    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.

    These are all true gents and masters of modern arnis. Majority of them probably do not get the promotion that they truly deserve.

    I apologise I am unsure what year the photo was taken. It is just one that Master Rodel sent. In a guess i would say not that long prior to 2005...judging by master rodels hair.

    Thankyou soo much for GM Vics website I can now link it to Master Rodels.

    No worries Rebecca. I agree that the photo is probably from sometime around 2000-05 based on GM Vics and Roland's appearance

    With all the politics in the art nowadays it's heartening to see these individuals still standing together.

    Yes and the work that they have done for the Philippine Council and the World Kali Sports competitions is in my opinion phenomenal. They have so far organised two fantastic world championship events in Manila despite GM Rolands ill health! Truly inspirational people!
