How many countries have a Modern Arnis presence?
Let's see...the U.S. and Canada, Germany, and the Philippines, of course! Those are the big ones.
The WMAA has groups in Sweden and Denmark. Is there still a WMAA presence in Japan (John Lehmann's group)? I believe there is someone in Spain, but I can't recall where I heard this. Mr. Delaney lists a school in England, and the IMAF-Schea group lists a school in Hong Kong.
Actually IMAF -Schea also has a presence in Germany with Gabbi and there is the DAV Germany with Dieter. These are two seperate organizations in Germany but both with Modern Arnis.
