EP32: Tony Blauer on Knowing Fear

Coach Tony Blauer has been in the martial art, self-defense, defensive tactics, and combatives industry for over four decades. He founded Blauer Tactical Systems (BTS) in 1985 and it has grown into one of the world’s leading consulting companies specializing in the research and development of performance psychology, personal safety, and close quarter tactics & scenario-based training for law enforcement, military, and professional self-defense instructors.His research on the neuroscience of fear and the startle-flinch lead to the development of the SPEAR System  a modern personal defense system based on physiology, physics, and psychology. It has been used by defensive tactics and combative trainers all over the world for over 30 years. 

In Today’s episode Coach Blauer and I discuss all of the things we need to know to not only protect ourselves and those we love but also how to protect our most important asset. Our Mind. Tony Blauer is more than just a guy who can teach you how to dodge a punch. He can teach you how to reframe your entire brain so you can dodge bullshit as well.

I’ve been a fan of Tony’s work for a really long time. Which is why I wrote this article on the blog about his mind-set. It was an honor to talk to the man. I hope that anyone who loves someone and wants them to be safe, will listen to this podcast and share it with others.
