Triune Total Body Defense

Making good people safer!

Who We Are

Triune Total Body 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

Blauer Tactical Systems® research of 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 S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ (Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response), which utilizes the speed and reliability of the startle/flinch mechanism to convert the sudden attack into a tactical counter. Most importantly, this system will not interfere with your current training and in fact it is most easily used as a bridge to any complex motor skill transition.

The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ is a ‘behaviorally’ researched, close quarter personal defense method that utilizes the body’s natural flinches and reactions to fear or violence and then converts these reactions into efficient tactical choices. Because the system is “Genetically wired and behaviorally inspired™”, anybody can learn it and everybody can do it.

It is the result of over two decades of scientific research. The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ is so direct and efficient, it is currently being adopted by major law enforcement and military training units across the globe.

"The ability to protect yourself or a loved one is inarguably, the single greatest skill you could possess." - Tony Blauer 
It might seem that this ability would take years to develop but the reality is that it is already hardwired into your DNA's survival system and just needs to be activated and trained. 
"Our approach to self defense is to reawaken your situational awareness and teach you a patented approach to identifying and managing fear, the program includes an effective verbal deescalation system and the most raw and direct approach to personal defense using natural bio-mechanics. You'll literally be safer in a day." - Tony Blauer
"I think our culture may produce a "victim" mentality in which we think we're helpless and just have to "take it". I think this class was excellent in helping me realize that I have the tools (and can develop them further) to defend myself. Great material, great presentation. - Sara, former student
