151: Know Fear | Tony Blauer

Fear is something that every single one of us experiences but the reality is that most of us don’t know how to adequately face it when it rears its ugly head. Your ability to understand your fear and how to use it to your advantage may be the difference between life and death.

Today, I’m joined by Tony Blauer with Blauer Tactical System in a conversation every man needs to hear. We talk about handling confrontation effectively, when violence is the answer, how to become what Tony calls a “courageous bystander,” and how you can become more powerful by knowing your fear.

Tony Blauer

Tony Blauer My guest today is Tony Blauer. Tony  is a self-defense expert and the creator of the SPEAR system which stands for Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response.

I know that’s a mouthful but what he’s been able to learn, develop, and teach is how to harness the body’s natural defense mechanisms to respond to a threat of violence effectively.

He’s been training special forces and LEOs since the 80’s and is one of the only experts who has successfully affected training across all the combat-related communities: self-defense, combat sports and the military & law enforcement sector.

Today, you’re going to hear the passion in his voice as he talks with us about stepping into the role of protector for ourselves, our families, and our communities.
