I Hired An FBI Trainer To Kidnap Me

Learning Practical Survival and Self-Reliance Skills

  • Tim Ferriss, the author and human guinea pig, sought guidance from Kevin Reeve, an expert in survival, evasion, resistance, and escape, to learn practical survival and self-reliance skills in just four days.

Escape Techniques

  • Tim learned how to escape from unlawful custody using techniques such as lockpicking and using a Barret.
  • He also learned how to blend into the "baseline" of a neighborhood to avoid being noticed and how to detect and counter surveillance.


  • The most common locks are easy to defeat.
  • The W pick (camel back) is effective 80% of the time.
  • Use a tension wrench in tandem with the pick.
  • Cycle through three different strokes: toothbrush, rock and roll, and AP Nam porn star.

Defeating Car Security Measures

  • Use a Jiggler key to unlock car doors. It works on about 80% of cars.
  • Destructive techniques include using a center punch or a ceramic spark plug casing to break the window.
  • If you don't have a Jiggler, start the car with a crescent wrench and a screwdriver.

Urban Escape and Evasion Training

  • Tim's final challenge involved facing five challenges and escaping the city.
  • Challenges included being stunned, escaping from a moving vehicle, evading pursuit, and disguising oneself.
  • Stress inoculation training is critical for managing adrenaline and performing under duress.

Extended Footage and Interviews

  • Extended footage and interviews are available on 4hourworkweek.com/sltv.
