Cacoy Doce Pares curriculum is made up of 3 major components, namely: Korto-kurbada Eskrima (Close range fighting using short and curving strikes), Eskrido (locks, take-downs and throws using the stick), and Pangamot (bare-hand defense methods). In the Federation Logo, these three components are represented in the form of a triangle, symbolizing that these components work as one, complementing each other, while the 3 circles symbolize infinity, which means that the Cacoy Doce Pares System is continually evolving. Committed to growth…..Committed to advancement…..Committed to betterment.
To ensure that each practitioner would gain full understanding of the curriculum, particularly, its techniques and principle, a new set of training programs was created by the members of the Instructional Staff of the International Eskrido Institute in Cebu City, Philippines.
These programs would not only teach Eskrima as a whole, but it would specifically illustrate the distinction between Eskrima, as an art, as a sport, and, as a form of self defense, as well.
The International Eskrido Institute is also the CDPWF Headquarters and is located right next to the residence of Supreme Grandmaster Cacoy Cañete.
Cacoy Doce Pares World Federation has over 40 Doce Pares Schools Worldwide classified into 4 levels.
