Weapons training, student of human behavior, risk- and conflict-management, professional-consulting, writer
Darren Patrick Friesen
System-subversive, hoplologist, counter-violence professional, and sport-duelist, Darren has been focusing on the weapons-arts for over 25 years with a bastard mix of backyard, low-tech, undeveloped-world, stripped-down, fight-fundamentalist methods in a number of different thoroughly-studied arms and armed-systems added to from nature, experience, nurture, influence, environment, and training. He is a perpetual and cerebral student of human behavior, reaction, pattern, and action, having also run 2 highly-successful and top-caliber social-media professional/peer-pages with many of the industry’s top exponents participating. Darren has a unique perspective of personal-safety, human-adaptation, and counter-violence as a Canadian living in Central America for the last decade. There, he’s also taught functional use-of-force to civilians and multiple security-companies in a much more dangerous environment and on a very different platform than most Western suburban club-owners. Blindly-loyal to no style, system, method, instructor, or tribe…his mission statement has been a perspective of truth, non-bias, evolution, and rationality…generally a rare counter-industry one. He has been, as is his calling-card, a voice of reason, calm, logic, and common-sense throughout the crisis with a big-picture focus and vision-of-direction few in the industry have utilized. The world is changing, be on the front-line of that change.
