Modern Arnis

Instructor Jason Farnsworth has been training under

Datu Hartman to bring us Modern Arnis!

Modern Arnis is a Filipino based martial art, combining both western and eastern style martial arts. Filipino martial arts (FMA) heavily emphasize a weapon based system. The Modern Arnis curriculum centers around usage of the escrima (the stick), the arnis (the knife), as well as empty hand fighting skills. During this course you will learn topics such as Boxing, Striking, Trapping, Blocking, Defending, Disarming, etc. You will learn disarming techniques both for when wielding the escrima as well as being unarmed. FMA partner-based drills incorporate fighting techniques using 1 or 2 escrimas.

Modern Arnis classes will be offered twice a week: On Wednesday from 6-7pm and Saturday from 11-12pm. It is recommended that students enrolling be of 14 years or older as the curriculum heavily emphasizes weapon usage.

Tuition: $65/ Month
