The Fundamentals of Personal Defense Readiness(PDR) is a course based on Tony Blauer’s famed S.P.E.A.R. System. It is not a martial art or a “style” of fighting. It is the science of human movement based on the body and mind’s reaction to fear, aggression, and violence. We like to say that it’s “genetically wired and behaviorally inspired”.

What this means is that you don’t have to study for months or years in a discipline that may or may not be effective in defending yourself in real life, non-sport situations. PDR teaches you how to survive the most dangerous part of any altercation, the “ambush”. The S.P.E.A.R. System is a bridge, it will enable you to overcome the initial attack, and then use YOUR combatives skill set(boxing, grappling, etc) and if you don’t have a skill set, well, you will at the end of the workshop!

An important note, there will only be light to moderate contact in a PDR Fundamentals workshop, never any sparring or injurious activity. Fear not, you will still be a ninja at the end of class. Well not quite YET, but you will have the skills needed to help protect yourself!
