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: - Nunchaku, 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 (Ages 4 years-6 years)
Junior Samurai (Ages 7 years-15 years)
Adult (Ages 16 years+)
Adaptive - inclusive for impaired mobility (All age groups)
The Mini Samurai and Junior Samurai 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 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 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.
