Your personal safety and your success in your security career matter to us. We offer certification programs for those in the enforcement, security and investigators fields.  Individualized, custom programs can be developed and delivered for clients who have specific needs. Tip of Spear is the only facility in Alberta that offers civilian self-defense training using the most effective method available: IKMF Krav Maga.


We have on-line programs, in-class courses at our facility, as well as trainers that can come to your worksite to provide the education your staff requires.  Whether you are a large company that needs the occasional instructor to cover for a staff instructor illness or injury, or the smaller company that wants to focus on service and sales rather than retail security, Tip of Spear staff are here to help you achieve your goals.

Our Vision

We believe every life is precious and deserves to be safe and protected as a basic human right. We are passionate about giving people the opportunity to learn and build the self-confidence and skills to protect themselves and those they are responsible for, and ultimately enjoy a peaceful life.

Our Mission

To provide professional, practical, world-class, current, effective education in security, defensive tactics and self-defense to civilians and the enforcement community, in order to keep not only themselves safe on and off the job, but the communities they live in and serve. 

The "Tip of Spear" Name

"Tip of the Spear" is a term that military tacticians use to reference the first combat force that punctures the enemy's initial lines of defense.  In more recent usage, it means to be a trailblazer; the first to venture into a new endeavor. We are passionate about providing current, cutting edge training to these "first responders".
