Grades 1 and 2
The first 2 grades of the Beginner Youth Escrima Syllabus are split into two rotations. Students for both grades train the material together, but will be expected to perform it at a grade appropriate level for grading. There is also a grade specific double stick pattern that they learn for each grade.

Rotation 1: Inside Defences (Single Stick and Unarmed)
Rotation 2: Outside Defences (Single Stick and Unarmed)

Grade 3
This grade introduces some simple disarms, as well as low blocks, and the final double stick drill.

Grade 4
This grade is in two parts, and although they can both be trained during a single term, it usually takes 2 terms to pass both parts.
Part 1: Sparring Drills
Part 2: Form and Applications
