TONY BLAUER’S S.P.E.A.R/P.D.R. SYSTEM – Authorised spear:pdr affiliate

The ability to protect yourself or a loved one is
inarguably the single most important skill you can possess.
-Coach Tony Blauer



Tony Blauer’s Personal Defense Readiness (P.D.R.) system is the personal and professional version of the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ which is taught to military and law enforcement personnel around the globe and is the result of over thirty years of research in to violent encounters. 


The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™, standing for Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response, is a ‘behaviourally’ researched, close quarter personal defence method that utilises the body’s natural flinches and reactions to fear or violence and then converts these reactions into efficient tactical choices. Because the system is “Genetically wired and behaviourally inspired™”, anybody can learn it and everybody can do it. It is the only self-defence method that fully integrates the body’s reflexive responses and instinctive survival mechanisms making the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM the easiest, most natural way to protect yourself.

Strategically and tactically speaking, the courses are based on how real confrontations actually occur!


Teaching methodology is based on understanding of the 3 D’s – Detect, Defuse, Defend. DETECT the threat early enough to avoid it; if not, learn how to DEFUSE the situation to limit the threat and only then DEFEND if we have to. Students learn realistic self-defence skills that are street applicable and are exposed to role playing to simulate encounters and to prepare them to react legally, ethically as well as decisively to real-life aggression. The curriculum covers verbal defusing tactics, choice speech principles and a host of other behaviourally researched strategies.


The program also includes unique and patented learning models but most importantly, they have pioneered research on how to manage and overcome fear.


Blauer Tactical Systems have been leading the scenario/behavioural approach to training for over 30 years.  The curriculum is based on a ‘3-Dimensional’ theory that creates confidence on an emotional, psychological and physical level.


When you train in the SPEAR System with us you will learn:
● How to reconnect with your intuition and instincts
● How to recognise 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
● How to reconnect to the human weapon system
● That 80% of confrontations can be avoided or defused
● 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 and will reawaken your situational awareness and teach you a patented approach to identifying and managing fear; the program includes an effective verbal de-escalation system and the most raw and direct approach to personal defence using natural and instinctive bio-mechanics.
