4TH GRADE BLACK BELT

We were lucky to have Guro Rob Bryant join us at CDP Melbourne at the beginning of 2014.  Guro Rob originally started his training in Cacoy Doce Pares under Master Teresa Cronin in the Sunshine Coast, QLD.  Guro Rob trained intensively with Master Teresa over a period of almost 6 years, gaining a deep appreciation of the foundational principles and fundamental aspects of Cacoy Doce Pares Eskrima, Eskrido and Pangamot.  In December 2012 Guro Rob successfully earned his Black Belt at East Coast Doce Pares Headquarters – headed by Grand Master Craig Bajraktarevic-Hayward.

Prior to his training in Cacoy Doce Pares, Guro Rob trained in other styles such as Karate, Aikido and Muay Thai.  He was dedicated to Chow Gar Tong Long (Chow family praying mantis) Kung Fu which he began in 2003 in Brisbane under 9th Degree Grandmaster Henry Sue (Chinese Kung Fu Academy).  In April 2004 Guro Rob relocated to the Sunshine Coast and continued Tong Long training under Sifu Steve Locke (a student of GM Henry Sue’s).  He also started training in Yang Tai Chi Chuan under Sifu Steve Locke.  In 2011 Guro Rob attained his 1st Grade Brown Belt in Tong Long (for those who may not know, this is a process which occurs over many years and after approximately 10 gradings).

In 2011 Guro Rob also became the main instructor in the Sunshine Coast for Cacoy Doce Pares, when Guro Teresa moved location.  He also began teaching CDP at two other martial arts schools as a guest instructor in 2012 and 2013.

After moving to Melbourne in 2014 Guro Rob commenced Judo training in addition to his continued dedication to Cacoy Doce Pares.  Guro Rob was promoted to 2nd Grade Black Belt in 2015, earning one of the last certificates signed personally by SGM Cacoy Canete.  Guro Rob has been an extremely valuable member of our team here at CDP Melbourne and integral to our club in helping to share the wonderful art handed down to us by Supreme Grand Master Cacoy Canete.
