Arnis single stick

Rated 4.97/5 based on 963 customer reviews

The term Modern Arnis was also used by Remy Presas’ younger brother Ernesto Presas to describe his style of Filipino martial arts; since 1999 Ernesto Presas has called his system Kombatan.It is derived principally from the traditional Presas family style of the Bolo (machete) and the stick-dueling art of Balintawak, with influences from other Filipino and Japanese martial arts.Remy Presas’ modernization of the training method was intended to help preserve the Filipino martial arts.He taught the method of hitting cane-on-cane during practice, which attracted more newcomers to the art and also allowed the art to be taught in the Philippines’ school system.This is the second in a series of Arnis workshops, and will focus on the use of a single stick.There is no training fee for current members of Southside Dojo; however, sticks will need to be purchased.He was assisted by individuals such as those who now are on the Modern Arnis Senior Masters Council: Rodel Dagooc, Jerry dela Cruz, Roland Dantes, Vincente Sanchez, Rene Tongson and Cristino Vasquez.He continued to develop and spread his art, including via books, until political considerations forced him to relocate to the North America.

His goal was to create an injury-free training method as well as an effective self-defense system in order to preserve the older Arnis systems.Training covers empty-hand self-defense (striking, locking, throwing, etc.) as well as the trademark single and double stick techniques of the Filipino martial arts.Other aspects of the art include espada y daga (sword and dagger fighting), sinawali (double stick weaving patterns), and tapi-tapi (locking drills with the stick).Practitioners are called arnisadors or Modern Arnis players.In addition to its Filipino influences, elements of Judo, Shotokan Karate, and Wally Jay’s Small Circle Jujutsu appear in the system.
