lockpicking workshops 

Teaching you the secrets of Houdini whilst CHANNELING mission impossible .......

We'll teach you the closely guarded secrets that the movie companies tried to hide for years.

How does it work ? We deliver in a style to suit your team, whether it's for a group of international lawyers, security experts or jugglers. A PowerPoint presentation  lays out the underlying principles, the history and different types of locks. We cover the legal issues,  the tools involved and how to use them.

How many can join in ? Whether its one to one tuition or in groups, each team gets a personal lock picking trainer, and each member gets a practice lock and a set of lock picks and in no time they will be opening locks like Houdini.  We then move on to more difficult locks and that is when the fun really starts (up to fifteen guests in a team but ten is preferred) up to 40 guests can be trained at once. 

How long? Each workshop is designed around your requirements . "only got ten / twenty minutes?  we can do that, but it's much more fun over an hour or more with a couple of beers .... and we can introduce a timed competition with each team competing aginst the other with harder and harder locks....lock puzzles .. hand cuffs...     We can also arrange for each p[articipant to receive their own set of pocket lock picks as a memento.

Is it safe? 

Peter started his circus career juggling axes and breathing fire as " Captain Dangerous" and it all went downhill from there... .

He was a senior lecturer in Sport and Recreation Management and later a  Health and Safety Officer and used knife throwing and fire eating to teach students H&S.

 This gave him the skills and knowledge to convince Equity to insure his antics and on it goes from there..
