The Spear System
Founded by Tony Blauer in 1985, BlauerTactical Systems is one of the most respected self-defence training companies in the world.
Coach Tony Blair has perfected the spear system over four decades. He is one of the only combatives experts who has successfully effected training across all combat related communities; self-defense Combat Sports and the military and law enforcement sector. His research on psychology and mindset as it relates to confrontation management has enhanced the survivability of law enforcement, military and emergency services personnel around the world.
Blauer Tactical System specialises in the research and development of close quarter tactics and scenario-based training, for all First Responders.
The spear system is based around the 3 D’s and asks 3 questions:
D1: Detect: Can people detect danger in their surroundings?
D2: Defuse: Can they de-escalate situations from spiraling out of control?
D3: Defend: If push comes to shove, can I defend themselves in a legally compliant manner?
Other keys areas of the system include:
- Fear and emotional management
- Understanding and applying the body’s natural response to Danger. Known as the startle/flinch convert
‘I believe that hundreds of years from now when the history of this Warrior Renaissance, this golden Age of Warriors, is written that Tony Blauer will be remembered as one of the great pioneers who propelled us forward to the next evolutionary step in Warriorhood. And you can quote me on that!
