Join Coach Tony Blauer for uncommon sense talks, rants and interviews that reframe how we can look at life, challenges, personal safety, training, confrontations and personal development all by embracing a counter-intuitive relationship with fear.
Jorge Carvajal: Coaching Yourself Through A Home Invasion
Before this podcast, I had never met Jorge.
If I told you the details you'd assume I was lying...but it's all true.
Jorge used my system to protect himself and his family during an attempted home invasion.
The suspect was armed, Jorge was not armed.
As the gunman pointed his pistol at Jorge, he thought "this is it, this is where I get shot", then he remembered my video on active shooters using improvised weapons and triggering their startle flinch!
Marcus Aurelius Anderson
I've known Marcus for several years now. During that time we've had some amazing talks and share similar philosophies about life.
Since his life's work, mission and vision are helping people understand the 'gift of adversity,' I thought it would be fitting to share with you given the year we've all just experienced.
PS I recorded this back in 2019 and thought I had released it! (Better late than never!)
Alexander Augustine aka Wurzelroot
I discovered Alex on Instagram one day and was immediately blown away by his courage. He is smart, witty, outspoken, and has huge balls given we are deep into the cancel culture era.
I'm not gonna spend a lot of time trying to convince you why I think you should [must] listen to this interview and then follow him online... if you know something is wrong with the world right now, give this a shot and if it resonates, share it.
Marcus Torgerson: Krav Maga Expert
With over four decades of martial arts experience, including three decades instructing self-defense and personal fitness and two decades working nightclub security, Marcus has become a respected expert in responding to and de-escalating violent situations.
Marcus Davis - The Irish Hand Grenade
I met Marcus Davis decades ago at a UFC event in Las Vegas - little did I know that he had been following me in my system for many years before that we met.
After he retired from fighting, he began including elements of my philosophy and my research around the startle-flinch response, aka, the SPEAR SYSTEM to those he trained in self-defense.
Marcus was a pro boxer, a veteran of the UFC, and fought in many other organizations. Fans of fighting, martial arts, and self-defense will enjoy this!
JD Malone - Coaching WIth the KNOW FEAR System
This was one of my most fun episodes ever - JD contacted me as a coach looking for a missing link to help his athletes. After some discussion, he invested in the KNOW FEAR program, booked a single 'one-on-one with me to make sure he understood it. Then studied it, and applied it to his team. He sent me this email shortly afterward:
" Coach Blauer: Last night for the first time ever the high school that I coach at beat a team that they have never beaten in the 20 years of sports at our school."
Advice from podcast: Have good experiences working out vs. just getting through it because when this is over ‘I’m gonna feel so good.’
For me: So I’m not just going through the motions to check a task off the to-do list. It’s, ‘if I’m gonna do it, then will embrace the experiences during the process.” So, will pay more attention to how I’m placing focus. Focus more on exactly what I’m doing versus what I just need to get done. Asking ‘why’ I’m doing whatever it is I’m doing may help.
Glad to hear you back thank you
