Muzzle strike to the face with our first working model.
This was our prototype suit being tested by NAVSPECWARCEN in 1993

High Gear was designed in 1988 by Tony Blauer.
The gear took 5 years to design, refine and bring to market.

The first order that helped launch the brand was by the US Navy Advanced Combat Training Group in Coronado, CA. Over the years High Gear has made its way into major training organizations like FLETC to the best MMA gyms like Randy Couture's Extreme Couture, Greg Jackson, Joe Lauzon, Urijah Faber, BJ Penn and more.

"When I designed High Gear I was looking to create a suit that was so light and mobile that the athlete’s speed and intensity were not compromised. At the same time I wanted an impact reduction design that offered realistic protection from accidental and incidental impact in scenarios as well as good protection from realistic contact. This combination allowed scenarios and isolation drills to produce real training stress and therefore true stress-inoculation (the fastest and most reliable way to learn to manage fear). Fear and adrenaline were always present during training because neither role-player/athlete could sit back and allow the gear to take the shot for them. Impact reduction meant the strike still hurt. My original goal was to make realistic training realistic. Mission accomplished." - Coach Tony Blauer

Special Unit Fully Integrates SPEAR, High Gear & BMFs

The video was made a year after Blauer Tactical ran the Singapore Police trainers through several custom courses from SPEAR System Essentials to our BMF Scenario Training and our PSD drills. We created specific scenarios for their AO.

You'll immediately recognize our High Gear, and if you understand the foundational principle of the SPEAR System - fingers splayed/arms outside 90 - you'll see it used to counter every ambush in almost every contact drill. The proactive version of the SPEAR tactic is then applied to their crowd penetration scenarios.

"The BMF formula can adapt to any training scenario, system and in any environment. Performed correctly, it incorporates pain management, impact threshold drills, reaction time principles, pre-contact cue development and improves combative spontaneity and much more.” Click here for a full explanation of the BMF system.

Let's jump on a call to discuss our program.

  • We can help reduce injuries in training and in the street.

  • An independent study conducted in the UK, showed a 43% reduction in head trauma during street altercations after just one 8-hour training day of the SPEAR System. 

  • That substantial reduction in head trauma directly impacts everything, from officer safety to department liability.
