Links Modern Arnis UK Arnis also known as Eskrima and Kali , is the national sport and traditional martial art of the Philippines that emphasizes weapon-based fighting with sticks, blades and various improvised weapons. In recent years, Filipino Martial Arts have become more widely known through its use in major Hollywood films like The Bourne Identity, and the Bond films. Although, as in most Filipino Martial Arts, much emphasis is put on weapons, Modern Arnis also includes hand-to-hand combat, joint locks, grappling dumog , and weapon disarming techniques. As well as keeping the classes varied and interesting, this blend makes Modern Arnis particularly useful tool for modern-day self defence. It makes for splendid co-ordination practice too, as training normally begins with two weapons, either a pair of sticks or a stick and a training knife.

It was said that to proclaim a student a "master" was considered ridiculous and a virtual death warrant as the individual would become challenged left and right to potentially lethal duels by other Arnisadores looking to make names for themselves. Belt ranking was a recent addition adopted from Japanese arts such as Karate and Judo , which had become more popular with Filipinos. They were added to give structure to the systems, and to be able to compete for the attention of students. With regards to its spread outside the Philippines, Arnis was brought to Hawaii and California as far back as the s by Filipino migrant workers. Even then, instructors teaching Arnis in the s and 70s were often reprimanded by their elders for publicly teaching a part of their culture that had been preserved through secrecy.
