In my FMA journey, I have come incorporate my spiritual side with my physical side. I made change in my style when I teach I try to include Chi building exercises in to the lessons. I have added learning about the spiritual side in the higher levels as well. Many of the old FMA Masters & Grand Masters were also spiritual/mystic people. Many people just focused on their GM's physical fighting side not their spiritual side. Keeping yourself in balance in your spirit is as important as…Continue
In the early 1980s, Jamie Lagang was exposed to the art of escrima by GM Regino Illustrisimo. His parents would often bring him when visiting GM Regino and his wife, who were close friends of the family. GM Regino would take him aside and show some basic techniques and encouraged him to learn the art. This sparked his interest.
In 1983, Jamie was introduced to the Largo Mano…Continue

Living in Quiapo, Manila and before Grandmaster Presas left for the
United States, promulgating Modern Arnis at the school when other instructors were not
around Grandmaster Presas would work out with his son Remy Jr., certain things he
would practice with Remy Jr. that he did not with others. Grandmaster Presas had

were things that were kept to himself or were…Continue

A true lover of sports, Mr. Remy A. Presas is the man behind Modern Arnis today. From the cold tomb of oblivion, Mr. Presas gave new life and meaning to the true Filipino martial art called Arnis. Arnis died with the passage of time as the incontrovertible onslaught of modern living and foreign influences blotted out this gem of the Filipino culture to merely one of the things of the forgotten past. Truly Arnis died with the…Continue

Before it was introduced in Manila, modern arnis has its humble beginnings in Bacolod City in the Visayas where the author first learned the techniques of the art. Being a master of many martial arts, the author was able to compare the intrinsic qualities of Arnis with other martial arts. And this comparison led him to improvise the antiquated techniques of Arnis not only for reasons of pacing with the times but also for utmost effectivity. These improved techniques were then taught for the…Continue
