Confrontation management with Tony Blauer


Friends, I would like this column to be as interactive as possible, please email me with request, questions, concerns ( and I will work them into articles or in some case pure Q &A.

As a consultant, I’m on the road 250 days a year and I predominantly work with trainers, sharing behaviorally based research on topics as diverse as fear management, cultivating ‘Presence’, Tactical De-Escalation, counter-ambush principle and of course our S.P.E.A.R. System, for more on my system, please visit my website at


Tony's company, Blauer Tactical Confrontation Management System, regularly trains DT instructors in his SPEAR SYSTEM and Officer Survival School. Aside from his responsibilities to LEO's the world over, his company has consulted for elite elements within the federal government like U.S. Navy SEALs, U.S. Army Special Forces, U.S. Air Force, Federal Air Marshals, the U.S. Coast Guard, D.O.E., U.S. Marshals, and the FBI. He has also consulted for specialty organizations like the ASLET, ITOA, TTPOA, NIPAS, the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders Task Force and the National Security Committee, and many more.
