    BTS Files Patent for High Gear System

    Thursday, August 27th, 2009

    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 High Gear

    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.”

    Nicholas Horbaczewski, Blauer’s Chief Operating Officer, said, “We are proud of our innovative designs and features with our HIGH GEAR™ system, which we continue to improve. Seeking protection for our latest evolutionary enhancements allows us to continue as the exclusive provider of the best training suit on the market today.”

    Personal Defense Readiness Website

    Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

    Blauer Tactical Systems (BTS) has just launched a website for its Personal Defense Readiness™ division. The new site, pdrteam.com, is a portal for everything related to BTS’s Personal Defense Readiness (PDR) program and also serves as a resource for PDR coaches around the world to connect, share training tips, and network with one another.

    The site has two interfaces: one public portal for those interested in personal safety, as well as information for martial artists and self-defense instructors as well as a second private section for certified PDR coaches. This section will include:

    • Training Videos
    • A Map of PDR Coaches Worldwide
    • Personal Defense Training Tips
    • The Latest Listing of PDR Courses
    • Information on Becoming a PDR Coach

    Renowned self-defense specialist Tony Blauer developed the PDR program for the general public. PDR is based on the S.P.E.A.R. (Spontaneous Protection Enabled Accelerated Response) Systemâ„¢, which is the only self-defense method that fully integrates the body’s reflexive responses and instinctive survival mechanisms.

    PDR training provides realistic self-defense skills that are street applicable and integrates well with all martial arts and self defense programs. Students are exposed to aggressive, as well as defensive role-playing to simulate encounters and prepare them to react ethically and decisively to real-life aggression. The program also centers on BTS research on fear management, leading to greater self-knowledge and personal evolution. Consistent training also helps with achieving overall physical fitness, improved strength, cardiovascular conditioning, weight management and coordination.

    Blauer & Pincus To Present Combined Course

    Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

    The founders of Blauer Tactical Systems and I.C.E. Training Company will team up November 2-3, 2009, in Virginia Beach, Virginia to offer a tactical workshop that blends essential & fundamental skills from both Combat Focus Shooting and the S.P.E.A.R. System’s Personal Defense Program. This dynamic two day course addresses armed and unarmed confrontations.

    Rob Pincus conducting training

    The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM (Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response) is a scientifically researched and medically reviewed personal defense measure that exploits the body’s natural responses to violence and danger. This survival mechanism, dubbed the 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.

    The Combat Focus Shooting (CFS) Program is an intuitive shooting program that is designed to work efficiently with the body’s natural reactions during a dynamic critical incident. This approach makes CFS Skills easy to learn and maintain for students of all backgrounds, military, law enforcement or self-defense.

    Unlike many traditional programs, CFS does not take a purely mechanical approach to shooting training in isolation from the context in which the skill must be used. CFS is not simply “point shooting,” it is a training methodology that leads to more efficient defensive shooting skill.

    This two-day course will take place at the Blauer Training Facility and on a live-fire range. The course is $450.00 and is open to military, security and law enforcement personnel, as well as those interested in personal defense. (Background checks will be conducted.) Students should bring a firearm, holster, three magazines and 600 rounds of ammunition.

    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.

    Blauer Tactical Systems will be conducting demos at the ADS Warrior Expo in Virginia Beach, VA this week. If you’re attending the show, make sure you stop by their booth.

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

    Thursday, February 12th, 2009

    Blauer Tactical

    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.
