Our Team

The Instructors at the Hong Kong Wilderness Training Centre come from all walks of life; each one has his or her own unique interests, and carries his or her own unique values. But there are two things that we all have in common at the HKWTC:

Number one, for his or her own individual reasons, we have all fallen in love with the activities and lives of the wilderness;
And secondly, we all believe that, no matter what activities, being in the wilderness doesn’t necessarily require the taking of blind risks – through professional training, we believe one could learn to evaluate and mitigate the risks associated with outdoor activities.

We are all happy to share, professionally and humbly, with every single student coming to our classes, the techniques and knowledge that we have acquired through our own experiences.
If, for some reasons, you have also fallen for the wild; and if you find our philosophy agreeable, you are more than welcome to join our team!
