“The ability to protect yourself or a loved one
is the single greatest skill you could possess.”
– Coach Tony Blauer

What if learning how to protect yourself was much easier than you thought? That was the inspiration Coach Tony Blauer had over thirty years ago. He noticed that no one really used technical martial arts in real confrontations.

When you train with us you will learn:

  • How to reconnect with your intuition and instincts.
  • How to recognize a fear spike and how to listen to its signals and, most importantly, how to manage fear.
  • Simple, functional movements based on how real people move 

    Training in the SPEAR System will teach anyone:
  • How to reconnect to the human weapon system.
  • That 80% of confrontations could have been avoided.
  • The Three D’s: How to detect danger, how to defuse and de-escalate and, if push comes to shove, to defend.
  • A simple and practical system that’s congruent with your emotional psychological state during a confrontation.

The SPEAR System can be used by anyone looking for a simple and effective system of self-protection.

The Blauer SPEAR System’s approach to self-defense will reawaken your situational awareness and teach you a patented approach to identifying and managing fear; the program includes an effectiveverbal de-escalation system and the most raw and direct approach to personal defense using natural biomechanics.

Blauer Tactical Systems® research on the startle/flinch phenomena and its link to the survival system’s withdrawal reflex has spawned one of the most important evolutions in close quarter training: the SPEARSystem®, which utilizes the speed and reliability of the startle/flinch mechanism to convert the sudden attack into a tactical counter.

The SPEAR System® is considered the world’s first and only behaviorally-based close self-defense system. It is based on science, psychology, and human biomechanics. It uses hard-wired reflexes toenhance personal defense by improving anyone’s ability to detect, intercept, and defend a sudden close quarter ambush.

The SPEAR System is not a martial art nor does it replace other martial art systems. SPEAR is the studyof human movement as it relates to violence, fear, and aggression.
