High Gear Applications Coach Certification

Friday, November 27th, 2009

Blauer Tactical has some great news for those interested in advanced scenario training, force-on-force drills and role-player programs. They’re launching a brand-new, 2-day WEEKEND instructor certification course. HIGH GEAR Applications Coach is a certification course based on their Ballistic Micro-Fightsâ„¢ & HIGH GEARâ„¢ programs and will be dove-tailed with their popular Instructor Certification. Make sure you check with Blauer for special rates for those attending both courses.

The new course combines all elements of multi-discipline fight training and combines them with the training goals and objectives of Blauer’s 3 C’s Methodology: Clear, Control & Counter. This course is about enhancing training methods, improving safety, and taking your experience to the next level.

This course is open for all combatives, defensive tactics self-defense, and martial art enthusiasts and covers carefully-selected drills from Blauer’s force-on-force courses gleaned over the last 30 years of contact scenarios with martial artists, MMA superstars, police, and warfighters.

The course includes specific blocks of instruction covering:
• Personal defense confrontations
• Situational confrontations (using the BTS Fight House)
• MMA isolation drills (Cage)
• Basic contact striking & grappling skills
• Check out HIGH GEAR in action

Inspired by CrossFit’s huge success holding certs on the weekend, Blauer decided to follow suit with this course as well. Such weekend courses don’t conflict with most work schedules and travel is generally less expensive. Additionally, they’ve also dove-tailed it with their most popular course, the S.P.E.A.R. System: Instructor Certification. This way trainers can combine their S.P.E.A.R. course to include an advanced scenario instructor cert. However, it is important to remember that any serious trainer from any systems, styles, or programs can take the course.

HIGH GEAR will be available at a special price for those attending the certification (it’ll be part of a package deal). For those of you who already own HIGH GEAR but want/need the certification for your agency, unit, self-defense or martial arts school, there will also be a special price of just ‘tuition only’.

*HIGH GEAR will be on hand for rental & T&E for those that do not already own the gear.

Blauer Tactical Systems USA, LLC, recently filed a U.S. patent application for innovations associated with its popular HIGH GEARâ„¢ training suit. BTS is one of the world’s leading consulting companies specializing in the research and development of close quarter tactics & scenario-based training for law enforcement, military and professional self-defense instructors.

BTS is world renowned for their scenario-based training programs that employ a proprietary and revolutionary training suit. The suit can be used with multiple methods of scenario-based training (marking-cartridge training, DT, combatives, self-defense, etc.). The suit is lightweight, provides full mobility, and uses a unique impact reduction design, allowing role-players to engage in realistic and integrated scenarios. Military units, SWAT teams, law enforcement agencies and martial art and MMA schools around the world currently use the HIGH GEARâ„¢ system.

“Our focus, our mission and our path have not wavered since we began teaching real-world self-defense in 1979,” said Tony Blauer, President. “We always seek to maintain our position as a leader in reality-based training for the self-defense world and obtaining a patent helps to recognize and affirm that leadership.”

New Anti-Fog Visor for Blauer High Gear Equipment

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

Blauer Tactical

HIGH GEAR, the world’s most dynamic training equipment for combatives and force-on-force training has begun production and distribution of a new ‘anti-fog’ visor. What makes HIGH GEAR so superior to other products is that you can move in the suit and while it protects you from injury, you still feel the hits which allows you to learn more from drills.

HIGH GEAR from Blauer Tactical Systems

This new Anti-Fog Visor further increases realism associated with use of HIGH GEAR. The wearer will retain the benefits of full face protection but will not suffer such hindrances as decreased vision and hearing.

While HIGH GEAR is used extensively for training by all of our armed services, it’s best known and used to support the U.S Army’s Modern Army Combatives Program (MAC-P). HIGH GEAR serves many purposes, but its most important function is to provide an important layer of safety during realistic scenario training. It can be used for combatives and force-on-force drills like ECP procedures, vehicle extractions, as well as all aspects of detainee handling. HIGH GEAR can also be used for FTX’s where marking cartridge projectiles like Simunitions, UTM, and AirSoft are used.

With the huge popularity of MMA within the military, HIGH GEAR can also be used to increase safety during sparring and pure MMA-type training.
