The Beginner Syllabus is the foundation of the Escrima Concepts system. It focusses on being able to defend against basic stick strikes using a stick and when being unarmed.
– Student Grades: 1-4
– T-shirt Colour: White
The current Term is: 4th September – 11th December
Grading will be: Monday 27th November – Monday 4th December
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)
This grade introduces some simple disarms, as well as low blocks, and the final double stick drill.
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
