The ability to protect yourself or a loved one
is inarguably, the single greatest skill you could possess.

What if learning self-defense was easier than you thought?

The SPEAR SYSTEM utilizes the speed and reliability of the startle-flinch mechanism to convert the sudden attack into a tactical counter.

It is a bridge between the reactive brain and the cognitive brain.

This improves reaction time during a confrontation.

“The SPEAR System combines the old brain’s most important function, to survive, with the new brain’s intelligence, to think and decide, we have reawakened a non-perishable personal defense counter-measure that can make every human being safer, sooner.”
— Coach Blauer

Reverse Engineered Self-Defense.
For Humans.

Hundreds of people, from all over the world have found the SPEAR System to be not only incredibly easy to learn and apply, but our courses are fun! You don't leave a Blauer Tactical seminar paranoid - you leave prepared!

Founder, Coach Tony Blauer has been featured in over 100 magazines around the world, from Black Belt to Forbes.

RESPONSE-ABILITY [THE ABILITY TO RESPOND]
”The harsh reality is that your personal safety is your responsibility. Your ability to detect, defuse or defend yourself rests on your shoulders. It’s your responsibility.

Your safety, like your fitness, is up to you too.

On Game Day, You either have the ability to respond or you don’t and that’s your responsibility too.”
— Coach Tony Blauer
  1. The SPEAR System is based on an 80,000 year old genetic survival response that helped keep our ancestors alive. 
  2. Your reptilian brain wants you to survive.
  3. It’s initial response to danger is to protect your head and push you away from danger. 
  4. “Danger” is detected via the limbic system. This triggers an instinctive survival response called the 'startle-flinch' response.
  5. This survival reflex is hard-wired in you.
  6. When it is triggered, it bypasses cognition. This is neurophysiology.  
  7. This explains why no one looks cool in a real fight and why you almost never see technical martial arts being used in real violent encounters. 
  8. The SPEAR System harnesses this energy, then exploits its by converting it into a focused counter-measure. This is kinetics & physics. 
  9. This movement is protective by nature and tactical by design and its all organic, your body-mind produces this.
  10. The SPEAR System combines the fastest human response (the startle-flinch) with the strongest natural human kinetic movement (the crossed-extensor reflex), making the SPEAR a simple to learn, extremely effective method of personal defense regardless of gender, age, or size.
“Neurophysiology and brain-based learning is the next frontier in human performance.”
— Coach Tony Blauer

This isn't what it looks like. This is a demonstration of physics and the startle-flinch response. When you flinch your fingers splay and your hands push away the danger. The beauty of the SPEAR System is that we harness that energy and then teach participants how to redirect the kinetic energy using this instinctive movement. This makes the SPEAR System the easiest self-defense protocol to learn because the movement is already hard-wired in you.

“Back in the day, castles created the illusion of safety. Over time, this eroded our survival instincts and skills. The walls are long gone.

Domestication has made us complacent, dulled awareness and stymied physicality. Political correctness has diluted our voice and assertiveness.

Now, during a violent encounter, most people wait, hoping & praying the cavalry will rush in. They do... eventually.

People need to realize that they are the ‘first-responder’ in their violent encounter.”
— Coach Tony Blauer
