Skills start at level one and max at level 3. Skills level up in Ys VIII just by activating them; they don't have to actually hit an enemy to gain EXP. Each activation gets a single EXP point, but this can be boosted using the Warrior Seal accessories. Warrior Seal I adds 1 EXP point so each activation gives 2 EXP total, Warrior Seal II adds 2 EXP points so each activation gives 3 EXP total, etc. etc.

By default, the game allows the characters you're not controlling to use any skill in their repertoire. You can change this setting, however, so that they only use the skills you assign to them. I strongly recommend switching this setting so that active party members don't waste SP on mastered skills.

I found that the quickest way to master skills was to put the highest level Warrior Seal you have on the character you're controlling and spam one single skill in every battle, only using normal attacks to regain SP. Once that skill is mastered, equip a different skill and repeat. When you run out of skills to master, switch characters. Rinse and repeat until all skills have been learned and mastered.

Learning new skills
Most skills are learned randomly by the active party during battles - reserve members will not learn new skills, so rotate your party to make sure everyone learns the skills they need. The only exceptions are two skills for each character, one of which will be learned from a manual and one by fighting Master Kong.

Master Kong's skills can be learned starting from Ricotta's quest "A Gift for Master" in chapter 4. Each time you meet him, give him a Ripe Mangoh to fight him one-on-one with a different party member each time. Defeat him with that party member to learn a new skill and send him on to the next area.

Depending on where you are in the game, Master Kong might refuse to fight until you've progressed further in the plot. If so, just keep going down the main plotline until he agrees to fight.
