The S.P.A.S. is an integrated self-defense system based on the Personal Safety Concept.
It is one of the most effective combat systems designed to address issues of human response to extreme situations.
It’s aimed at teaching everyone how to survive in any extreme situation. S.P.A.S. training helps to achieve the main goal of self-defense – making the aggressor abandon his intention, by teaching appropriate tactics and movement patterns. Tactics schemes are divided into 3 segments: escape, withdrawal, suppression. The use of every scheme depends on our assesment of the threatening situation.
S.P.A.S. embraces all aspects of combat and self-defense including hand-to-hand combat, ground fighting, knife fighting, use of different handheld weapons, shooting and physical conditioning programs.
