Scholar Victoria's Meyer Specific Syllabus
This is the grading syllabus for our classes on Meyer.
This syllabus is purely motivated by a need to ensure a consistent level of knowledge of the system. The system itself doesn't demonstrate fighting ability, and is not a mark of superiority in the class. It exists to recognise the hard work people put in to learning the background and techniques of their style.
Specific techniques for each level can be found here:
