SELF DEFENCE GRADING SYLLABUS
The New Zealand Self-Defence Syllabus is divided into two main parts: Concepts and Practical.
The concepts and photo illustrations can all be found in the Self-Defence ebook.
The practical syllabus is all shown in our full video and a perfect companion to the Self-Defence Syllabus book. The syllabus is divided into four levels:
• Yellow (8th & 7th gup) – defence against grabs to the wrists.
• Green (6th & 5th gup) – defence against grabs from the front.
• Blue (4th & 3rd gup) – defence against grabs from the rear.
• Red (2nd & 1st gup) – defence against common attacks.
The full video is an invaluable resource containing demonstrations of all the self-defence syllabus all the way to red belt level.
