High Level Fitness, 13 Feb 2006 [cached]
Noah Spear is the head Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor at High Level Fitness.Noah began his training in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under the tutelage of Steve Maxwell Carlos Henrique and Royce and Rorian Gracie in 1996 and has been training and instructing ever since.
Noah found himself a student of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu by way of his search to add some mental and physical discipline to his life.After a brief stint in the arts of Aikido and Tae Kwon Do within the collegiate setting, Noah watched a UFC - Ultimate Fighting Championship - match involving Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Royce Gracie.
It was then that Noah discovered the martial art that was right for him; he watched the Gracie fighter dominate a much larger opponent in a way that appealed to him - with mental and physical finesse - rather than strikes only.
Noah immediately took to the art and in his first year of practice, having had little to no training in the martial arts won the Gracie National Championship.Since then, he has achieved medals in local, national and worldwide competitions.Most recently he took first place in the 2004 Copa Atlantica Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Championships in both the brown belt light-heavy-weight division as well as the open-weight division.
Noah has been able to direct his experience and training in the art in various directions throughout his life, including getting involved in self-defense tailored specifically to women.In 1998 he became a "Rape Safe" co-instructor providing support and teaching physical and mental rape prevention techniques.Noah has since developed a similar program specifically for High Level Fitness called R.O.A.R - Realistic Options Against Rape.R.O.A.R. is a no-nonsense tactical approach toward teaching women to gain their composure and safety during sexually and physically driven attacks so that they can have the skills to create an opportunity to escape unharmed.This program allows the participants to practice and improve their techniques and drills to increase their physical and mental confidences in a safe environment.
Currently, Noah is a student of Temple University working toward a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and intends to graduate in 2005.As a result of his interest in this Brazilian martial art and his travels to the country to compete, he has also developed a functional proficiency with continental and Brazilian Portugese.
