How violence and self defense affects men, and how violence, personal safety, and how we deal with fear shape our identity.
Since the 1980s Tony Blauer has been teaching self defense with a focus on fear management and behaviorally sound self defense tactics. He has conducted extensive research on physiology and mind-set as it relates to confrontation management and is the only martial artist to ever be featured in Forbes Magazine. Blauer has taught his method to the Navy Seals, Federal Air Marshal Service, counter terrorist groups, special forces units, and numerous SWAT teams and police departments around the world. In 2006 he partnered with Crossfit and coach Glassman to design a modified version of his self defense courses aimed at empowering civilians called the Crossfit Defense Course.
