The idea of being kidnapped is equally terrifying as it is unlikely. Despite this, there are new stories of individuals being kidnapped every day. For this reason, it can be good to have basic strategies for escaping a kidnapper. One common example is kicking out the brake light of a car if you’re ever locked inside a truck. Recently, an organization has come up with a strategy for escaping zip ties.
Brian Black is the founder of Imminent Threat Solutions or ITS. He was previously in the U.S. Navy. While serving, he learned a lot about taking care of himself during dangerous circumstances. After he left the military, he founded ITS.
ITS is a website that teaches its readers skills that can help get them out of unsafe situations. One such situation is kidnapping. Kidnappers often use zip ties to bind their victim’s hands. Admittedly, some will prefer to use rope or duct tape.
ITS released a youtube video demonstrating how to escape zip ties if the victim’s hands are bound in front of them. In the video, the instructor tightly binds his hands with a zip tie. The tighter they are, the easier it will be to escape. He then proceeds to bring his arms down quickly while “chicken-winging” his arms.
Essentially, he raises his arms up and then brings them down quickly with his arms in a triangular position. While it is very unlikely you will ever be kidnapped, knowing techniques like this could make the difference between life and death.
