To tee up this conversation, I want you to think about fear, or more specifically “fearlessness”. I’m going to posit that this is a concept that makes little to no sense, at least when presented as a positive trait. It isn’t wise to be around anyone who purports to be “fearless”. Fear is a natural human emotion. Courage and bravery are impossible without it, and great risk management needs to acknowledge and understand it.

With that, meet Coach Tony Blauer, this episode’s guest. Coach Blauer has been in the martial arts, self-defence, defence tactics industry for over four decades. He trains people in self-defence, working with both individuals and governments. His research into physiology and mindset as it relates to violence and confrontation management has influenced over three decades of reality-based martial arts.

However, I didn’t bring Coach Blauer on to discuss combat tactics. I brought him on the show because in creating and refining his self-defense system, he developed a deep understanding of fear based on psychology, physiology, and neuroscience.

We talk about that because there is a huge cross-over with just about everything else when it comes to fear. From a risk and uncertainty perspective, we can learn a lot from Coach Blauer. So today, it’s about “know fear”, not “no fear’.
