The S.P.E.A.R. 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 tactics.
CrossFit Long Island Head Coach, Brian Costello, has spent portions of the last year traveling and studying under the SPEAR system and is officially a Certified PDR Coach. Brian, along with CrossFit Defense Certified assistant, Brianne Jackolski, will finally be bringing these methods of defense and protection to CFLI.
The first class begins August 19th, and there will be 2 sections of the class being offered, 1 for males and 1 for females. Each class will be strictly capped at 35 students.
Each course will be 6-hours, and meet for three 2-hour sessions consisting of lecture, technique/drilling, and a short workout in each.
The course will introduce students to the fundamentals of the SPEAR system, helping understand how to prevent and react to danger, and come out on top regardless of the situation. The course can and will help anyone willing to better understand the SPEAR philosophies and personal defense, regardless of physical strength or combat experience.
The course is open to anyone 16 years of age or older.
