Tony Blauer SPEAR PDR Self Defense

Het S.P.E.A.R. systeem is in de politie, justitie en militaire wereld geen onbekende. Wereldwijd worden professionals getraind in dit systeem dat qua realiteit en onderbouwing geen gelijke kent.

Ook in Nederland zijn er diverse S.P.E.A.R. trainers die lesgeven in dit systeem. Er zijn echter weinig trainers daadwerkelijk gecertifieerd door Blauer Tactical (VS) en aangesloten bij de organisatie van Tony Blauer. is gecertificeerd om zowel het S.P.E.A.R. systeem voor politie/justitie/leger alsmede het Personal Defense Readiness programma voor de consument les te geven.

Hieronder volgt een stukje tekst van de website van Blauer Tactical.

The SPEAR system (Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response) is a close quarter protection system which uses a persons reflex action in threatening situations as a basis for defence.

The primary founder, Tony Blauer, developed the SPEAR system in Canada during the 1980s. It has since been adopted by several military and law enforcement agencies across the world.

The SPEAR system is not a sport, its only use is as a tool for self-defence, therefore there are no rankings or competitions of any kind. The style adopts the natural reflex of a person when faced with a threatening situation, which is dubbed the startle-flinch response.

The SPEAR System was developed by Tony Blauer in the 1980s and was born from his "Panic Attack" and "Sucker Punch Drill" subject of study that relates to the emotional and physiological aspects of sudden and unexpected violence.

The "Panic Attack" study developed into the "Be Your Own Bodyguard" program and the present day SPEAR and Personal Defense Readiness ("PDR") programs. Tony Blauer is also the creator of the High Gear Suit.

The SPEAR system has been recommended by many units and police officers and organisations worldwide. The SPEAR system is also open to civilians via the Personal Defence Readiness Program.
