    The World Modern Arnis Alliance (WMAA) Training Camp is the premier Modern Arnis camp in North America! Each year participants have the privilege to train with some of the world’s best martial artists. In addition to having the leading Modern Arnis instructors on staff, the WMAA brings in guest instructors from others systems to lend a different perspective to the training camp.

    This year’s camp will feature the teachings of Modern Arnis’ leading instructors: Grandmaster Rick Manglinong and GM - Datu Tim Hartman. They are two of the late Grandmaster Remy A. Presas’ most senior American students. In May 2007, at the IPMAF training camp in the Philippines, Great Grandmaster Ernesto Presas promoted Manglinong and Hartman to 9th degree black belts and Grand Master status in Kombatan.

    In addition, our 2008 WMAA Modern Arnis Camp guest instructors will be Sensei Gerry DiSanto and Grandmaster Nene Tortal.

    Sensei Gerry DiSanto is the owner and operator of Defensive Arts Training Centre in St. Catharines, Ontario. Sensei DiSanto has been training in martial arts for several decades. With skills in boxing, kickboxing, grappling and weaponry, he holds rank in several various martial arts. He is a certified teacher, allowing him the ability to meet each student’s individual needs.

    Grandmaster Jerson “Nene” Tortal, the nephew of the founder of the Pekiti-Tirsia Kali system, now calls his style Dekiti-Tirsia-Siradas. Just like the original style, it is a highly developed close-quarters in-fighting system, made up of complex sectoring tactics and combat elements with intimidating names like contradas, recontras, recontradas, etc.

    This year’s camp will have a special theme - to prepare for the Philippines! In 2009, Datu Hartman and Grandmaster Manglinong will be leading a tour of the Philippines. Participants will have the opportunity to tour parts of the P.I. and train with different Filipino masters including GM Ernesto Presas (the late GM Remy A. Presas’ younger brother) at his Kombatan camp. Our 2008 WMAA Modern Arnis camp will be a tune up for anyone planning to attend the Philippines, or even if you are not.

    This year’s camp events will include a cookout – pool party (weather permitting) at Datu Hartman’s home, as well as the East Coast Premier of Great Grand Master Ernesto Presas’ movie “Filipino Martial Arts”. GM Manglinong had a speaking part in this movie and Datu Hartman had a small walk-on roll.
