Dynamic 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 teachings secret.
Master Tenio passed down the true teachings to Master Richard Van Donk who is now revealing the art of DeCuerdas Eskrima in a step by step, level by level teaching format that is done both in a direct how-to instruction and also shown in a dojo setting. These teachings are now available as an Eskrima Home Study Course which encompasses Levels 1-4 of the 7 levels of our art.

Very hard work and an in-depth study of the material in this distant learning course will take you to Level 4 BlackBelt (this test will be in person). Normally in the past until about 1984 the FMA (Filipino Martial Arts Association) did not give belt style rankings as they do in other Asian martial arts and only titles given by your master signified your ability to others in the family. GrandMaster Tenio broke that tradition when he gave Richard Van Donk his black belt in 1984. So Richard has decided to continue what his teacher did with him and use a belt system of ranking.

But this Dynamic DeCuerdas Course does something more than give you a grade. It gets you centered in your body. It gets you grounded. It teaches you to be patient. It teaches you to quickly counter. It teaches you speed of attack and defense. It teaches you how to be more efficient – that less is more. It teaches you confidence beyond a punching, kicking or grappling style – Why? Because when you can get comfortable with flying stick and knife attacks coming at you from all angles then a punch seems like nothing. It teaches you self worth and to have less fear. Knowing that I can defend myself and family is priceless.

You can earn your Black Belt too with this step-by-step training course. Ranks are realistic and are very hard earned. They are not guaranteed. We are about learning the art and not about grades even though we award them and congratulate those that earn them.

NOW IT IS ALL ONLINE IN A STUDY PORTAL!!! View the training on your Computer, or use the phone tablet APP. Study Anywhere at Anytime!! PLUS you get the Physical 400+ page Binder mailed to you. Eskrima at your fingertips.

No matter what martial art you study, I don’t care what it is, Ninjutsu, Karate, Judo, Jujitsu, MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), Tae Kwon Do, etc., etc. If you do not learn how to handle or defend against sticks and knife attacks your training has some deep limitations. Knives and sticks are everywhere

And, If you do know how to handle and defend against sticks and knife attacks, you have an ace in the hole. And having an Ace in the hole is a great feeling, isn’t it?
