The eight candidates were vetted by black belts Master Ermar Alexander, Master Kevin Angeles and brown belts Diana Fauner and Ismael Fraser.

The candidates were tested from their Yellow belt skills, to Green belt. This consisted of 5 levels in total. They were tested on single stick, double stick, knife, espada y daga and mano-mano (empty hands), as well as Sayaw (forms). And finally, they were also tested with their historical and academic knowledge on Eskrima and Doce Pares.
