Premium members will have their gradings done live via a web chat / video conferencing application. You can also grade in person once the travel bans due to COVID-19 have been lifted.

If you are a beginner, you will initially have access to the Yellow Belt curriculum which you have to learn, study and practise for a minimum of 3 months before you can go for your first grading. This is the first level in the Doce Pares curriculum.
Once you’ve passed your first test, you’ll be given access (free of extra charge) to the Orange Belt curriculum, and the whole process repeats for the next belt.
If you currently hold an existing valid Doce Pares certificate*, you can select the level that you’re next grading for. (For example, if you already are a Green Belt, you will purchase Blue Belt). You will also get access to all the belts below that level (eg. If you are currently Green Belt, you will be given access from Yellow Belt to Blue Belt curriculum).
If you don’t have an existing valid Doce Pares certificate, and want to access any other belts/levels other than Yellow Belt, you can purchase ANY level. But you will only get access to that particular level. If you would like to access another level, you will be charged extra for each of any succeeding purchases. For example, if you initially purchase Green Belt, you get charged for the Green Belt Basic Monthly Membership. Then you purchase Purple belt, you get charged separately for the Purple Belt Basic Monthly Membership.
Important Note: Cancellation lock rules apply per course/level (eg. cancel anytime or minimum 6 month contract, etc). Basic/Premium Monthly memberships require you initially to a minimum of 6 month membership and cannot be cancelled until after the 6 months is up.
* Certificate has to be from the Doce Pares Multi Style System by SGM Dionisio A. Cañete ODL, signed/awarded by a valid Doce Pares Multi Style Instructor.
Then simply fill in your personal and payment details, create an account and get full access to the Yellow Belt curriculum. You can then watch all videos for each topic.
You will not be charged until after the 7-day trial.
If you do not wish to continue with a paid subscription with Eskrima Master at the end of your trial period, you will need to cancel your subscription prior to the 7th day. We recommend cancelling at least 24 hours prior to the expiry of your trial to ensure a charge is not processed. (And we recommend cancelling at least 30 days prior to the expiry if you subscribed to a Yearly plan.) To cancel, please contact Master Alex.
A Basic Membership (Monthly Rolling, Monthly or Yearly Direct Debit) will give you access to all content within your level/grade. Gradings are done by uploading your video to your own host (eg. Vimeo) and sending the links via a ‘Video Grading Guide’ Word document which is supplied at the end of each level’s curriculum. This document is then sent to Master Alex via the online form provided for assessment.
A Premium Membership (Monthly or Yearly) will give you access to all content within your level/grade. You will also have personal contact with Master Alex via chat or video conference. Grading will be done via video conference or by person in London (once COVID-19 lockdown has been lifted).
