Rob Pincus and Tony Blauer will team up for the first time
to teach their flagship programs this fall in Virginia Beach, VA.
“I am really excited about this project,” said Pincus, “Tony
is one of the most effective teachers in the industry and the S.P.E.A.R. System
changed the way I looked at unarmed defensive tactics. This is going to be a
Pincus began training in S.P.E.A.R. System almost a decade
ago and there has always been a strong crossover between SPEAR and CFS
students. In addition to Pincus, Cliff Byerly and Omari Broussard (picture
below with Tony and Rob) of Viking
Combatives are also certified to teach both programs. Omari wrote an
article for this newsletter last year that spoke to the Synergy between the
two programs, along with Greg Glasman’s Crossfit.
This is a great article for those of you who are interested in the course or
any of the programs individually from the perspective of the only person
certified to teach all three.
The event in November is going to be a truly unique

Blauer & Rob Pincus To Present Combined Course
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The founders of Blauer Tactical Systems and I.C.E. Training Company will team up November 2-3, 2009, in Virginia Beach, VA to offer a tactical
workshop that blends essential & fundamental skills from both Combat Focus Shooting & the S.P.E.A.R. System’s
Personal Defense Program. This dynamic
2-day course addresses armed and unarmed confrontations.
SYSTEM (Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response) is
a scientifically researched & medically reviewed personal defense measure
that exploits the body’s natural responses to violence and danger. This
survival mechanism, dubbed: Startle-Flinch
Response has been scientifically integrated into a series of
neuro-muscular drills that teaches individuals how to convert their instinctive
reactions into protective and combative
The Combat Focus
Shooting (CFS) Program is an intuitive shooting program that is designed to
work efficiently with the body's natural reactions during a dynamic critical
incident. This approach makes CFS Skills easy to learn and maintain for
students of all backgrounds, military, law enforcement or self-defense.
Unlike many traditional programs, CFS does not take a purely
mechanical approach to shooting training in isolation from the context in which
the skill must be used. CFS is not simply "point shooting," it is a
training methodology that leads to more efficient defensive shooting skill.
This two-day course will take place at the Blauer Training
Facility and on a live-fire range.
The course is $450.00
and is open to military, security and law enforcement personnel as well as
those interested in personal defense. Students must be U.S. Citizens. Students
should bring a firearm, holster, three magazines and 600 rounds of ammunition.
