As you progress into Blue Belt training, we will focus on how to control a confrontation and gain a dominate position.  This will begin with learning the ground escapes, and progress into controlling the clinch with Takedowns.  The final phase of the training will include self defense techniques.

As you progress from the rank of White Belt, each belt will be studied in three phases.  Each phase represents a time marker to completing your rank time requirements.  Once you have completed all three phases, and you complete all time requirements, you will then be recommended for Belt testing.  If you test, and fail to pass, you are not allowed to test again for three months of the failed test date.  If you fail a second time you are not allowed to test again for six months of the second failed test date.

You will be presented a testing sheet to complete the requirements for the Belt.  This needs to be given to your instructor on the day of testing.  Your instructor will grade each technique on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being perfect.  You will be asked to demonstrate each move on both sides when possible.  If you score less than a 3 on any move you fail the test!  Once you have successfully passed your test and earned your belt, please confirm with your instructor that all the correct paperwork is sent into the Eclectics Pankration main office.
