Belt ranking was a recent addition adopted from Japanese arts such as Karate and Judo , which had become more popular with Filipinos.

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.
He ran seminars with the help of other masters such as Maurice Novoa a Wing Chun instructor. As a result, many systems of Arnis have been modified in varying degrees to make them more marketable to a worldwide audience.
Usually this involves increased emphasis on locking, controls, and disarms, focusing mainly on aspects of self-defense. However, most styles follow the philosophy that the best defense is a good offense. Modern training methods tend to de-emphasize careful footwork and low stances, stressing the learning of techniques in favor of more direct and often lethal tactics designed to instantly end an encounter.
Arnis was first introduced in to some public and private school teachers when Remy Presas taught his personal style of Arnis which he called " Modern Arnis ".
The style "Modern Arnis" is not synonymous with the concept of modern or contemporary Arnis, where it has become a full blown sport embraced by the Department of Education, although there are some similarities. There was no formal program for Arnis from s to s. Although some schools taught Arnis, these were not official nor prescribed. The Office of Senator Mercado was given the authority to designate the Arnis instructors for the said program.
The Arnis instructors designated by Senator Mercado were informally called the "Mercado boys". They were Mr. Jeremias V. Dela Cruz, Rodel Dagooc and others who were direct students of Mr. Remy Presas of the Modern Arnis style. In this memorandum, there were two seminars conducted: October 6—11, in Baguio City and November 10—15, in General Santos City. The Arnis Module Development however did not push through. Dela Cruz. Feliciano N. He met with the top NSA officials at that time; however, nothing happened.
Aniano Lota, Jr. And this was the start of the modern, contemporary and prevailing Arnis in the Department of Education. In just two months, Arnis became part of the Palarong Pambansa National Games as a demonstration sport.
The Palarong Pambansa was held in Naga City, Bicol Region with nine out of the seventeen regions of the Philippines participating.
National, regional and provincial Arnis Seminars were conducted by the tandem of Mr. Feliciano "Len" Toledo, and with the financial and logistical backing of the Department of Education. In , Arnis was already a regular event in the Palarong Pambansa with all seventeen regions participating.
Five weight divisions in the Full-contact Event and four categories in the Anyo Forms Event were played and became part of the official medal tally of the participants. This was held in Coronadal in Mindanao. Arnis Seminars were continued in national, regional and provincial levels. These were all conducted by the tandem of Mr. In , Arnis was played in the Palarong Pambansa and again, with all seventeen regions participating.
All nine events were played. This was held in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. Aside from Sports Officiating and Accreditation seminars, Coaching and skill training seminars continued in national, regional and provincial levels. Requests from cities and even districts were also welcomed. The "evangelization" of Arnis was continued and both Gialogo and Lota were careful not to teach their personal styles. Both taught in "generic" form and focused on the rules of sports as promulgated by the Department of Education.
From the original five member teams, the number doubled with the inclusion of the girls. The medal tally also doubled from nine to eighteen. Richardson Gialogo and Mr. Again, both secondary boys and girls competed in the eighteen categories.
In the Palarong Pambansa, Elementary students joined. The matches were preceded by cock-fighting and could be held in any open space, sometimes in a specially constructed enclosure. Arnisadores believe this tradition pre-dates the colonial period, pointing to similar practices of kickboxing matches in mainland Indochina as evidence.
Spanish records tell of such duelling areas where cock-fights took place. The founders of most of the popular Arnis systems were famous duelists and legends circulate about how many opponents they killed.
In rural areas throughout the Philippines today, modern Arnis matches are still held in dueling arenas. In bigger cities, recreations of duels are sometimes held at parks by local Arnis training-halls. These demonstrations are not choreographed beforehand but neither are they full-contact competitions. In modern times, public dueling with blades has been deemed illegal in the Philippines due to potential injury or death.
Duelling with live sticks and minimal protection still occurs during barrio fiestas in some towns such as in Paete in Laguna. There are two main types of Arnis practised as a sport. WEKAF[ edit ] The WEKAF system works on a point must system similar to boxing where participants spar with live sticks while wearing a long padded vest with skirt and sleeves and a helmet similar to Kendo headgear. Hitting below the thigh is prohibited. This format has sometimes been criticized because it emphasizes a heavy offense at the expense of defensive techniques sometimes with players raining blows on each other without defending, giving rise to the impression that combatants are merely hitting each other in a disorganized way.
This has been tackled by introducing a "four second rule"[ clarification needed ], to prevent constant and unrealistic attacks, and judges do not to score the same strike if the fighter uses it more than twice in succession. Judges warn fighters and remove points if they continue after two warnings. However, fights can easily come down to an unrealistic attack from an unskilled fighter who impresses judges with many body hits after taking two or three clear, strong hits to the hands and head.
Another complaint about the WEKAF system is that it uses the point must system , which is more subjective depending on who is judging. Since the WEKAF system is more risky, it is preferred by many practitioners who want to test themselves. The WEKAF system is the most widely used format internationally ARPI[ edit ] Safety equipment used in Arnis tournaments with padded vests, sticks, headgear and groin guards Arnis competitions uses foam-padded sticks about an inch in diameter with thin rattan cores roughly a centimeter in diameter.
These sticks are meant to break before serious injury occurs. For protection, the same headgear used in the WEKAF system, and a large groin guard is required for males. Vests optional for men, required for women , optional armguards, shinguards and leg wraps are used. Scoring is more similar to fencing where fighters are separated after solid clean hits are made observed by multiple judges stationed at different positions to observe if hits were clean and unblocked, and determine the strength of the strike by the loudness of the impact.
Thrusts to the body score points, but are harder to present to judges for scoring because they make less noise and it is difficult to determine impact.
Punches, kicks and throws are not allowed. Prolonged clinching to prevent the opponent from striking is not allowed similar to Western Boxing to keep the game moving and more interesting for audience that may not appreciate the fine and practical aspects of grappling.
Disarms must be performed quickly and cleanly to count. Because the legs are fair targets, in lighter weight divisions, complex evasion and deep lunges where players lie horizontal with the torso almost touching the floor to extend reach are often seen. The emphasis of the ARPI system is on player safety, as proponents are applying to become a recognized Olympic sport like judo , karate , taekwondo , wrestling , boxing , and fencing.
Even though padded sticks are used in the sport, players regularly retain large bruises that last for weeks and sometimes minor injuries to joints and because of the sheer amount of force generated by conditioned practitioners. Sometimes the stuffing commonly comes off from the harder hitting players and one cause of injury is when a player is struck by the exposed rattan core. Still, these are relatively minor as compared to injuries sustained when practitioners spar with live sticks.
One major problem with the ARPI system is that because the padded sticks with light rattan cores are used, they tend to flex and "lag", thus making the experience significantly different from using a live stick and in that sense, lessens the "realism" of this system. This is acceptable though as again, the emphasis is on safety. Aside from the visual appeal, practical combative applications must be clearly seen so as to avoid looking like just majorettes in marching bands who just twirl batons and dance a concept similar to the Floreio "flourish" aspect of Capoeira and to Tricking which are more for show than practicality.
Others[ edit ] In another variation that simulates knife fights, competitors use false blades edged with lipstick to mark where an opponent has been struck.
