OFFICIAL PDR TEAM 6-8 HOUR BASIC COURSE TEMPLATE This template is designed for an intro level exposure to PDR. While it is designed for 6-8 hours, the depth of information covered will ultimately determine it's length. It could easily be expanded for a longer course. A 6-8 hour course should cover only the subject matter necessary for the end user to leave empowered, and with a basic understanding and successful experience of the fundamental drills. Save the more in depth substance matter discussions for intermediate/advanced students and/or longer courses. For slides with video, you will have to insert them into the slides yourself (the video has to be on the computer you are using to show the PPT). If you are not up to the task or are not using a computer, burn the videos/photos to a DVD and show them to the class in that manner. There are optional slides (indicated by yellow titles) that should only be covered if time permits. There are instructor notes on most slides that you can print out and review. It is not necessary to cover all of the notes in you presentations, however the critical fundamental notes should always be covered. In depth notes on the drills are in the "Drill Description Manual". Continued next slide
SAFETY WARNING READ BEFORE YOU START THIS COURSE OR USE THIS MANUAL The techniques, tools, tactics and concepts described in our courses, videos, manuals and audio's are to be used for legitimate purposes only, in appropriate combat, law enforcement or self-defense situations. Do not depend on any video, audio or manual for your safety. Your safety depends upon you and your ability to avoid, defuse and/or control confrontations. Your safety depends on your judgment during all confrontations. If you are a beginner, seek the guidance of an experienced trainer. If you are a trainer make sure you and your students fully understand the legal and moral implications of practicing and using self-defense, protective or combative tactics in your country, state, province, city and so on. This material is presented for educational purposes ONLY. VOLENTI NON FIT INJURIA. When you agree to learn, study or practice any marital art, combative or defensive tactics system you are “consenting to participate”. When you train in any martial art system, combative or defensive tactics system, there is an ‘assumption of risk’, especially those systems geared towards realistic street protection. Practice, train and use this information at your OWN RISK. Practice safely. Seek competent instruction. Seek competent counsel on use of force matters for your safety based on your lifestyle and or occupation. If you misinterpret a concept expressed in our seminars, manuals, videos or audios you could be seriously injured or killed as a result of the misunderstanding. Therefore the information contained in our courses, videos, manual and audios should be used as a supplement to competent personal instruction, diligent practice, personal evaluation and then balanced with the moral & legal application of any protective tactic.
PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT PSYCHOLOGY Capacity vs. Potential ‘Desirable and Less Desirable’
Everything I needed to know about self-defense I learned from Jim Carrey….
SPORT VS. STREET SPORT VS. STREET Are your classroom tactics readily transferable to the arena you are most likely going to fight in?
97 / 3 RULE This rule states that 97% of the public can be dealt with through avoidance and de-escalation tactics. The other 3% are our most dangerous opponents; those that are willing to harm and/or kill to achieve their goals.
PHYSIOLOGY FIRST THE SCIENTIFIC REASON WHY THE S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ IS DIFFERENT. It’s “Behaviorally Inspired & Genetically Wired™”
ALL DRILLS, PRINCIPLES, CONCEPTS ARE UNDERPINNED BY SCIENTIFIC & MEDICAL PRINCIPLES: PHYSICS KINESIOLOGY PSYCHOLOGY Anatomy Neuroscience Physiology Tactical Mind-set & Combat Psychology
S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ S = Spontaneous P = Protection E = Enabling A = Accelerated R = Response
HISTORY, DEVELOPMENT AND EVOLUTION OF THE S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ THE “SUCKER PUNCH DRILL” -1987
“ In a real fight, where do you get hit first? ”
THE 3-DIMENSIONAL INTEGRITY OF THE S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ S.P.E.A.R. as an Icon – Emotional S.P.E.A.R. as an acronym – Psychological S.P.E.A.R. as a tool – Bio-Mechanics System vs. Tactic
THE THREE FIGHTS PRINCIPLE Fight 1 - You vs. You Fight 2 - You vs. Bad Guy Fight 3 - You vs. Legal System *Do these fights only happen sequentially? Or do they affect each other?
THE UNIVERSAL FLINCH THEORY
EXTREME FLINCH RESPONSE
A FLINCH CONVERTED
1. Why do we flinch? 2. Survival Instincts and the Flinch 3. Do all people flinch the same? 4. Our Reactive Brain (Survival System) Vs. Cognitive Brain (Muscle Memory Issues THE UNIVERSAL FLINCH THEORY
S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ THESIS 1. What does the body/mind system want to do prior to any training? 2. Does this response have a combative application? 3. If so, why aren’t we integrating it?”
AWARENESS IS AFFECTED BY SUDDENNESS, AGGRESSION & PROXIMITY FUNCTIONAL AWARENESS = SCENARIO SPECIFIC + ATTACK SPECIFIC + CONSENT x2 SUDDENNESS = SURPRISE/AMBUSH FACTOR AGGRESSION = TELEGRAPHED RAGE PROXIMITY = HOW CLOSE YOU ARE TO THE ATTACK Awareness is empowered by consent & skill Opponent's ambush influences officer’s cognitive vs. reactive choices.

