The University of Badassery Ep. 12: Tony Blauer
05.09.2020 - By The University of Badassery Podcast
Joining us in Episode 12 is a true “professor of badassery,” Tony Blauer, founder Blauer Tactical Systems which is considered one of the most respected self-defense training companies in the world. How respected is Tony? So much so that in the 90s, Pat Mac brought Tony out to work with the Tier 1 unit at Fort Bragg which created a longstanding relationship between Blauer and America’s most elite special forces unit. From Blauer’s website: “Coach Blauer has been in the martial art, self-defense, defensive tactics and combatives industry for almost four decades and is one of the only Combatives experts who has successfully affected training across all the combat related communities: self-defense, combat sports and the military & law enforcement sector. His research on physiology, mind-set as it relates to confrontation management has influenced over three decades of reality-based martial artists. Blauer Tactical Systems (BTS) specializes in the research and development of close quarter tactics & scenario-based training for law enforcement, military and professional self-defense.” What’s great about this episode is that Tony goes even deeper into the mind body connection and breaks down fear like no other. And since he and Mac share a 20+ year friendship, Tony had free reign to blow our minds!
