Theres easily a few thousand different arts out there. Modern Arnis isn't a "main stream" art in the US or Canada, where TKD seems to be the star. So, why Modern Arnis? This is a good question for the seniors and long-timers here as well. What drew you into Arnis, and what made you stay? Personally, I've always liked the simplicity of the art in the beginner stages, evolving to a more complex and flowing rhythm as you gain progression. I'm not there yet, but, one of these days.
