Tactical Defense

5Exceptional(23 reviews)


Although martial arts are great for exercise and sport, they are not effective in real-world self defense because unless you’re an expert, when your adrenaline shoots up, you will lose your ability to use complex motor skills. My program is not a martial art and harnesses your pre-wired, instinctive reaction to a sudden violent attack. We weaponize movements your body will automatically use in an attack.

My goal is to make good people safer, one person at a time and feel that everyone should be able to defend themselves and their loved ones.

    Thanks for an amazing class, Coach Dan! You are an amazing teacher. The class far surpassed my expectations. I am so grateful that I dragged my teen girls to the class. They admitted afterward that they were really glad they went and learned a ton. We ALL benefitted so much--we gained skills, awareness, and confidence. All while having a BLAST! I really believe that if confronted I have solid skills at my disposal to protect myself and those I love.

    This is a great class for people of all levels. I learned that I already have the tools and skills with me every day to increase my survival odds and Dan showed me how to use them to get out of some not-so-friendly situations. The training is methodical at times and high-stress-save-your-ass at others. I would encourage anyone who asks to take this training.

    Dan has taught me so much in the 6 months we have been working together. He is a great teacher, incredibly knowledgeable, and has so much experience. We have worked on the SPEAR self-defense system, special situations, mental training and kick-boxing skills. The workouts are amazing, and I am so much more confident than when we started. You will not find a more knowledgeable and experienced coach who is as engaged and hands-on as Dan – he will help you accomplish your goals!

    Frequently asked questions

    The ability to protect yourself or a loved one is the single greatest skill you could possess. 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.

    Coach Blauer’s focus, mission and path has not wavered since he began teaching real-world self-defense in 1979. He has been on the cutting-edge of reality-based training for the self-defense world ever since. His goal has always been to make the world saf

    I've been studying martial arts since I was 8 years old in new Jersey. I've been trained in multiple techniques including taekwondo, judo, boxing and grav maga. I also am a certified instructor in coaching Blauer Tactical Systems Personal Defense Readiness methods. This approach is the most viable approach to street-level attacks and is not a martial art.

    I've worked with adults and children

    Make sure your coach is instructing using real world scenario training and not martial art techniques.
