Arnis (Special Project)
by: Myles T.

The History & Development
Facilities and Equipment
Rules and Game Official 's Function

• Studied the Japanese systems of Shotokan Karate and Judo, achieving high rank in each and also other Filipino systems, most notably Venancio Bacon's Balintawak.
• Started in a small gymnasium in Bacolod in the 1950s, spread the art to the local youth as both a cultural legacy and a form of physical development or sport.
• Taught the art at the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos.
• Because of his love for Arnis, he was able to improve the game.
• Formed the Modern Arnis Federation of the Philippines.
• 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, via books, until political considerations forced him to relocate to North America.
Remy Presas
• He met Wally Jay, George Dillman, and other artists who influenced his development of Modern Arnis.
• Purpose if for self defense.
• Training with him personally is different than training with others.
• The International Modern Arnis Federation Philippines came to be the lead Modern Arnis organization in the Philippines.
• The Deutschen Arnis Verband of Germany would be the lead organization in Europe.
• In the United States, the International Modern Arnis Federation (IMAF) was the principal organization.
• Titles are "Punong Guro" as Head Teacher that recognized teaching and/or technical ability. Another is "Datu" as Chieftain or Leader
• The Masters of Tapi-Tapi titles were created to provide leadership and steerage for the IMAF following Remy Presas' passing
• The Datus were expected to take leadership roles that might see them move in different, and perhaps less conventional, directions.
• In 2001, the art remained largely united under the founder.
In many ways, the situation is analogous to what occurred in the Jeet Kune Do and American Kenpo communities following the deaths of their popular and charismatic founders. In particular, the question of how high-ranking arnisadors should test for higher rank has been settled by different organizations in different ways. In some cases this has caused controversy. However, the fact remains that several groups are promoting what they see as 'traditional' Modern Arnis, while others are promoting variations of Modern Arnis, in keeping with its "modern" approach. The art is healthy and continues to attract students.
