      It sure is, (and it has nadda to do with MMA/BJJ) it was designed as a teaching tool based on military combatives.

      From their website:

      Blauer Tactical Systems (BTS) is one of the world's leading consulting companies specializing in the research and development of close quarter tactics & scenario-based training for law enforcement, military and professional self-defense instructors.

      During the 1980's, BTS pioneered reality-based self-defense with their ground-breaking 'Panic Attack' drill, the design of the world's first functional scenario-based training suit and the first self-defense program based on psychology, physiology and kinesiology.

      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. HIGH GEAR™ is considered to be the world's most dynamic role-player gear because it allows trainers to engage in realistic and integrated scenarios in practically any environment. BTS has developed an analytic & systematic approach to scenario training by reverse-engineering real world confrontations. This program is called Ballistic Micro-fights™.

      BTS is now a world-leader in the design of force-on-force training equipment, as well as program management for police defensive tactics, military combative training, close quarter combatives, and personal defense training. HIGH GEAR™, Ballistic Micro-fights™ and the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ are now used by many of the world's leading DT, Combatives and self-defense instructors to augment their personal defense skills.

      Our focus, our mission and our path have not wavered since we began teaching real-world self-defense in 1979... we have been on the cutting-edge of reality-based training for the self-defense world ever since.

        Tony trains MMA fighters as well. In fact you'll see some of them at his training camps.

          Ben and Jason,

          I will have to disagree with you both here. As Wing Chun practitioner, Ben and I have heard no end that we need to add ground fighting to our game (I trained in Judo for a couple of years).

          Just as the wing chun fighter has to except that the fight can go to the ground, so does a woman who is training for self defense. This can and will end up in a man on top situation. The woman must be used to fighting from this position and BJJ and Judo both have a lot to offer here. Not unimportant here also is that a person training in these arts will fatigue a lot more slowly when fighting from below.

          As to the surface, when the adrenalin cuts in concrete or gravel or a judo mat are all irrelevant. Do the techniques as trained a you will survive with cuts and bruises. You won't notice any pain or discomfort until after the shock wares off.
