Spontaneous Knife Defense

Goals:

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. It is based upon a realistic, yet highly aggressive, check-and-stun philosophy that employs gross motor skills that are compatible with the affects of survival stress.

It reviews the fundamentals of basic knife systems; reviews the common grips, types of strokes, and lines of attack; and reviews defense strategies for both stalking assaults and spontaneous assaults inside the reactionary gap.

Description:

  • Use of Force Human Factors
  • Instructor Development and Training Protocols
  • HFRG Control Principles
  • Principles of Edged Weapon Assaults 
  • Vital Edged Weapon Targets
  • Fundamentals of Knife Martial Arts
  • HFRG Spontaneous Knife Defense System

Topics:

  1. To examine survival learning research and design methods for spontaneous knife defense systems.
  2. To identify the primary and secondary methods of offensive knife strategies.
  3. To teach the PPCT Spontaneous Knife Defense System and training methodology.
  4. To refine student technique to the instructor level.
  5. To teach instructional methods designed to enhance a student’s ability to learn survival techniques, increase his/her confidence level, and assist in the successful application of physical techniques.

This 40-hour course is designed to teach students to teach others how to create and facilitate court-defensible practical learning simulations that closely replicate the environments and stress levels officers face in real-life street situations, to allow students to experience such events in a safe learning environment where they can make mistakes and learn from them without risk to their personal safety.
The HFRG Disruptive Student Management Course is designed to control the “physical actions” of student violence.
The Threat Pattern Recognition Use of Force (TPR UoF) Manual is the newest version of the the successful Defensive Tactics program taught by HFRG/PPCT for close to 40 years.
