ASP Handcuffs

asp handcuffs

 

I stopped by the ASP handcuff booth at Shot Show.  I wanted to check out their new line of cuffs, and look at other models I may not have had a chance to play with before.

 

I did have the opportunity to speak with and spend some time with the head of their training division and also and executive.  We had a good discussion on the cuffs, new and older models, and the pro’s and con’s (vulnerabilities) of the models.

They were polite and professional, and decided they wanted to work together to do some testing or R&D.

I did discover that the paws can be changed out in some of their models.  From single to double or triple, and they can even have a “training” paw put in.  I will have some of these shortly and will post more on these and make a video as well.

 

Triple Seven Gear

I have had several of these pouches for a while now.  I can say they are well thought out in design, durable, and a convenient size for every need from pocket EDC to car door to backpack/carry bag.

I love these pouches, as they have so many uses that you can put together any kind of kit that you want handy, for whatever purpose suites you.

Art of Escape class

Kellys class anti kidnappingThis class was the invention of Kelly Alwood.  A fresh new course designed specifically for disaster survival in the USA.

Kelly flew out to San Francisco in Dec 2013 and met with TAD gear (Tripple Aught Design apparel) and Rift Recon.  TAD was launching there new CORE training program at their new SF location.  Kelly spoke with Brett (TAD owner) and Eric of Rift Recon about designing a new fresh class for the first class at launch.  Kelly designed a new course.  An urban bug/ survival course.  Kelly provided the IP (class content, PPT’s etc) and agreed to teach the first 2 classes himself.  Kelly did travel to SF and personally teach both classes.  One in January and one in February.  Kelly trained the Rift Recon crew how to set up the class and run it.

After returning home Kelly was informed by formal letter that Rift Recon would be teaching the class without Kelly’s consent or involvement or compensation.  Rift Recon also stated that they would continue to use the Art of Escape name as well.  Rift Recon did acknowledge that the IP (actual class content) did belong to Kelly.  The letter from Rift Recon stated that Rift Recon would not use any of the original content that Kelly provided.  However, Rift Recon is using the same course description as before.  Rift Recon is also not telling students that Kelly is no longer teaching the class and that the class in completely different than what was advertised and what they signed up for.

This is a public notice.  Kelly Alwood is NOT teaching the Art of Escape class.  The content of the class is stolen IP, or the course description is completely false.  Rift Recon did NOT pay for the IP content of this course.  Rift Recon recorded with audio and video my entire course.  They had the audio transcribed.  Rift Recon is still advertising this course as it was when Kelly taught the class.  Rift Recon is using audio and video from the classes Kelly taught for advertising the class.

Neither Kelly Alwood or TAD has any affiliation with Rift Recon at this point.  Both Kelly and TAD had made Rift Recon aware that the quality of service Rift Recon provided students was sub standard.  Set up and execution on the part of Rift Recon was not up to Kelly Alwood or TAD Gear standards.  Rift Recon was given specific details of preparations and arrangements to be made for Kelly to teach the class.  Most of which were not even attempted to be made.  Kelly and TAD informed Rift Recon that we could not attach our names to the classes if they did not fulfill their obligations to the students.

Rift Recons responce was to claim the class as their own, and to contact friends and instructors of Kelly Alwood to go out and teach Kelly’s class in SF without Kelly’s permission.  They were refused.  No indication is given as to who is actually teaching this class now.  Students signing up dont know who the instructor is, or what is actually in the class.  Rift Recon has left everything the same on their website to fool students into thinking Kelly was still teaching his class.  Kelly Alwood is not teaching the class, and the class is NOT what is in the description, as Rift Recon has stated that the class is mine and they wont teach the same thing.

Kelly Alwood and Kevin Reeve still teach the Urban Escape and Evasion class all over the country.  Sign up for one of those and get the real deal.

Personel Security; How your hotel room gets broken into

How many times have you walked into your hotel room or office and said “something isnt right”?  You dont know what, but something is not like it was.  Well, your probably not crazy or imagining things.

A great blog post with pictures, video, and a complete description of how its done is found here:

http://alwoodlocksport.com/2014/03/how-criminals-break-into-your-hotel-and-office-in-seconds/

It also explains a couple very quick ways to stop this attack.

Dont use Masterlock padlocks for security

This is a quick video of an 11 YO boy with no practice picking open a Masterlock padlock.

Dont trust your security to a Masterlock product.  Use a high quality, military grade + Commando padlock found here:
