Welcome to the culmination of a lifetime of passion and drive! Like many growing up, I followed a long path of martial arts and combat sports. But the many years of training did little to prepare me for the realities of real and sudden violence.
"If I was so good, why was I still afraid?"
As a first responder I've come to accept that danger, adrenaline dumps and fear are likely companions to my day. But how could I learn to understand these so I could perform to the best of my abilities, and how could I use this to help good people live life more 'fear-less-ly'? As the old saying goes, when the student is ready the teacher appears, and I was introduced to Tony Blauer's SPEAR System™ from an old Krav Maga instructor in 2008.
Finally the pieces started falling into place.
