Learn about SCARS (Special Combat Aggressive Reactionary System)

Special Combat Aggressive Reactionary System (or better known as SCARS) is a military martial arts program that was taught to US Navy Seals in the 1980s and 1990s. This system was developed by Jerry Peterson, a former member of the Army Reaction Force of the 173rd Airborne Charlie Company.

The SCARS program focuses on punches, kicks, leverages, grabs, grappling, multiple attackers, counter carjacking, defenses against weapon attacks, etc. According to SCARS.com, this system is different from many other martial arts because it is focused on "human movement and psychological survival under do-or-die conditions". Beyond using standard martial arts techniques, SCARS uses "a process to eliminate fear… Military SCARS is considered highly aggressive due to the utilization of Jerry Peterson’s process to eliminate fear from the mind during combat. This is the first system to use a purely offensive mindset throughout the entire use of the system."

SCARS is primarily taught via seminars, instructional DVDs and online training. SCARS does not have any of its own martial arts schools. This program is primarily aimed at military and law enforcement personnel but SCARS also has a civilian version.
