Tony Blauer Joins Panteao Instructors

Columbia, SC, August 11, 2016 – Panteao Productions is happy to announce an addition to the Panteao instructor lineup. Panteao will be introducing new videos with instructor Tony Blauer, founder and CEO of Blauer Tactical Systems.

Tony has pioneered research and training methodologies that have influenced and inspired martial art & combative systems around the world. His company, BLAUER TACTICAL SYSTEMS (BTS) is one of the world’s leading consulting firms specializing in research & development of combative training & equipment for the military, law enforcement and self-defense communities. BTS has taught key performance enhancement, fear management, and combatives based on S.P.E.A.R. System research to military, law enforcement and civilian personnel since 1988.

With over 30 years professional consulting experience, BLAUER TACTICAL SYSTEMS is highly sought out by progressive trainers interested in advanced scenario work, close quarter tactics, mind-set and confrontation management psychology. The Blauer team has had the privilege and honor of consulting for elite elements within the federal government like U.S. ARMY Special Forces & SPECIAL OPERATIONS, U.S. AIR FORCE, U.S. NAVY SEALs, FEDERAL AIR MARSHAL SERVICE, the U.S. COAST GUARD, DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY, SECRET SERVICE, FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT TRAINING CENTER, U.S. MARSHALS.

“I was very happy to be introduced to Tony by one of our other instructors, Pat McNamara. Mac told me Tony would be a bad ass addition to our instructor cadre. That got my attention. After speaking with Tony, I agreed,” said Fernando Coelho, President of Panteao Productions.

“When I saw my good friend Mad Mac’s videos online I was really impressed with the production and started looking at the Panteao website. Panteao has so many great instructors and training tracks, I’m excited to be part of their effort to help make you safer,” said Tony Blauer.

Tony added, “In a real close quarter confrontation, you need to weather the ambush first, the SPEAR System breaks down the physiology, physics and psychology of the extreme close quarter confrontation. Because our system is based entirely on organic human movement, anyone can learn it and get safe within hours, and SPEAR, seamlessly transitions to any counter you’re skilled at from firearm, edged weapon or empty hands.”

The first title with Panteao from Tony is currently in pre-production and is scheduled to be filmed in October. For more info on Tony and his company, Blauer Tactical Systems, you can visit his website at: http://blauerspear.com/

New Instructor at Panteao

Panteao Productions is happy to announce an addition to the Panteao instructor lineup. Panteao will be introducing new videos with instructor Robert Keller starting with “Make Ready with Robert Keller: Proven Methods of the Carbine”.

Robert has spent more than 19 years with the United States Army in the Special Operations community. Robert has conducted combat operations in numerous theatres of operation, including Iraq, Afghanistan, and other undisclosed countries. Starting his career with the Army Rangers and later joining the Special Forces, Robert is currently serving in a SMU where he has been for the last 10 years. Robert is also the Founder and CEO of Gamut Resolutions LLC where he is quickly becoming highly sought after for law enforcement training, corporate outings, and civilian classes where he specializes in Carbine and Pistol courses.

“It’s great to be adding Robert to our cadre of instructors. He bases his training on his experiences in combat and not on unproven theory, something that is becoming more and more prevalent in the training community,” said Fernando Coelho, President of Panteao Production.

The first title from Robert is currently in pre-production and is scheduled to be filmed in September. For more info on Robert and his company Gamut Resolutions, you can visit his website at: http://gamutresolutions.com/

Pat Rogers – RIP

Pat Rogers was a dear friend to Panteao Productions and one of our favorite instructors to work with. Our time together was spent laughing and joking and trying to get serious for the next scene we were filming. But when it came time be serious and teach, Pat was a true professional. Long before Panteao came into existence he was a personal friend who had my back and when times were tough, he was there to keep me moving forward. Running the business and both our busy schedules made it harder to see Pat on a regular basis, but I knew he was always just a phone call away. I will miss his humor. I will miss his words of wisdom. Most of all I will miss his friendship. Pat – you bust your ass to the very end. Please rest now and take it easy. We will all be thinking of you and will never forget you. – Fernando Coelho

Pat Rogers

Panteao Teams Up With Renaissance Steel Research

RSR Logo sm

Panteao is happy to announce RSR Steel Targets coming on board as the official steel target sponsor for Panteao Productions. Renaissance Steel Research (RSR) was founded by Daniel Domin and Philip Weathers and is based out of Wilmington, NC. Danny has participated in reconnaissance, surveillance, and high threat protection operations in the Middle East as a Recon Marine and in Private Security. He has experience in protective security details, mobile and static security, close quarters battle, special reconnaissance and firearms instruction.

Renaissance Steel Research operates a 33,000 sq.ft. state of the art CNC machining, welding and fabrication facility in North Carolina and is a contract manufacturer specializing in all forms of CNC machine, metal fabrication, engineering, design and production. Renaissance Steel Research is a multi-faceted steel fabrication, welding, and engineering business.

