In this podcast I interview Tony Blauer, who is the creator of the SPEAR System of self defense. As part of his system Tony has done a lot of work in helping people to understand the psychology of fear and how it can be used to help them overcome it. Something that a lot of people don’t realize is that the same mental tools you need to survive a self defense situation are the same mental tools you need to improve on your bike and even to succeed in life. This makes knowing how to stop fear from holding you back a vital tool for your success. In this podcast interview we discuss why people who are “anti-violence” should still think about self defense, the Cycle of Behavior that fear causes and practical steps you can take to become better at managing the Fear Loop.
