The foundation and nucleus of the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ is based upon what the body will do prior to any training, making it the fastest, most natural way to move the human body.
This process cuts muscle-memory training by about 80%, allowing anyone to improve more quickly and with greater confidence. Retention of the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ mechanics is vastly superior as the tactics taught are based on natural movements.
The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™, developed by Tony Blauer, is based on his pioneering research on the psychological, emotional and bio-mechanic realities of close quarter combat. His program, is referred to as '3-DIMENSIONAL BEHAVIORAL TACTICS', because it is the first 'genetically' inspired close quarter combat system; remember, most systems rely on muscle-memory drills to create and develop their arsenal, but the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ toolbox is inspired by how the body actually wants to move.
From a 'tactics' perspective, the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ is not based on a 'sport-model' where balance, distance and tools are agreed upon. The system is based on a 'street model' that takes into account fear, reflexive flinches and emotions as mitigating influences during high stress confrontations. The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ methodology then capitalizes on this instinctual process and converts the energy and movement of these behaviorally based reactions into tactical options. In short, our system incorporates psychological, emotional and bio-mechanic truths to form a synergistic, realistic, protective system.
