On the first day, students learn how to pick locks. Instructions on day two include how to covertly navigate a city's streets. Then, on day three, students are kidnapped and must escape. This is the general premise of Rift Recon's Art of Escape training course in San Francisco and this is the story of how that program, started by Eric Michaud and Brian O'Shea, came to be.
