Attacks using fist blows, headbutts, open hand attacks, kicks etc. as well as neutralization and blocking techniques are taught. Weapons including slingshots, spears and bow and arrow are also incorporated. The fifth level teaches philosophy, cosmology and spiritual aspect of rituals from the Andes (Rodríguez Flores and Bushman Vega 2007: 23-24).
