  • S.P.E.A.R. System

    I'm sure a lot of you have heard about Tony Blauer's S.P.E.A.R. system. I just started a 2 day training class today which is being taught by another Ranger. This system is really good. In the 4 hour block we had today (another 5 hours tonight) I learned so much more than I thought I could. It's quite a paradigm shift in going from "create distance by moving backwards" to the "create distance by forward movement" mindset... but wow... I'm already a firm believer. If any of you get a chance to learn it.. I highly recommend it.

    Anyone else on o.com trained with it?

    Our agency started teaching it about 6 months back. I think it is a good system, but its not the solve-all-problems system. Just like any other technique, its another good tool in the toolbox and has its uses.
    Sheriff: We just take turns being the sheriff. It's real easy. You just hang out here, eat some pie, and get drunk.
    Peter Griffin: Wait. Hold on a second. "Pie," "drunk," "the?" You got yourself a sheriff!

      Interesting

      I have never heard about SPEAR here in Spain, I have checked their website and I have got convinced, it seems to be very useful and effective. My problem is that I can't access to that training here because it doesn't exist, so that I would need to attend to any SPEAR course in the States.
      After reviewing SPEAR website I couldn't find info about course prices, does anybody know about that?

        my last two DT classes had a little bit of it. It's ok, but I doub't I'll use it.

        OTOH, I was talking to another officer who used it followed by an elbow strike and knocked the guy out. He said he liked it

          SPEAR has some good points to it, just be careful with some of the tactics. Remember that Wisconsin use of force is based on the DAAT model and anything that deviates from that opens you up to liability concerns. I'm all for learning new tactics that give you an edge, but also learn how to effectively justify the tactic in writing and orally.

            Exactly. This is why I'm hoping it'll be worked into the DAAT system and taught at the academies before I ever have to spear someone. The guy who trained me it attempting at working it into the DNR's DAAT curriculum. He's already trained quite a few wardens. Some of the things you can use spear with are easily articulated, i.e. a sucker punch.
