Updated : 05-18-2004 What is Modern Arnis? Modern Arnis is a martial art with its roots in the systems of the Philippines. It was developed by the late Grandmaster Remy A. Presas, and in its simplest definition covers open hand, knife, and stick techniques. Where can I train? There are many schools around the world that offer training. You can easily find a school in your area by checking the websites of the various Modern Arnis organizations.
