BAKM – 8 Week Beginner Course Syllabus

The 8 week beginner course is run in such a way that students may join the course at any point, as each week the subject matter is different to the previous.

It is therefore a rolling syllabus so for example if you join in week 4, you would do the syllabus as weeks 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 1, 2 & finally week 3 and so on.

To progress well, we encourage students to attend as many classes as they can in their beginner training period to not only reinforce the techniques taught but to also embed the techniques through repetition thereby increasing the chance of the individual being able use these techniques more automatically under pressure.

After the course the beginner student is then eligible to join the regular group having passed their first grading assessment (yellow)
