“Sayoc is a living art, it is constantly evolving.”
Tuhon Tom Kier
There are 3 Phases to the Sayoc Fighting System (SFS)
Understanding the structure of Sayoc Kali
The History of the Sayoc family
Where the material originated and how it developed. At what stages did the material develop
Understanding Sayoc Terminology
Understanding the Philosophy of Sayoc Kali
The Feeder Mindset
Recognize, Analyze, Synthesize
Evolution of a Sayoc student will be: Student, Teacher, Observer
Within Phase 1 it is vital that the Sayoc student learn and follow many of the skill development areas to ensure the future quality of the art. One of the most important are the Sayoc Teaching methodologies.
Sayoc teaching methodologies are based on the 4 responses of the feeder. They are:
Reactive – This is when the body reacts to some type of trauma
Reflexive – This is the brains response to a stimulus
Conditional – The bodies response because of training
Correct – This is a synthesis of the best responses that have been trained into reflexive responses. These responses come from the training/teaching methodology
Phase 1 level training is to take place at a 1-for-1 pace. For each movement by the receiver there is a correct feeder response to defeat it. Training speeds should vary from super slow (Tai Chi) to teaching speed (each movement performed only as fast as you can teach it) to demo speed (where a nice flow is established) to full speed (performed under control).
The teaching methodologies are as follows:
Accessing the subconscious – ALL training needs to absorb into the subconscious
Inducing stress and fatigue = The Alpha Wave state
Memory reversal = backwards motions like a film going backwards
Isolation of the Right and Left sides of the brain
Sensory deprivation drills
Triangle teaching = learning through doing
Correct response training
Feeder controls flow in free flow
The order in which Phase 1 drills and techniques are taught:
The first method taught to children. Why? They are not yet capable of closing on an opponent.
Helps with the proper body mechanics of throwing
Close quarter blade work
Taught with full and ½ beats, non-linear strikes
Vary training speeds
Intensity of the feeder
Transition of the receiver to the feeder
Groups against Groups
The layout of the Sayoc Fighting Systems is a mirror image of an individual conflict covering all ranges.November 5, 2015 at 6:05 am #5880Anonymous
This puts a lot of our training into perspective. Thanks Guro Matt for writing this article.
