SAFER IN A DAY! The Be Your Own BodyGuard seminar 

The ability to protect yourself or a loved one is the single greatest skill you could possess. What if learning how to be your own bodyguard was much easier than you thought? This intensive course will give you the foundational knowledge to improve your situational awareness, verbal skills and equip you with simple & practical self defense skills. 

The 'No-nonsense Self-defense' program is called: Be Your Own Bodyguard and was researched, developed by Coach Tony Blauer, a pioneer of modern self-defense. He has created a system based on physiology and natural biomechanics called SPEAR, it's based on the startle-flinch response, which is part of the human survival reflex. This is an 80,000 year old DNA hard-wired into our survival system - to say it's stood the test is understatement. What this really means is you already have the key to the system hardwired in you. 


Join Tony Blauer, the founder of the System & developer for this private seminar & workshop.  You'll learn the research and science behind the words first behaviorally based self-defense & combatives program. Attendees will also learn the essential drills to continue their practice of the program.

The SPEAR System is a modern close quarter combatives & personal defense program based on science, psychology and human bio- mechanics. It is not a martial art nor does it replace other martial systems. We have standardized and simplified close quarter combatives choices and improved potential effectiveness by basing the close quarter skills on hardwired reflexes and reactions to violence.
