The P.D.R. System
Personal Defense Readiness

What is the Personal Defense Readiness System

Detect, Defuse, Defend. These are the fundementals of the PDR System.


The core of our method is based on the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEMÖ which is the first genetically & behaviorally inspired self-defense course of it's kind. It is the only self-defense method that fully integrates the body's reflexive responses and instinctive survival mechanisms making the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEMÖ the easiest, most natural way to protect yourself. Our program also includes unique and patented learning models but most importantly, we have pioneered research on how to manage and overcome fear.

Strategically & tactically speaking, our courses are based on how real confrontations actually occur! We have been leading the scenario approach to training for over 20 years. Our curriculum is based on a '3-Dimensional' theory that creates confidence on emotional, psychological and physical levels.

We only teach realistic self-defense skills that are street applicable. Students are exposed to aggressive as well as defensive role playing to simulate encounters and to prepare them to react ethically as well as decisively to real-life aggression. Our curriculum covers verbal defusing tactics, choice speech principles and a host of other behaviorally researched strategies.


Training in our system engenders personal evolution: Our breakthrough research on fear management is the foundation of our program and understanding and directing fear is the key to overcoming any obstacle in life. We've had many individuals participate in the program and experience transcendent applications in their businesses life and in intra-personal relationships.

Our system fosters respect for yourself and others by developing virtues like self discipline, humility, assertiveness and character. Since our program is so focused around the managing of one's fears, it directly works the 'esteem' and 'ego' centers of anyone sincerely working the system, ultimately this process helps lead one to greater self- knowledge and personal evolution.

Committed training also provides an excellent method to acquire overall physical fitness, improved strength, cardiovascular conditioning, weight management and coordination.
