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.
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 Tactical Team Close-Quarter-Countermeasures Course is designed to provide tactical team operators with non-lethal force options.
