On the night before Art of Escape NYC, we were interviewed and featured on one of NYC’s biggest local TV stations and the nightly news.
Ayana Harry interviewed Eric Michaud about our first NYC class and asked great questions about who takes Art of Escape, and why. We were especially entertained to see the station use clips from our video - and shots of actor Liam Neeson from the film “Taken.”
To meet demand, we now have five additional seats for Art of Escape NYC: Sign up here.
If you want to sign up at the last minute (class starts at 9AM in the Financial District), call us at 415.795.3402 and find out if you can jump the waiting list.

For the past five months Rift Recon’s renowned Art of Escape (AoE) trainings have been at the forefront of a surging survival subculture. Those living within accessible distance of San Francisco, the company’s home base, have inarguably been the most fortunate. As the rave reviews came pouring in, however, so did the requests to bring AOE to different parts of the country. Rift Recon is proud to announce that the first satellite AoE intensive will be held in one of the most fascinating cities in the world: Manhattan, NYC.
East Coast participants can expect to garner the same skills as they would in a standard training, such as how to pick, bypass, and open locks; open handcuffs, duct tape, and rope; as well as effectively utilize social engineering and active confidence schemes to their advantage. The training, led by lead trainer Brian O’Shea, CEO Eric Michaud and Rift staff, will close with a day-long abduction simulation designed to put the students’ newfound knowledge into practice. They’ll have to gain the trust of their captors, break free of their restraints, escape by gaining access to restricted or unauthorized areas without detection, and much, much more. In addition to the pre-existing curriculum, the training will include specially tailored lessons and challenges that are specific to NYC. Participants should prepare for the unexpected, the unknown, and the unimaginable.
