During the week of January 26, more than 40 trainers from the military and law enforcement community converged on the Blauer Tactical Systems (BTS) world headquarters in Virginia Beach, VA, for instructor certification in the popular close quarter counter ambush program, S.P.E.A.R. Systemâ„¢.

Blauer Tactical Systems - S.P.E.A.R.â„¢ Instructor Course

I was on hand for the last day of the week long course. Attendance ran the gamut from local LE to Federal Agencies to some of our nation’s most elite military units. Additionally, there were some international students on hand and during brief interviews after the graduation, regardless of origin, man or woman, the training was a resounding hit. Often you can write that off to post training high, (the students literally went from a final round of hand to hand exercises at full speed in High Gearâ„¢ to graduation) but this was an instructor course. Most of the students had studied several disciplines yet everyone sang the praises of the S.P.E.A.R.â„¢ system.

As a testament to the value of the training, one local corrections officer paid his own way to the class and worked his schedule in order to attend training. I have no doubt that the skills he learned in this class will one day protect him or one of his coworkers.

Tony Blauer, BTS CEO also commented stating, “It’s a powerful and exciting thing to see so many operators, DT and combatives trainers together at our facility.” He went on to add “It’s very rewarding to know Blauer Tactical is helping our warfighters and law enforcement community.”

As I have said in the past, one of the unique things about Blauer’s training philosophy is that he has developed a self-defense program based on psychology, physiology and kinesiology. The name S.P.E.A.R. says it all; Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response. The system exploits the body’s natural responses to violence and danger. This survival mechanism, dubbed: Startle-Flinch Response has been scientifically integrated into a series of neuro-muscular drills that teaches individuals how to convert their instinctive reactions into protective and combative tactics.
