Most instructors mastered the art of striking & grappling but don’t have a consistent curriculum for a safe practical weapons training. To be a complete martial artist you need to master 3 fundamental martial arts skills: Striking, Grappling & Weapons Training. In this training seminar I will provide you with all the necessary skills to start your own practical padded weapons program. Weapons training adds excitement to your existing classes & help improves retention. In this training seminar you will learn literally hundreds of practical padded weapons drills, combinations & variations that will give you years of teaching material. Some of these drills are the same drills that I teach law enforcement & military based on the Doce Pares Eskrima System, the oldest Eskrima organization in the Philippines established in 1932. You will definitely love how easy it is to teach our weapons curriculum. You will be able to use it as a stand alone program or a supplement to your BBC or Advance programs.

Master Sonny Mayo is an integral part of our weapons curriculum. Our 1st stick class created so much excitement, we grossed over $6000 in Black Belt Club enrollment in just 2 short months since we added the Doce Pares Program.

One hour class with Master Sonny gave me months of teaching material, it keeps my classes fresh & new.

– Master Michael lee, 6th Dan TKD Masters Martial Arts, LI NY

“Master Sonny Mayo’s Instructor training camp is one of the best weapons training camps I have ever attended. It combined Instructors who could communicate the material with passionate ease and curriculum that surpassed my expectations. With the knowledge and skills I learned from Master Mayo, I have made my school, instructors, and eventually, my students, on another level concerning weapons training and skill in the use of escrima. Master Sonny Mayo has also stayed informative even beyond the standard class, showing a professionalism and passion for his art that is only found in some of the greatest martial artists in the world. I intend to continue my education through Master Mayo and spread the Doce Pares training to better the students under me. It has been a privilege to learn from Master Mayo and I relish the opportunity to train with him again.”

Master Keith Bennett, 6th Dan – Tang Soo Do Doce Pares New York definitely offers the best Filipino Martial Arts experience around. I attended the one day Doce Pares Instructor Development Course. Sonny Mayo Sensei is an absolute gentleman, and was respectful of the fact that everyone that attended the seminar is from different martial arts disciplines. The material was presented in a clear, organized and systematic manner, which allowed for easy learning. Mayo Sensei is very approachable and had an open mind during instruction which reflected among the good character of his staff at the academy. I believe anyone that is serious about martial arts needs to learn this style.
