About Us

The Frederick Tactical Instructors teach a method called C.O.B.R.A ” Combat. Objective. Battle. Ready. Application.” and  “Personal Defense Readiness,” based on The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ by Tony Blauer.

The Combat Objective Battle Ready Applications or C.O.B.R.A.™ self-defense program is designed to be highly effective in real world situations where your survival is on the line. C.O.B.R.A.™ was created from experience in law enforcement, close quarter combat techniques and martial arts with further extensive study on the psychology of criminal intent and realistic self defense. This system was designed with the sole purpose of personal safety and defense.

The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ is the only self-defense method that fully integrates the body’s reflexive responses and instinctive survival mechanisms making it the easiest, most natural way to protect yourself. Mr. Blauer has pioneered research on how to manage and overcome fear, and his program includes unique and patented learning models based on this research. Beyond that, though, he, and his certified instructors, only teach defense skills that are realistic and street applicable. No time is wasted practicing drills and simulations only useful to movie stuntmen or in martial arts competitions and exhibitions.

John Frederick has over twenty years of both military and combative training.
