SPEAR Instructor Certification

Event Info
Monday, March 4, 2019 - 8:00am to Thursday, March 7, 2019 - 4:00pm

The SPEAR SYSTEM is the world’s first and only behaviorally-based close quarter defensive tactics and personal defense program.  It is based on science, psychology and human biomechanics.  It uses hard-wired reflexes to enhance an officer’s ability to detect, intercept, and defend a sudden close quarter ambush.  This system is not a martial art nor does it replace other defensive training systems.  The SPEAR System provides a bridge between the sudden onset of an attack and the DT skills an officer already possesses, so the design will enhance any existing program.

This Trainer Development Program allows agency instructors to introduce a full SOP/ROE into their agency’s Use of Force Model covering recognition of pre-assault behavior, Startle/Flinch Conversion Theory, Counter Ambush Policy Development, Close Quarter Tactics and scenario/drill development.  The new format for SPEAR 5.0 will enhance an officer’s ability to identify pre-contact cues, allowing more incidents to be resolved with less violence.  This course will enable instructor graduates to increase the safety of officers within their agency, regardless of the officer’s age, gender or size.

The course is delivered in a blended training format and includes pre-loaded video and materials for registered students.  This will accelerate the learning process and maximize the practical application and drill time allowed in class.  While the approach taken involves a “brain-based” curriculum, this course is physical in nature.  Students should be prepared for physical training and wear clothing suitable for defensive tactics exercises.  The course will be conducted by Blauer Tactical Systems, Inc., located in Encinitas, California
