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.
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.
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 Pahuyuthyellow 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.
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.
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.
Pahuyuth has a uniform teaching concept and qualification system. As a probationary student (yellow belt) you first learn the basics of Pahuyuth.
The corona pandemic has shown how important digitalization and digital learning are in education. As martial arts education providers, we see it as our duty to move with the times and to combine the previous classroom teaching at school with modern e-learning.
For this reason, we now offer hybrid martial arts training as well as digital study opportunities for all our students.
Better training through digital learning platforms
In order to provide you with an even better education in the future, we have decided to outsource part of our lessons (the transfer of knowledge) to our digital learning platforms.
In our new members area you will find exclusive videos, tutorials, graphics, texts, archive recordings and other learning aids that you can access as part of your study package at any time and from anywhere in the world. Did you miss a lesson? No problem! Thanks to our online platforms, you can easily catch up on individual lessons!
Via our in-house online forum, you can also get in touch with other members and teachers outside school opening hours. In this way, you can ask questions at any time and get valuable feedback whenever you want.
Your advantage: From now on, you are no longer dependent on fixed training times and can thus make your live training in the Pahuyuth school even more efficient, effective and flexible.
