For those who don’t know what’s happening in the video, she untied her shoelaces, pulled one through the inside of the zip tie binding her hands, then tied the shoelaces together. Then, by pulling downward and back and forth on the shoelaces with her feet, she created enough friction to wear away part of the ziptie, making it weak enough to snap right off her hands.

Dependent on people using an older lock, but on the off chance it becomes necessary, picking a bike lock with a pen
Picking a padlock (a bit specific on the lock type, but it’s relevant in case you’ve gotta get out of any place held closed with one of these)
And they have a bunch of martial arts/self-defense stuff on The Modern Rogue:
