#277: Overcome Your Fear with Self-Defense Expert, Tony Blauer by Renegade Radio with Jay Ferruggia published on 2019-01-15T14:30:19Z Everyone feels fear. From the biggest, toughest, most jacked dudes on earth to small children and frail, elderly women, fear is an emotion all humans know well. If we all feel it, what separates those who take action and do what’s necessary in the face of fear from those who let it cripple them? The answer can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. Tony Blauer has dedicated his life to teaching people how to understand and manage their fear even, and especially, in the most stressful, dangerous and violent situations. He is the creator of the Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response (S.P.E.A.R.) self-defense system. Back on Renegade Radio for the 2nd time, in this episode Tony provides an in-depth explanation of the emotion known as fear and teaches you what happens physiologically when you experience it. Whether it’s so you can defend yourself if necessary, give an amazing presentation, perform well in a job interview or just have the confidence of knowing you’ll take action when faced with it, you must learn to conquer your fear. But before you can defeat it, you need to understand it. To learn how, listen as we discuss: Why Tony started doing Tai chi with Dr. Mark Cheng [12:23] Is his intensity sometimes misconstrued?

[1:20:10] His thoughts on man’s search for meaning and creating amazing relationships. [1:26:24] What got him reignited to start writing his book?
