Coach Blauer on the Art of Charm

“If it came down to it, could you defend yourself or a loved one in a street fight?”

Check out this interview with Coach Blauer from the Art of Charm podcast, where he discusses self-defense, martial arts, how much training is enough (and what kind really matters), and other important topics.

Cycle of Behavior on Its Tactical

Coach Blauer recently shared an overview of one of the most popular tools in our Performance Enhancement Psychology toolbox with Its Tactical.

The Cycle of Behavior Learning Tool describes processes that the body/mind undergoes creating a deeper understanding of how you think, make decisions, absorb information and manipulate yourself towards a set goal. Its applications go far beyond combat or self-defense: students of the system have used the Cycle of Behavior for everything from business negotiations to athletic competitions.

Check out the article here.
