Join us at Integrated Martial Arts for this three-hour workshop taught by Jake Steinmann, Personal Defense Readiness Coach. This workshop is open to everyone over the age of 13.

Students will learn realistic self-defense skills that are street applicable, based on how real confrontations actually occur! Understanding and managing fear is the key to overcoming any obstacle in life, not just in self-defense. In this workshop you’ll learn ways to better manage and overcome your fears.


The curriculum for this workshop is based on Tony Blauer’s PDR/SPEAR system, which uses a ‘3-Dimensional’ theory that creates confidence on emotional, psychological, and physical levels. We’ll approach self-defense as a holistic problem, which means we’ll look at awareness and avoidance strategies and verbal defusing skills, not just physical drills (though we train those too).

The Personal Defense Readiness program is widely acknowledged as being on the cutting edge of personal safety training. This workshop will flow from mindset, to contact, to confrontation, using the PDR’s unique Three D’s model: Detect, Defuse, Defend. Using Non-Violent Postures™ students will learn how to identify pre-contact cues, position for interception, and how to convert the startle-flinch to intercept the ambush.

The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ is the first genetically & behaviorally inspired self-defense method of it’s kind. It is the only self-defense method that fully integrates the body’s reflexive responses and instinctive survival mechanisms, making the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ the easiest, most natural way to protect yourself.
