DeCuerdas Eskrima Training Manual - Level Two Green Belt
by Eskrima GrandMaster Richard Van Donk
DeCuerdas Eskrima is one of the deadliest close-in blade fighting systems in the world. The true system was kept secret and handed down family to family.
The late Grandmaster Tenio openly taught a mixture of 19 Eskrima systems while keeping the core of the DeCuerdas teachings secret. Shortly before he died Tenio passed down the true DeCuerdas teachings to Master Van Donk, who is now revealing them in a step by step, level by level teaching format.
You can now learn at home the secrets to Filipino knife and stick fighting with Bushindo University's Dynamic DeCuerdas Eskrima Training created and taught by Master Richard Van Donk.
This Level Two - Green Belt manual is made as a reference guide to accompany your dojo training, Online DeCuerdas Study Portal or to support the individual dvds on the same title. We consider this manual a very necessary learning tool.
Students are loving it because it contains a brief history of the art, photos and bios of Grandmasters Tenio and Van Donk, Certification requirements, Step-by-Step descriptions and photo sequences of the techniques (so you can refer the manual while you are training), diagrams of the blocking and striking systems, instructor opportunities, how to test with us and much more.
