The yellow belt course – Your entry into Pahuyuth

Whether you want to use the Pahuyuth knowledge to learn martial arts or effective self-defense. Whether you want to learn more about Asian culture and far eastern philosophy. Or whether 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 other martial arts and martial arts, Pahuyuth has a trial phase with an entrance exam, which determines whether someone is accepted as a full-fledged Pahuyuth student (green belt) and gains access to the knowledge of the Pahuyuth disciplines.

This means even if you have been doing martial arts, martial arts, boxing, Muay Thai (Thai boxing), Muay Boran, Lethwei, kickboxing, MMA, Krav Maga, Taekwondo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wing Tsun, Kung Fu, Sanda, Judo, Eskrima, Kali, FMA, staff fighting, or similar – if you don’t happen to have a Pahuyuth belt you should 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 trial student course

In former times, Pahuyuth students had to apply to a teacher, for example by working as temple novices (Dek Wat, church child). Initially, each of these students was only taken in as probationary student to first examine their character and ideas.

The ancient teachers them an insight into the fighting knowledge, but no concrete fighting techniques to prevent possible abuse by an unadmitted student. It was only at a later stage that the teacher decided whether and to what extent it was possible for him 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 probationary students (Lugsidt Todlong) still wear a golden-yellow belt today. Instead of cleaning in the temple, there is nowadays a structured beginner course (yellow belt course) in which the basics of the Pahuyuth are taught.

Every beginning is difficult – Pahuyuth requires initiative, self-discipline and willpower.

How does such a trial training work?

The Pahuyuth yellow belt course is divided into two parts, a workout and a technical part with a short break in between. The course is supervised by either a teacher, a teacher or instructor, or a qualified Pahuyuth student.

The respective instructor is there for all your training-specific questions and will take care of you throughout the course.

1. Fitness, health and endurance – the first hour

In the first part of the course 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 stages of learning.

At the same time, your body gets to know important movement sequences that help you learn Pahuyuth better and deal with your body more safely.

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

2. Time to relax – the break

After that, there is a 10-15 minute break during which you can rest, drink, eat, watch the advanced students train and/or ask questions.

Basically, all students and teachers present are at your disposal for technical 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 everyone else can learn.

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

3. Technical Knowledge – the second hour

In the second part of the course, technical knowledge is imparted. This may include combat techniques, defense knowledge and fall and rolling techniques.

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

4. The Warrior’s Creed – the end of the course

The yellow belt course always ends with the instructor reciting the Warrior’s Creed.

The Warrior’s Creed is a non-religious gesture with which we convey the ethical and philosophical ideals of Pahuyuth. First we teach first the character and only then the knowledge.

Equality and forgiveness – the Warrior’s Creed is an elementary part of our philosophy.

What happens next?

As a beginner (yellow belt) you first learn the basics of Pahuyuth. They consist of the 30 Exercises, PQS and a total of 45 techniques, which are divided into Physical Knowledge, Defense Knowledge and Safety Knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge.

Once you have mastered the basics (i.e. from reaching green belt maturity), you are free to choose your desired discipline(s) and/or combine several of them in order to develop a fighting style tailor-made for you.

You can choose from:

Self-defense, of course, is also taught. However, we do not understand this topic as an independent Pahuyuth discipline, but as interdisciplinary competence and valuable basic attitude, which we impart to all our students.
