Modern Arnis is a practical form of Filipino Martial Art developed by the late Grandmaster Remy A. Presas. The art is excels in real life self-defense, and is both fun to practice and easy to learn (though, like all true martial arts, it takes years to master).
Modern Arnis blends the best elements of Filipino Jujitsu, Karate, and stick & knife fighting into a brilliantly conceived, versatile and effective martial art. Modern Arnis uses single and double 28″ rattan canes, and translates the techniques to the open hand. Students learn a fascinating variety of stick, knife, empty hand, and grappling techniques such as: blocks and disarm counters and reversals, sweeps and throws, ground control techniques, joint locks, flow drills, sinawalis, and cane sparring. Techniques are taught with single person twirling, two person drills and sparring, and kata application.
We welcome martial artists of all styles and skill levels as well as the student with no experience. Modern Arnis stands alone as a complete martial art system, yet its techniques work to enhance the effectiveness of any art.
Sifu Roy is authorized to teach Modern Arnis by the late Grand Master Remy A. Presas. Master Roy studied with Grand Master Remy Presas from 1986 to Presas’ death in 2001. He was promoted to 5th Degree Lakan (Black Belt) by Professor Presas in May of 1997. Master Roy directed the Annual East Coast 4-day Summer Training Conference from 1989 through 2001.
