Marek Polák has spent more than 25 years studying and learning various martial arts and self defense systems. He has conducted many self defense workshops for civilians and self defence professionals.

In 2014 he became a certified fundamental instructor of Personal Defense Readiness by Blauer Tactical Systems (U.S.A.) operating in Kosice, Slovak Republic, Eastern Europe.

Personal Defense Readiness™ (P.D.R.™) is based on more than 30 years of scientific development by Tony Blauer and  his company Blauer Tactical Systems™ (BTS). P.D.R.™ is a course of reality based self defense, utilizing the natural startle/flinch in reaction to the incoming danger with fundamentals of the S.P.E.A.R. system™, which makes this common reflex mechanism a tool for tactical counter attack.

P.D.R.™ not only works with a unique and patented learning models, but also draws from the longstanding research of BTS in managing and overcoming fear.

The educational scheme of the P.D.R. ™ is based in a 3-Dimensional theory, which cultivates its students on an emotional, psychological and physical level.

S.P.E.A.R. system ™

It is the first genetically and behaviorally inspired system of self defense that utilizes the body’s natural reactions in situations, when it is necessary to face the fear and violence – what means that not only can everyone learn it, but also that everyone can use it.

S.P.E.A.R. system ™ is so versatile and efficient; it is a part of the learning curriculum of major law enforcement and military training units around the world.

The S.P.E.A.R. system ™ does not interrupt or collide, in any way, with your current training. It is a “bridge” for utilizing all your complex motor skills which you already may have from your chosen defensive tactic or martial art system.
