WHAT IS THE CAVE OF ADULLAM?
Historically the Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy (CATTA) is the place where David spent the majority of his time hiding from King Saul (1 Sam 22:1). The Bible says that 400 men gathered unto David that were distressed, in debt and discontented; and David became their leader. When these men finally exited the Cave of Adullam, they were referred to as “David’s Mighty Men of Valor” and together they fought to establish and stabilize Israel.
Today, the CAATA is based in Detroit Michigan where boys who are emotionally distressed, mentally discontented and spiritually in debt, gather here to be trained and transformed into comprehensive men of the Most High. We are able to accomplish this mission through our Emotional Stability Training® (EST).
Emotional Stability Training® (EST)
EST exposes the root of unresolved anger, anxieties, lack of focus and fears, while teaching our recruits how to introspectively confront and conquer negative emotions with composure. EST’s focus is to wean the soul (i.e. the emotional seat of man) so that the spirit of a man can move freely and rule the responses of the soul. Instead of a belt ranking system, we evaluate each recruit by the way they live their lives in school, at home and in their communities. We place a strong emphasis on biblical brotherhood, where each recruit is more concerned about sharpening each other (Pro 27:17), instead of surpassing each other.
Below are the targeted results that we typically see from our CATTA program.
- Improved academic performance
- Detentions/Suspensions reduced and/or eliminated
- Improved relationship and social/emotional behavior with parents, teachers and classmates
- Ability to resolve conflict
- The confidence to walk away from a fight (if possible)
- Greater Sense of Individual purpose & community responsibility
- Increased physical fitness and endurance
