Dangerous situations can happen to anyone—even when you’re playing it safe. No one ever truly expects to find themselves in danger, so it’s important to prepare yourself for any scenario that may require you to take your life into your own hands.
That’s why former CIA agent Jason Hanson has dedicated his life to teaching people simple—but effective—tricks that anyone can use to escape from a life-or-death predicament. Everyone should memorize these techniques—because one day, they could very well save your life!
It’s always a good idea to be prepared for dangerous situations, no matter how unlikely they seem. You may never have to save yourself from being kidnapped, for instance, but if you do find your hands tied, you’ll be glad you read this…
Jason Hanson was a CIA agent for years and he saw plenty of intense situations unfold while he was on the job. So, he taught a few reporters from the Fox 11 Los Angeles news crew some basic tips for escaping a kidnapping—and these could help you.
Jason first bound his own wrists with duct tape. He wrapped them extra tight because that’s exactly how it would feel for anyone in a kidnapping situation. He then quickly demonstrated his technique—and the reporters were shocked. Was it really as easy as he made it look?
Jason wrapped the wrists of both female correspondents. Once their wrists were securely wrapped, he instructed them to raise their hands over their heads and jerk them downward quickly, pulling her wrists apart as they did so.
Amazingly, the tape snapped apart quite easily! The women couldn’t believe the method worked so well. The force of both arms moving downward and away from each other was enough to tear through several wrapped layers of tape.
