Martial Arts Of The Philippines

Arnis is a combination of several armed and unarmed Martial Arts techniques. Unlike other arts that get tougher to do as you get older, Arnis can be taught at a very early age until the later years, even the late seventies. As long as you can move your hands and feet, you can learn the art and still defend yourself.

Arnis is the most effective method of weapon and weaponless self-defense or unarmed combat, utilizing both hands and feet. It is also a method of maintaining strict physical and mental discipline, coordination and a way of strengthening the mind and  body. It improves your power and speed by using your opponent’s flow of motion.

Modern Arnis incorporates empty hand translations based on the same path used in single stick solo baton and double sticks sinawali.

We try to learn Arnis as safely as possible by learning to respect the art,
your fellow students, instructors and opponents. We require necessary safety
devices such as mouth  guards, body guards and a cup supporter for males.