“Existing Panteao instructors already run RSR steel targets in their classes and gave RSR the thumbs up,” said Fernando Coelho, president of Panteao Productions. Fernando added, “Danny gets it. Most people can’t justify purchasing steel targets for their personal use because of their high price. His targets are affordable yet still made from high quality AR500 rifle-rated steel. Besides, Danny is a pleasure to work with and his facility is near our facility. This was a no brainer.”

“We are extremely honored and look forward to working with Panteao!” said Daniel Domin, founder of RSR Steel Targets.

RSR brand steel targets and target stands will be appearing both in Panteao’s instructional videos as well as used by Panteao’s instructors at the Panteao facility for classes.

New Gunsite Training Videos Coming from Panteao

Panteao is happy to announce the addition of Gunsite Academy to the cadre of instructors available from Panteao’s Make Ready with the Experts training series.

Gunsite and Panteao press release image

Gunsite Academy is considered to be America’s premier firearms training center and was founded in 1976 by Lt. Col. Jeff Cooper. Located just west of Paulden, Arizona at a facility covering 2,800 acres, Gunsite offers a wide range of firearm training to elite military personnel, law enforcement officers and free citizens of the US.

“We are very pleased to be able to team up with Gunsite and create a one-on-one training experience with Gunsite instructors via Panteao’s online streaming videos and DVDs. Attending a class at Gunsite is something every firearm owner in the US should do at least once in their lifetime”, said Fernando Coelho, president of Panteao Productions. Fernando continued, “With our training videos, we will be able to supplement that hands on training for those that have already been to Gunsite, prepare those that are getting ready to take a class, and give some level of training for those that haven’t attended.”

Ken Campbell, Gunsite’s Chief Operating Officer commented: “It is an exciting venture to work with Panteao to make Gunsite available to more good people. People recognize the world may not be the nice place it once was and are seeking good training. This is an opportunity to make a solid introduction to The Modern Technique and start them down the training path or refresh them. We look forward to this on-going joint venture.”

The initial video titles being produced at Gunsite Academy are Make Ready with Gunsite: 250 Pistol, Make Ready with Gunsite: 223 Carbine, and Make Ready with Gunsite: Citizen Response to Active Shooter. There will also be a special documentary coming out later this year about the 40th Anniversary of Gunsite.

Make Ready with the Experts: Training Online

Panteao Productions is happy to announce the launch of the much anticipated Panteao Make Ready Channel on Apple TV. With Apple TV, Panteao now has the Trifecta of streaming platforms, bringing the Panteao videos directly to subscribers’ televisions on Apple TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire TV.

When Panteao first launched streaming content from the Panteao website in May 2011, the only option was to watch the Panteao videos directly from the Panteao website on a desktop or laptop computer. Technology has grown in leaps and bounds in the past five years and Panteao has continued to expand the platforms that subscribers can benefit from. First there were the Apple and Android mobile apps. They give subscribers the opportunity to watch our content on their phones and tablets anywhere they want. The launch of our Roku Channel in August 2015 bridged the gap between computers and mobile devices, introducing televisions. With the addition of Amazon Fire TV and now Apple TV, subscribers have many ways to enjoy our content.

Panteao offers a monthly subscription as well as a 3-month, 6-month, and a yearly subscription. Subscribers have access to over 30 instructors and all the video content Panteao offers as often as you want, whenever you want. More videos are added on a regular basis, expanding the amount of content subscribers have access to. Yearly subscribers (domestic customers only) also receive a free one year membership to the National Rifle Association and a choice of one of their magazines.

While training online does not replace actual trigger time on the range, it is an excellent supplement to a class. Instructional videos can prepare you for what an instructor is going to present as well as serve as a refresher of what you learned when it’s months later.

The unfortunate reality of training is the majority of firearms owners do not seek it out. Whether it’s because of a lack of ranges nearby, the cost of attending a class, or the inability to take time away from work or family. Some may even feel they simply don’t need it. Whatever the reason (or excuse) it doesn’t change the fact that firearm handling skills do not come by simply purchasing the firearm and reading about an instructor and his/her drills in your favorite gun magazine. If you are lucky enough to take a class, will you be able to afford another? What about that carbine class you want to take but the trip to Disney with the wife and kids is coming up? Or the braces little Johnnie needs? Every firearm owner should be seeking out formal training with a qualified instructor on the range, but most never will.

Then there is the seemingly endless flood of supposed firearms experts releasing videos on social media sites like YouTube and Facebook. Many are a walking liability waiting for an accident to happen. It’s hard to filter the nonsense from the true firearms instructors on the net. The vetting process doesn’t exist. Anyone with a video camera and a social media account can portray themselves as a firearms expert. With Panteao, you are presented with top instructors who have been vetted. Their backgrounds are legitimate and they are considered to be among the best in their circles.

With Panteao’s Make Ready with the Experts Series you have no excuse. Start learning proper firearms safety and gun handling skills from the best. Then go to the range for some trigger time. No excuses.
