Valor Universal Weapons Academy, founded in July 2020, aims to provide the study of a universal Martial Arts Weapons System.
The System incorporates a mixture of Japanese and Filipino weaponry. These include: - Tonfa, Kobutan, Jo staff (4ft), Tanto, Kali sticks, Rope, Karambit and other adaptable weaponry.
Tuition is provided from the age of 4 years onwards, for most abilities.
There are various Syllabuses within the Valor universal weapons academy System, which aid to develop Martial Arts skills for ages 4 years+: -
Mini Samurai/Raions (Ages 4 years-6 years)
Junior Samurai/Raions (Ages 7 years-15 years)
Adult (Ages 16 years+)
Adaptive - inclusive for impaired mobility (All age groups)
The Mini Samurai/Raions and Junior Samurai/Raions may overlap, depending on the individual’s understanding and ability. The Sensei (Club Coach) will assess each student on their merits, before deciding whether commencement of the Junior Samurai/Raions Syllabus (from 7 years), is appropriate.
All beginner students wear a White belt and thereafter grade in the coloured belts as per the Belt Table.
The Mini Samurai/Raions Belt System varies slightly, as their belts are all White with a coloured stripe.
Breaking down the moves for the younger ages, permits the students to develop at their own pace, without being initially overwhelmed by techniques.
Grading exams are held every 4 months. However, not every student will attend, depending on the time they have trained and the progress of the individual.
