Cascadia self defense

With a background in several traditional martial arts and modern combatives and tactics, we teach Personal Defense Readiness (PDR), the civilian part of The SPEAR System, founded by Tony Blauer, and used by military and law enforcement.

SPEAR is not a style or a sport. SPEAR is "the study of human movement as it relates to violence, fear, and aggression".

SPEAR asks 3 simple questions:

1. What does the body/mind system want to do prior to any training?

2. Does this response have a combative application?

3. If so, why aren't we integrating it?

  • Learn to respond to aggression using your body's natural reaction to fear, and your body's natural weapons.
  • Learn to manage fear. 
  • Learn to be your own bodyguard


We are also a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer.
