Jax Locksport, a chapter of TOOOL (The Open Organization Of Lockpickers), aims to teach people the fundamentals of how locks work and how they can be picked. We have a zero tolerance policy for people who want to pick locks for malicious purposes, but most people are just interested in the mechanical aspect and treating a lock as a puzzle.
Information Security professionals find this a valuable skill for penetration tests. We cater to the Information Security crowd, which often has some overlap with the Maker crowd, but we also make this accessible to hobbyists and beginners.
Georgia law does not discriminate against the use of lock picks or training to pick locks, unless there is evidence of intent to break and enter. We supply locks and picks, so there is no worry about any such violation.
The Lock Pick Village includes a wide variety of locks and picks for people to try, with one-on-one training sessions or group sessions as needed.
