your goal is to become a SEAL or you just can’t watch another Reality Show on the tube.

Our courses are about bettering yourself no matter what you do in life. To succeed at anything, to really succeed, no matter what obstacle you face, you need incredible drive and motivation. There is one way to learn those; from the guys who have survived the "Toughest Military Training in the World."

You’ll get it here, from us, from the best.

Now shut those soup coolers and get signed up!!!

Senior chief,

I don't know if you remember me but I did 2 weeks with ESE a year ago today just about. When I went to your class I wasn't sure what to expect. But you gave me the mental drive to follow my dream. When I attended ESE I weighed 230 with a max push ups of 48, situps of 52, and pullups of 6. I have been non stop training since then, taking pst's every week in Coronado. Now I weigh 158, with a swim time of 8:06, push ups 94, sit ups 91, pullups 21 and a 8:45 1.5 mile run time. I found out today that out of the draft they started for seal candidates that I was selected for a contract. I'm sure your familiar with what's expected now days in pst scores, and the new seal challenge draft. I just wanted to thank you for helping my find myself. I'm motivated, determined, and I will not quit. I have been working out with ex seal commander every day during the week down at NAB in Coronado. None if this I feel wouldn't have been possible of I didn't go to ESE last year. I have totally changed as a person with a whole new mind set.

Thank you very much


Still unsure about attending a Training Course here??? Get the DVD and I'll refund the price when you arrive... Click HERE...
