Coach Blauer will be teaching at our school in Herkimer, NY on October 7th and 8th. For some of you regional folks this is an opportunity to get some hours in with the source. I have trained with Coach Blauer for hundreds of hours and always learn, clarify or cement something at a session. A couple of coaches are even flying in to see our schools operation and network. All are welcome. We are hosting our Black Belt Spectacular graduation show the day before on October 6th. If you can come in on Friday please joins us there. Shoot me an email if you are interested and I will send you the information. We are limiting numbers so register A-SAP. Tom Arcuri tom@pdrteam.com

Just returned from Coach Blauer's PDR session in Herkimer, NY. Another great event that reinforced (and further developed) what I have already learned in the SPEAR system. As others have pointed out before, having the opportunity to train in person with Tony always cements and enhances your knowledge of the system. We covered many drills and concpets including ECT, the mirror drill, the close-quarter form (with extreme attention to detail!), malfunction drills and much more. There are many aspects of the system that I am still working through; one that I have always found most useful (and which was emphasized all weekend) is ECT. Being able to apply the ECT model to virtually ANY attack (be it a haymaker, tackle, rear bear-hug, rear-strangle, knife attack, etc..) shows the amazing diversity and capacity of the system. Watching Coach Blauer break down the "micro" moments in a true close-quarter confrontion, allows one to see the benefit of training under the "startle - flinch" conversion, rather than using a 1-2-3 "technique" approach. And finally, thanks to Tom and Dana for hosting the event and providing a great atmosphere for learning. Their skill level (and that of the attendees) is evidence of how committed they are to bringing the SPEAR system to their students. Looking forward to a future session... Paul Rossi

Hi Everyone, The October 7th and 8th training seminar with Coach was a great experience for all in attendance. The in-depth training we have been doing in Herkimer NY, really paid off as Coach Blauer peeled the onion for us and really added to the substance of our training. Even after over 4 years and hundreds of hours of training the depth of his knowledge never seems to amaze me. One of the highlights was his dissection of rear strangulation with a rope. He demoed with a 15-year-old female student of ours and in matter of 10 minutes, after explaining how the S.P.E.A.R. system applied and plugging it into familiar fundamental drills, she was three dimensionally defeating realistic attacks. We are grateful that he could make the time to train with us in Herkimer again this year. The last big PDR training event is the November 9th ? 12th Instructor Certification course in Montreal. Both Dana and I are looking forward to it.

...hopefully soon. The last PDR was held the first week of May, if it was one week later I would have attended (my semester ends in mid May). Late May (or early June) would be perfect! If not, I will try to get off from work to attend. Paul
