Move Around Pressure In All Directions

The 5th Student Grade (abbreviated to 5SG) is the second of three grades which together make up the Basic Stage of the FWTS Training Programme.

The purpose of the 5SG programme is to raise your awareness of the space around you. You’ll learn to cope with threats entering from inside, outside, under and over your position, and understand more about closer-range strikes which curve to target. Tricky!

You’ll also discover more ways to handle pressure, learning to move around and past an opponent to deliver counter-attacks from different angles, linking together everything you’ve done to date.

For many students, 5SG is where they really start getting to grips with constant movement to achieve their objective. The idea of forward-flowing energy starts to take shape, and it feels great.
