About Frank McCarroll

Our Creator: Frank McCarroll

Escape and Evade Frank McCarrollEscape & Evade was designed by a professional educator who has a reached a high level of proficiency in all ranges of fighting. McCarroll’s unique combination of fighting skills and experience as a professional educator make him the ideal person to design a self-defense curriculum that is both efficient in it’s training methods and effective in application.

In a real self-defense situation 100% of your energy should be focused on escape and evasion. Taking a stand and fighting back is not only a waste of valuable energy but it is an inherently flawed approach to survival. There is a reason why zebras don’t turn around and take on a pride of lions when threatened; it’s not effective.
