[05/13/19]   Congratulations to our recent 4 year NM CCW renewal students.

Great class and good shooting!

[03/15/19]   We are sickened by the violence in New Zealand.

Our hearts reach out to the victims and their families.

We applaud the bravery of those young men who tried to fight. We honor you.

Monsters should be rooted out of the shadows, dragged into the light, weighed, and if found wanting, dealt with.

[03/12/19]   Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is not the answer to every problem. Seriously. Get up off the ground.

Tourniquet the Limbs, Pack the Junctions, Seal the Box

Training for the fight is good. Training for after the fight is also just as important.

http://darkangelmedical.com/blog/tourniquet-the-limbs-pack-the-junctions-seal-the-box/

darkangelmedical.com So, let’s talk a little bit about tourniquets, hemostatic agents and chest seals. So much has changed in the last few years concerning tourniquet use, thankfully. Tourniquets were the "last resort" for many years and still are in many civilian settings. However, thankfully times have changed and a...

Gun rights are about equal rights and keeping a level playing field.

Gun control is what actually creates an imbalance of power.

It does so in three distinct ways:

1.) Gun control ensures that the citizens do not have power to resist governmental or institutional tyranny.

2.) Gun control ensures that the law abiding do not have power to resist criminals.

3.) Gun control ensures that the physically weak do not have power to resist the physically strong and are at their mercy.

We're excited to announce the launch of our new Hybrid Online/Live New Mexico Concealed Carry Licensing course.

This course combines the best of both worlds of instruction -- Online instruction at your own pace coupled with a live classroom/range day.

The NM Department of Public Safety requirements to qualify for a NM Concealed Carry License require 15 hours total of instruction including a live fire qualification.

Our NM DPS approved hybrid course allows you to finish 8 of those hours in the comfort of your own home, at your own pace, on your internet connected device.

The rest of the course is completed with hands-on instruction by Spatha Instructors at our school in the NE heights and culminates with a live fire qualification. We offer regular class/range days every month - during the week and on weekends.

More information can be found at our website:

Albuquerque Concealed Carry and Fi****ms Training - Spatha

Don't forget we have an upcoming NM CCW Course on December 9th, 10th!

Info can be found here: http://www.spathallc.com/fi****ms-training/

spathallc.com We offer professional Concealed Carry and fi****ms training in Albuquerque, New Mexico to include courses on handgun, rifle, and tactics.

WHO WE ARE

Spatha started out as a means to continue a tradition of excellence in martial and fi****ms training. It has since evolved into a multi-discipline school that offers live and digital instructional courses like no other. Spatha is comprised of a core of individuals of different faiths, beliefs, and backgrounds. All of our instructors are certified, licensed, vetted, and professionals in their respective fields and areas of expertise. Spatha’s primary mission and focus is to discover, produce, test, and then disseminate realistic and effective fi****ms, combatives, martial arts, and self-defense skills, techniques, tactics and strategies to US civilians, law enforcement, and military personnel.

OUR APPROACH

Countless men and women contemplated martial problems and developed strategies to surmount them before we picked up gun or blade or threw a punch under the structure of art. Admittedly, times and tactics have changed and evolved alongside new technology, experience, and societal changes. Core concepts, however, remain the same and so their words and experiences are of value in addition to modern sources. Study is not limited to one culture or system. Miyamoto Musashi’s thoughts are just as relevant as Camillo Agrippa’s. Sun Tzu and Alexander the Great are as worthy of study as Clausewitz and Mattis. Proven strategies and theory have withstood the test of time. That which is of no use is discarded. New material is added as it proven to be of use.

The building blocks of martial competence in any discipline include an attitude of self-reliance, discipline, and a desire for excellence. Physical fitness is a requirement for martial excellence and a goal to be sought. This includes the attributes of speed, balance, flexibility, strength, power, and endurance. These attributes are only developed through dedicated, informed training and we promote and incorporate these activities into our overall training and curriculum.
