    Good afternoon,

    I hope you all are well.

    I was wondering how the ranking systems and instructor certification process works in GM Diony's Doce Pares Multi-Style as well as GM Cacoy's Doce Pares Federation.

    What are the awarded ranks, the minimum time to achieve each rank, and what must be demonstrated for them?

    I've searched around for such rank requirements and haven't been able to find much.

    Similarly, what must an instructor candidate do to demonstrate teaching ability and obtain certification?

    Well I cant speak for the Cacoy Doce Pares System as I am not too well versed on this system, but the Doce Pares Original Multi Style System of GM Dionisio Canete is a 5 year training program, from beginer to 1 grade black belt.

    The Original Multi Style Curriculum covers aspects of the 12 original styles that made up the original Doce Pares Club, hence the name Original Multi Style System.

    There are 10 phases to the curriculum each addition adding new material that needs to be learned, also each section there is historical material that also needs to be learned as you are tested on this in each phase.

    So to get to 1st Grade Black in GM Dionisio's Original Multi Style System takes a minimum of 5 years if you pass each phase first time.

    Hope that helps in part anyway. I am sure one of GM Cacoy's guys will come along soon and explain how they do it.

    Best regards

    El Maldito...thanks for the info... I wonder if what rank will I be. Just ask my Lolo Cacoy, my Uncle Diony or my Dad Amor... I am not so aware about the ranking when I started...

    Last time when I practice Eskrima way back 1975, Lola Herminia (wife of Lolo Cacoy) gave me a Green belt but during out of the province exhibitions. we just wear T-shirt, jogging pants and rubber shoes only.
