"All fights are dangerous, but the ambush is the most dangerous fight of all." 

"There are two types of confrontations you must be ready for. There's the typical “uncooperative person” or 'resisting' scenario. But there's another confrontation that most don't consider, and that's a sudden, violent ambush. This fight is very different. It's responsible for almost all the serious injuries [and worse] to first responders around the world. This type of sudden violence triggers primal reactions and requires a different type of preparation and training. Are you prepared for that attack?

I can help you see fights differently, prepare differently, you'll be safer sooner by using a system that is already hard-wired inside you."

The SPEAR System is a standardized and simplified close-quarter personal defense program based on science, psychology, and human bio- mechanics. This modern system is based on hard-wired reflexes and enhances the ability to detect, deflect, avoid or defend a sudden close quarter ambush. This system is not a martial art nor does it replace other defensive training systems. Our system is designed to provide a bridge between the sudden onset of an attack and the skills the responder already possesses, so the design will enhance any already existing program of training.
