Tony Blauer’s 2017 Annual SPEAR System & PDR Combatives Camp is coming back to Las Vegas! This camp is not just for law enforcement, CrossFitters or martial artists. It is for anyone who wants to improve their personal safety, awareness or self-defense skills.

Course Schedule:

Saturday: 8:15am - 9:00am Registration
               9:00am - 5:00pm Training
Sunday:   9:00am - 4:00pm Training


AM: The SPEAR Tool Box

Weathering the ambush has been the big "aha moment" for most people. We often get asked what martial art complements the SPEAR.... well, our system is a complete personal defense program. 

In this block attendees will learn what's inside our arsenal and the way we throw knees, shin kicks, elbows, forearms, palm strikes, rakes, and headbutts.

We will also take you through the SPEAR form variations (there are 6 variations).

PM: Science of the Sucker Punch

Based on the strategy, system and video created by Coach Blauer in the late 80's, we are bringing O.G. concepts and tactics back.

You'll learn how to mask movement, including empty hand and improvised weapons. You'll also learn how to read and anticipate attacks.


AM: The Official KNOW FEAR Seminar

Exclusive presentation by Coach Blauer. 

Attendees will taught a simple system to identify and confront fear before it consumes the mind, why doubt & hesitation can create emotional inertia, and how to identify and confront this.

We will discuss the Neural Circuitry of Fear, the difference between Capacity vs Potential, and the four steps to managing fear and how to make it work for you.

You will learn why the biology of fear isn't a true indication of preparedness, how the mind navigates the body, and how to change your mind to move your body.

PM: The Categories

Coach Blauer created the Four Categories to help people understand how an unconscious bias can put us in more danger when we need to move to safety. 

What is your category? How does it redirect your focus or derail from optimizing the safest choice possible during a violent encounter?

If your personal safety and that of loved ones is important, understanding the "categories" is crucial. 


How to stabilize your opponent at extreme close quarters and negate bites, headbutts, and punches. This is a transition position when you're forced to clinch.


Imagine a drill that improves target acquisition, non-telegraphic motion, accuracy, timing, speed and agility. Coach Blauer created the RR back in the 80's to help students develop spontaneity and explosiveness. The drill morphed and has become one of our hidden gems. #OG


Coach Blauer will break down the Three Ds and run you through the actual steps for his verbal defuse strategies.

This is one of the least understood aspects of most self-defense programs and a must for any law abiding citizen to know.

*No formal lunch breaks - bring snacks and food. We will take several small breaks for grazing and hydration. This format is most effective for flow and retention. It's also better for your metabolism and allows us to end 90 minutes earlier than in the past. This allows you to enjoy Vegas Saturday night and makes it easier to travel on Sunday if you're trying to get home.

The training Camp will be two days of presentations and physical skills and drills that are functional for all skills and fitness levels. Everyone can do it and everyone should. Regardless of your experience you can attend. During practical drills, groups will be created based on experience & occupation (General public/beginners, police/military, Martial artists & MMA, etc,)

YOUR HOST: Coach Tony Blauer is one of the only Combatives experts who has successfully affected training across all the combat related communities: self-defense, combat sports and the military & law enforcement sector. His research on physiology, mind-set as it relates to confrontation management has influenced over two decades of reality-based martial artists. Coach Blauer will be joined by his top coaches and special guests.
