This grading syllabus covers levels 1-5 in 4D Combat. The concepts and techniques are derived from both Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Kali. Two of the most amazing martial arts. Most of the core concepts of 4D are covered in these beginning levels so it's important to get them down. It's all about first things first and keeping it simple. Then later success is guaranteed. Take your time, and concentrate on good balance, great body mechanics, and an attacking focus. Good luck.
My name is Bob Breen, and I’m honoured to be considered the Godfather of JKD and Kali in Europe. My journey in martial arts spans over 50 years, and just about every discipline you can think of. These are the areas that I'm best known for:

- Full instructor under Dan Inosanto
- Founder member of WEKAF (World Eskrima, Kali, Arnis Federation)

Throughout that journey, I've always looked to perfect my skills and find the most effective way of fighting. Consequently, I’ve always been at the cutting edge of martial arts development in the UK.
