Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response

who is this for?

"Your ability to protect yourself or a loved one is inarguably the single most important skill you can possess."
-Coach Tony Blauer

What if learning how to protect yourself was much easier than you thought? That was the inspiration Coach Blauer had over thirty years ago. He noticed that no one really used technical martial arts in real confrontations.

what is the spear system?

“The SPEAR System is based on an 80,000-year-old genetic survival response that helped keep our ancestors alive. The reptilian brain wants you to survive. Its initial response is to protect the head and move you away from danger. We have sharpened this movement. Be the tip of the spear. Because in your fight, you’re point.”
— Coach Tony Blauer

Devon Edwards:

I was once a small boy who changed schools frequently around Phoenix, Az. The new kid always seems to get picked on.


Despite my activity in sports and karate, I was continually beat up by bigger kids and even adults. I felt as though I had a target on my back. I had not given myself permission to be assertive.

In high school I started wrestling and boxing which did great things for my confidence but I knew there still was a vital piece missing from my ability to actually defend myself in a violent encounter. This became apparent in 1998 when my father and I were robbed at gunpoint. We both got home safely, but I got a lesson in fear and survivability first-hand.

When I first saw Tony Blauer's ATM video in 2009 I realized THIS WAS THE MISSING LINK. I was hooked. At this point I was training and competing in Mixed Martial Arts in Okinawa, Japan but could not attend a live course. In 2012 I finally made it to my first PDR Instructor Course in Dachau, Germany. This is when I began the Incirlik Air Base self defense program in Adana, Turkey. Since moving to California I have created imPULSE PDR and I am providing training to the Northern California Community. I hope to continue training and coaching the SPEAR System™ as long as I live.

The ATM Video:

If you knew you had to fight to the death tomorrow, would it change the way you trained today?
