Threat Pattern Recognition Use of Force


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.

Updated in the spring of 2017, the TPR UoF manual covers new areas of research in defensive tactics training, including:


  • Threat Pattern Recognition Methodology
  • HFRG Design Methodology
  • Combat Human Factors
  • Combat Use of Force and Survival Principles
  • Identifying the Limits of Firefight Performance
  • The Threat Pattern Recognition (TPR) Solution


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 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 Defensive Tactics System is the first subject control system developed through tactical, legal and medical research.
