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 Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention (SHARP) course has been specifically designed to meet the needs of women when control methods and assault prevention methods are required. Principles and strategies for effectively reducing the likelihood of assault through actual techniques of countering an attack are stressed in this program.
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.
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.