WHO CONTROLS THE FIGHT?
1ST DRILL SESSION
FAITH IN PHYSIOLOGY PHYSICALLY DEMONSTRATED The Startle-Flinch Response Naturally Aligns One Of Your Body’s Strongest Weapons With Your Attacker. ID the Sweet Spot
ROLE-PLAYING PRINCIPLES for ISOLATION DRILLS BE A GOOD BAD GUY BE A GOOD GOOD GUY Replication Theory Remember to have ‘Faith in Physiology’ Communicate Everyone is a Safety Observer
S.P.E.A.R. AS A TACTIC: THE TECHNICAL/TACTICAL POSITION Outside 90 Drill Splayed Fingers Drill
CLOSE QUARTER COMBAT STANCE Strategic & Tactical Advantages Of CQCS: Reflexive Since It Mirrors the 'Flinch From a Distance' Empty Hand Domination Seduces Haymaker or Tackle (Two Pia's) Locks and Loads HALF S.P.E.A.R. & FULL S.P.E.A.R. + Other Close Quarter Tools Keeps CLOSE QUARTER TOOLS Engaged (S.P.E.A.R., Palms, Elbows)
ENCROACHMENT DRILL A Timing Drill Designed To Sharpen The Relationship Between Pushing Away Danger And The CQCS
3 STEP BEAR HUG DRILL Designed To Experience The Off-Balance to On-Balance Principle and The Primal, Protective, and Tactical Stages In Progressive Steps. 3 STEP TACKLE DRILL Designed To Experience The Off-Balance to On-Balance Principle and The Primal, Protective, and Tactical Stages In Progressive Steps But From A Different Angle Of Attack- The Waist Tackle. STRENGTHENING THE S.P.E.A.R.
DUCK UNDER LINEAR Designed To Experience The Off-Balance to On-Balance Principle and The Primal, Protective, and Tactical Stages In A Fluid Motion And Stopping The Tackle In A Linear Motion. DUCK UNDER LATERAL Designed To Experience The Off-Balance to On-Balance Principle and The Primal, Protective, and Tactical Stages In A Fluid Motion While Stopping an Attacker From Getting Behind You, and Changing Direction of His Attack. STRENGTHENING THE S.P.E.A.R.
SLAPPING S.P.E.A.R. This Drill Is Designed To Practice Defending Against The Leg Tackle. Remember That Leg Tackles Do Not Occur In a “Vacuum” The Drill Is An Isolation Of The Attack On The Leg Within A Scenario.
Closest Weapon Closest Target – CWCT It is a 3 dimensional performance enhancement tool EMOTIONAL - Mobilizer - it can facilitates motion during times of duress PSYCHOLOGICAL - Neuromuscular Mobilizer - it can decrease gap times and reaction time during altercations PHYSICAL - Skill Set Trigger - improves off-balance action, deploys learned & improvised skills sooner Tools Target and Tactics - The 3 T’s Closest Weapon Closest Target – Drill CLOSE QUARTER TOOL DEVELOPMENT

2 ND DRILL SESSION
MURPHY MOMENTS: THE THREE DANGER ZONES 2 Classic Jams: Hyper-flexion Clinch Armed Passed
MALFUNCTION DRILL #1 Hyper-Flexion This Immediate Action is Designed to Create Space When The Opponent’s Suddenness, His Strength, or Position Pin Your Arm Tightly Against Your Body, Preventing Appropriate Muscle Recruitment.
MALFUNCTION DRILL #2 Clinch This Immediate Action is Designed to Create Space When The Opponent’s Suddenness, His Strength, or Position Do Not Allow Your Arm To Get Outside 90 Degrees.
MALFUNCTION DRILL #3 Arm Passed This Immediate Action is Designed to Return To A POD, After The Opponent Has Passed Your Arm And Grabbed You Around The Waist During A Tackle. It Also Helps Prevent Being Thrown To The Ground.
MIRROR DRILL This Drill Is Designed To Experience Primal And Protective Responses When The Opponent Attacks With An Explosive Haymaker. This Is Safely Simulated By Using A Violent Headlock In Training.
SHARPENING THE S.P.E.A.R Arms & Hands: Sweet Spot, the Ideal Point of Impact Outside 90 Degree Rule Splay Fingers Head Position: “Rule of Thumb" Torso & Hips Position: Faces threat, Axis forward Legs & Feet: Sprinters stance, Pressure On The Balls Of The Feet,
DRY- FIRING DRILLS Effortless Power Vs. Powerful Effort. Cross Check Theory: Entire arm makes contact. Safety and Ideal Point of Contact/Point of Impact Drills 1. On Contact Dry Fire 2. Two Inch Dry Fire 3. Ambidextrous Dry Fire

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF INTIMIDATION “When you’re visualizing what your opponent can do to you… instead of what you can do to your opponent!” “When you’re visualizing what your opponent can do to you… instead of what you can do to your opponent!” - Tony Blauer “Your opponent is already dangerous – don’t make them more dangerous by imbuing them with skills that they haven’t yet proven.” -Tony Blauer
THE POWER OF INDIGNATION “There are more people who have successfully defended themselves through sheer will & indignation, with absolutely no training what-so- ever, than there are trained people who have been attacked and successfully defended themselves.” -Tony Blauer
BE YOUR OWN BODYGUARD™ “What do you see yourself doing to protect someone else that you do not see yourself doing to protect yourself?”… BYOB -Tony Blauer
F.E.A.R. MANAGEMENT SKILLS Respect the Mind Body Relationship “What goes on around us has little to do with what goes on inside of us.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson Emotional / Psychological Relationship “ If you face just one opponent and doubt yourself, you are out numbered.” – Dan Millman Biological Fear vs. Psychological Fear F.E.A.R.
Generic PD: “When faced with the threat of an attack I will do what I can to avoid the confrontation with as little violence as possible occurring to both myself and my attacker(s).” THE PERSONAL DIRECTIVE A directive is like your personal mission statement. It’s a mental trigger to help you shift from a reactive mind-set to a tactical one. If it is realistic and supported by realistic training, it will kick in when you need it. It is supported by the Three P's
3 GOLDEN RULES Accept what is happening. Get Challenged. Keep Thinking.
