About Self Defense

Contrary to common belief, learning self defense isn’t just about learning a martial art but survival skills against violent threats. Cadre Academy is the only place in Singapore that teaches authentic self defense for the ordinary men based on S.P.E.A.R™ system.

S.P.E.A.R™ is a science based self-defense system, focusing on how to Detect, De-fuse  and Defend against violent encounters. It also integrates a DNA level survival response with modern principles of physiology, physics and psychology in threatening situations. Founded in Canada during the 1980s by Tony Blauer, it has since been adopted by  several military and law enforcement agencies across the world.

Classes are non size, gender or age specific. You will learn how to effectively defend yourself by harnessing physical force through intuitive bio-mechanical techniques. But more importantly, you will also experience why the emotional and psychological toolbox is actually your greatest asset for self defense. You may read more about Blauer's S.P.E.A.R here.
