Adventurist Frederick Schuett launched One Axe Pursuits in 2001 to use outdoor adventure as a vehicle to promote active lifestyles.

The corporate team-building division helps create cohesiveness among groups, and film-industry services?such as stunt work and training?keep movie stars and the cardboard cut-outs they use as stunt doubles safe and intact.
