The Yellow Belt Course – Your Entry into Pahuyuth

No matter if you want to use the Pahuyuth knowledge to learn martial arts or effective self-defense. Whether you want to learn about Asian culture and Far Eastern philosophy. Or if you just want to do something for your health and fitness – with us every new student starts in the so-called yellow belt course.

Unlike some other martial arts, Pahuyuth has a trial phase with a final entrance exam, which determines whether a student is accepted as a full Pahuyuth student (green belt) and gains access to the knowledge of the Pahuyuth disciplines.

This means that even if you have been doing Boxing, Muay Thai (Thai boxing), kickboxing, MMA, Krav Maga, Taekwondo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wing Tsun, Kung Fu, Sanda, Judo, Eskrima, Kali, FMA, etc. for many years – if you don’t have a Pahuyuth graduation, it’s best to start with the beginners. This is not a disgrace, but serves above all your safety and your learning success.

Step by step – Pahuyuth is learned from scratch.

The origins of the yellow belt course

In earlier times, Pahuyuth students had to apply to a teacher, for example as temple novices (Dek Wat, church child). In the beginning, each of these students was only accepted for a trial in order to test his character and his ideas.

The old teachers gave the insight into the fighting knowledge, but no concrete fighting techniques to prevent a possible abuse by a not accepted student. Only in a later phase did the teacher decide whether and to what extent it was possible for him or her to impart the requested knowledge to the novice and to accept him as a full-fledged student (green belt).

Following the Buddhist robes of the temple novices, Pahuyuth probatory students (Lugsidt Todlong) still wear a golden yellow belt today. Instead of cleaning work in the temple there is nowadays a structured beginner course (yellow belt course) in which the basics of Pahuyuth are taught to all those interested.

How does such a trial training work?

The Pahuyuth yellow belt course is divided into two parts, a fitness part and a technique part with a short break in between. The course is taught either by a teacher, a lecturer or a qualified Pahuyuth student under supervision.

The instructor is there for all your training specific questions and will guide you throughout the whole course.

Fitness, health and endurance – the first lesson

In the first lesson there is a guided warm up program with special exercises (bodyweight exercises).

These provide the necessary fitness, mobility and discipline that you will need in later levels.

At the same time your body gets to know important movement patterns which help you to learn Pahuyuth better and to handle your body safer.

Time to relax – the break

Then there is a 10-15 minute break where you can rest, have a drink, eat, watch the advanced students train and/or ask questions.

All students and teachers are available to answer your questions and will be happy to help you. We practice “learning through teaching”. This means that the more questions you ask, the more you and anyone else can learn.

Technical knowledge – the second lesson

The second lesson teaches basic technical knowledge. This includes fighting techniques, defence knowledge and fall and roll techniques.

There are regular excursions to the Pahuyuth disciplines, such as LING LOM, MEED (knife fighting), DAAB (sword fighting), GRABONG (staff fighting), SABAI (cloth fighting), MAI SAWK (shield fighting) or on the subject of Self-defense.

The warriors creed – the end of the beginners course

The yellow belt course always ends with the rendition of the warriors creed by the course instructor.

This creed is a non-religious gesture with which we convey the ethical and philosophical ideals of Pahuyuth. We always teach the human being first and then the knowledge.

You can find out more about the Warriors Creed here.

Before you learn to defeat an opponent, you must first learn to overcome yourself.

No question remains unanswered – Pahuyuth is a fighting knowledge and not a fighting belive.

Sound training – in the yellow belt course everyone learns the basics of Pahuyuth

Equality and forgiveness – the warriors creed is an elementary part of our philosophy.

Frequently asked questions

Who is the training suitable for?

The training is suitable for men and women aged 14 and over.

I’m a minor. Can I participate in the training?

For underage participants we ask that a special form be filled out and signed in advance and brought to the training.

Is there sparring in the beginner’s course?

No. Things like free sparring, partner training, sandbag training, etc. require some previous knowledge. You will get this knowledge in the yellow belt course.

I have previous knowledge - can I train / spar with the advanced?

Basically not, unless you happen to have previous knowledge of Pahuyuth.

The prerequisite to participate in the Pahuyuth disciplines is the Pahuyuth student status (green belt). You will only get this status if you pass the entrance exam. Admission to the entrance examination usually requires participation in the beginner course.

Deviating from this, we allow each new student (yellow belt) to take part in one free partner training session in the discipline(s) he or she is interested in. This takes place after consultation and after participation in the beginner course. Talk to your instructor about it, if you are interested.

I have an injury / chronic illness. What should I do?

Pahuyuth training is physically and psychologically demanding. We recommend to consult a doctor before starting any physical or sports activity. If you suffer from a permanent injury or chronic illness, please let the instructor know before you start your training.

What does it cost to participate in the Pahuyuth trial training?

Participation in the trial training is free of charge and non-binding until the third time.

How much does membership cost me?

In principle, everyone can take part in the trial training up to three times free of charge. Afterwards we ask for a declaration of membership to the Kampfkunstschule Neukölln e.V., to which we are a part of.

The monthly membership fee is currently EUR 60,- or EUR 40,- (reduced). In addition there is a one-time admission fee of EUR 30,-, as well as training clothes (EUR 60,-) and a yellow belt (EUR 20,-).

In terms of teaching materials you will need a Pahuyuth history book (EUR 48,-) and a LQMo test booklet (EUR 14,99). These can be purchased either online or on site.

As a member of the club you can take part in the supervised free training (Wednesday) in addition to the regular course dates (Monday and Friday) and thus get up to twelve training hours per week, if you wish.
