To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.

-Bertrand Russell

Every day we hear from people asking about Rift’s Art of Escape class. Our most successful survival training to date seems to be getting an air of urban legend notoriety, complete with the same aura of mystery shrouding it.

It’s not that we don’t enjoy the content of our trainings being talked about like something out of Mission Impossible (spoiler alert: we do!) But we actually want to make our escape techniques something everyone can use. So, in the name of exposition, we collaborated with master editor and filmmaker Rich Hyatt ( to produce an exciting new “movie trailer” for Art of Escape. We’re thrilled to debut our video – we feel like it really captures the heart and soul of what Rift Recon is about. We hope you enjoy it!
