So much of fighting is about tradition… This is how we’ve always done it, so this is how it’s going to be. That’s fine when you’re on the training mat – but what happens when someone grabs you at the ATM at two in the morning? Fear kicks in fast, and all that training… Poof! That is, unless you’ve trained with Tony Blauer. He’s developed a self-defense system that uses your natural instincts and fear response and harnesses it to keep you safe. We talk about learning to embrace fear, questioning the way things have always been done, and trusting your instincts and intuition.
