Modern Arnis is a very
practical form of Filipino Martial Art developed by the
late Grandmaster Remy A.
Presas. The art is excellent for those interested in
real life self-defense, and is both easy to learn and
fun to practice. Modern Arnis utilizes single and
double 28" rattan canes, a main component of the
art is the translation of these weapon techniques to
the open hand. Modern Arnis blends the best elements
of Filipino Jujitsu, Karate and stick & knife fighting
into a brilliantly conceived, versatile and effective
martial art. Students learn a fascinating variety of
stick, knife, empty hand, and grappling techniques such
as: blocks and disarm counters and reversals, sweeps
and throws, ground control techniques, joint locks, flow
drills, sinawalis, and cane sparring. Techniques are
taught with single person twirling, two person drills
and sparring, and kata application.
We welcome martial artists
of all styles and skill levels as well as the student
with no experience. Modern Arnis stands alone as a complete
martial art system, yet its techniques work to enhance
the effectiveness of any art.
