International S.P.A.S. Federation
The International S.P.A.S. Federation was established in 2014, gathering clubs that had been involved in teaching S.P.A.S. and other hand-to-hand combat systems. Currently, it has branches in 4 countries: Russia, Poland, Ukraine and Belarus.
There are over 7000 students who accomplished S.P.A.S. training programs.
Although S.P.A.S. is a system initially created for self-defense and not for sport competition, our students are multiple medalists of amateur hand-to-hand combat, knife combat and grappling tournaments.
The International S.P.A.S. Federation was established to popularize S.P.A.S. combat system and to enable:
- improvement of regular people’s personal safety
- development of training systems for various units
- popularization of sport and healthy lifestyle
- cooperation with organizations from around the world in the area of self-defense
The International S.P.A.S. Federation offers a full range of training courses and full training programs, considering different levels. After completing each level, students of S.P.A.S. are subjected to validation, aimed at determining the level of the student and verification of skills acquired during training. Those who successfully pass validation, receive a certificate entitling them to participate in the next level of S.P.A.S. training.
High requirements for S.P.A.S. instructors guarantee a high level of education, in accordance with international guidelines of the ISF. The main task of the ISF is professional training of instructors and supervision over the process of teaching the S.P.A.S. system wherever it operates.
