Blauer Tactical Systems Training Announcement: Extreme Close Quarter Instructor Certification


This certification course has been integrated within progressive law enforcement & military training units. It is a must for all tactical operators & trainers.

S.P.E.A.R.: “Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response” is a groundbreaking system that teaches officers & operators to convert the startle/flinch reaction into a tactical response. The system deals directly with extreme close quarter attacks; addresses surprise attacks as well as “sudden” resistance during “arrest & control” moments. The program also teaches LEO’s to dis-engage to transition to O/C, baton or firearm or engage with CQC skills. This 5-day course will cover SPEAR SYSTEM DT & combative drills and deals specifically with extreme close quarter confidence. It therefore applies to everyone in law enforcement from trainers, to UC, SWAT, Corrections and so on.
