About The S.P.E.A.R. System:


The S.P.E.A.R. System is a modern close quarter combatives & personal defense program based on science, psychology and human bio- mechanics. It is not a martial art nor does it replace other martial systems. We have standardized and simplified close quarter combatives choices and improved potential effectiveness by basing the close quarter skills on hardwired reflexes and reactions to violence.

Because S.P.E.A.R. System tactics are built upon hard-wired reflexes, the system enhances the defenders ability to weather, deflect or intercept a sudden close quarter “ambush.”
