Triune Total Body Defense

Who We Are

Triune Defense is a self-defense company whose passion is to make good people safer and to help them succeed in life. We teach scenario based self-defense that utilizes what the body wants to do prior to any training and reactivates your body's survival system to survive real world violent encounters. We are Cincinnati's first and only coaches certified to teach the SPEAR System™ by Blauer Tactical Systems,

We are not a martial arts studio. We do not train people for combat sports. It will not take years or decades to master what we teach.

We teach more than just "fighting skills". We incorporate physics, physiology and psychology to make you safer today, not months or years from now. We train people to react before the attack so that they can avoid danger when possible, to de-fuse to de-escalate when confronted and to defend themselves  when faced with the imminent threat of violence and then get to safety. This system has been taught to police and military personnel worldwide and is now being brought to the rest of the world population.

What we teach in the Cycle of Behavior™ and fear management is vital to not only defending yourself but also applies to every area of life because we all experience fear. It's what we do with fear that determines our outcomes. It will help you survive the ambush but will also spill over into other areas of your life as well.

We have a physical location where we hold classes but we are also mobile. If you can't come to us or don't see a class that fits your schedule, contact us and we can bring the training to you and your group or we will work with you to schedule something that does.

We can personalize our workshops to the individual needs of your group. We can hold classes for specific age groups, professions, etc. (women only, nurses or medical personnel, college students, teachers, real estate agents, trauma victims, children). Each group has challenges/scenarios unique to them. Looking for a great team building activity? We can provide that for you.

We offer fitness training to complement what you learn in our workshops and enhance your ability to fight if necessary and just live a healthier life. We offer ongoing training for those who want to go deeper in their knowledge of the system or improve their ability. We are working on developing Active Shooter/Killer workshops. We are beginning to offer classes that combine firearms and hands on self-defense. Advanced students can learn weapons defense.

About the S.P.E.A.R. System

“The SPEAR System is based on an 80,000-year-old genetic survival response that helped keep our ancestors alive. The reptilian brain wants you to survive. Its initial response is to protect the head and move you away from danger. We have sharpened this movement. Be the tip of the spear. Because in your fight, you’re on point.”— Coach Tony Blauer

The ability to protect yourself or a loved one is the single greatest skill you could possess. What if learning how to protect yourself was much easier than you thought? That was the inspiration Coach Blauer had over thirty years ago. He noticed that no one really used technical martial arts in real confrontations.

 When you train with us you will learn :

  • how to reconnect with your intuition and instincts
  • how to recognize a fear spike and how to listen to it its signals and most importantly, how to manage fear
  • simple, functional movements, based on how real people move

Training in the SPEAR System will teach anyone:

  • How to reconnect to the human weapon system.
  • That 80% of confrontations could have been avoided.
  • The Three D’s: How to to detect danger, how to defuse and de-escalate and, if push comes to shove, to defend.
  • A simple and practical system that’s congruent with your emotional psychological state during a confrontation.

The SPEAR system can be used by anyone looking for a simple and effective system of self protection.

The Blauer SPEAR System’s approach to self defense will reawaken your situational awareness and teach you a patented approach to identifying and managing fear; the program includes an effective verbal de-escalation system and the most raw and direct approach to personal defense using natural bio-mechanics.

Learn more on the SPEAR System :

Blauer Tactical Systems® research on the startle/flinch phenomena and its link to the survival system’s withdrawal reflex has spawned one of the most important evolutions in close quarter training: the SPEAR System™, which utilizes the speed and reliability of the startle/flinch mechanism to convert the sudden attack into a tactical counter.

The SPEAR SYSTEM™ is considered the world’s first and only behaviorally-based close self-defense system. It is based on science, psychology and human bio-mechanics. It uses hard-wired reflexes to enhance personal defense by improving anyone’s ability to detect, intercept, and defend a sudden close quarter ambush.

The SPEAR System is not a martial art nor does it replace other martial art systems. SPEAR is the study of human movement as it relates to violence, fear and aggression.
