Edged Weapon Countermeasures


The new Edged Weapon Countermeasures course is based upon the reality of an imminent Lethal Force Engagement. As with our Tactical Firearms System (being chaired by Aubrey Futrell), we adopted human factor variabilities of a narrow bandwidth, and the Incapacitation Template.


  • Check
  • Distract & Disrupt (distract cognitive intent, while disrupting homeostasis and balance)
  • Assess (situational awareness and postural control)
  • Incapacitate (with immediate and decisive effects)


The HFRG Spontaneous Knife Defense System is designed to meet the needs of students who are confronted by a spontaneous knife assault and unable to retrieve a weapon.
The HFRG Escape and Evasion Instructor Course provides insight into the principles of avoidance, escape, and evasion.
Health care facilities and services are constantly faced with the increased violence toward their staff. The HFRG Violent Patient Management System is specifically designed to control patient violence using medically approved techniques that meet the control needs of staff, while meeting the liability concerns of administrators.
