Zip Tie Escape

In case you have ever been kidnapped or unlawfully constrained by a zip tie, take a look at this simple zip tie escape trick:

Have you ever found yourself in a street fight or been forced to defend yourself? Whether you may have said the wrong thing to somebody, or you’re being mugged, you should know what to do in order to effectively get out of the situation without sustaining injuries.

Below is a list of the top ten self defense techniques:

10 – You’re not in a movie. When thinking about a situation where you are forced into a physical altercation, it may be tempting to think of action heroes like Bruce Lee and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Avoid this temptation and appreciate the gravity of situation. Do not stop striking your opponent until you’re convinced that he/she is incapacitated.

9. Your goal is not to win. Be cautious not to do any more damage than is necessary to escape the situation. If you hurt your opponent by using excessive force, you may find yourself in court and eventually in jail. Only cause as much damage as is necessary to allow yourself to flee from the situation.

8. Know your limits. If your opponent has a dangerous weapon on hand, do not engage them in physical violence. Instead, comply with their demands. Losing $40 and a bunch of credit cards is not worth your life. You are not likely to win in a fight against a deadly weapon, so avoid the temptation.

7. Remain calm. It may be natural to panic in a situation such as this, with your fight or flight biological instinct activated. Try to resist that urge and remain calm. Containing your composure can prove to be a very effective technique in a situation like this. The easiest way to do this is to be confident and believe that you will escape the situation unharmed.

6. You can sustain a few hits. Commonly in street fights, when one person takes a few hits, they may give up all hope of winning the fight. Receiving punishment is not pleasurable, but it’s not the end of the world. Maintain your composure and continue hitting your opponent.

5. There are no rules. Unlike a hockey game where there are specific rules and boundaries you must follow, it isn’t the same situation on the street. All rules are out the window and anything goes. You can pinch, pull hair, gouge eyes, bite or whatever you need to do to escape. Use whatever means necessary to free yourself.

4. Strike first. Do not let your opponent hit you first. If you do, you’re making a bad situation much worse. Hitting first forces the attacker to defend themselves, something they are likely not used to doing.

3. Close the distance. Borrowing from Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, whenever you find yourself in a self defense situation, close the distance between you and your attacker as quickly as possible. If you remain too close for him/her to strike you, then you won’t get hurt.

2. Take them to the ground. However possible, take your opponent to the ground. If you’ve ever had experience wrestling, you know how powerful it is to be the one on top of your opponent. If you gain top position, you can strike your opponent without getting attacked.

1. Keep your hands up. Something you may have heard from boxing is that you should keep your hands up at all times. If you do this, you’ll be much better at self defense and also be in a position to strike your opponent quickly. Do not let your hands down, regardless of how tired you may be.

A serious error in judgment on my behalf has put me at risk of ID theft. During a phone call I supplied personal info to someone who I believed was with Revenue Canada. Immediately after I realized I had fallen for the CRA scam. Shame on me!  Since the incident I've been frantically taking steps to fend off the dire repercussions that such a mistake can have. This has included: Filing a police report, Filing a report with the Canada Anti Fraud center, Adding flags to my bank accounts, Putting up Fraud alerts on the 2 main credit bureau's. I've even purchased some Identity theft tracker software to monitor my info. I contacted Investigation hotline to see if there was any additional measures I could take. The agent applauded me on the steps I had already taken. They also had knowledge about the CRA phone scam itself that helped settle my nerves somewhat. With all the fear and anxiety I've been enduring for the last while it was assuring to speak with someone familiar with the actual risk potential.

I called investigation hotline after I provided somebody a home renovation and they refused to pay, I tried to bring them to court- hired a lawyer and found out I was given false information on the contract. After speaking with Mitch and explaining my situation I felt that he sincerely cared about my case and was quick to find out the information I needed. Within a couple of days, he had all the information I needed. I could not thank Mitch enough. I would highly recommend investigation hotline to anybody as I feel they are experts in the field and act fast and work efficiently. I felt that Mitch had a deep understanding of what I was going through and was empathic and understanding. I could not thank him enough and will be using this service again if needed. Kaitie S

Apr 02, 2018 I needed an investigator on Sunday Easter Week End. No one cared about the situation except this Company. The investigator was dispatched to the location without minutes. did not care about the Money to be prepaid or secured. The investigator took it personal. He felt of my situation and Specially when it came to my kids issues. My Ex-wife was cheating in a hotel north east of Toronto. He Located her within 1/2 Hour. This a true story; I never thought Investigator cared about the situation but the money.. This company did not care about the money, they finished the job, send me the invoice and i Paid him more than what he asked for. Sometimes money does not mean any thing to some one wants to get a load off his back and find the truth about his wife,,,, FOR SURE THIS COMPANY TOOK A HUGE LOAD OFF MY BACK. THANK YOU SO MUCH JOE MICHIGAN
