Presas became a national figure in the Philippines for his blending of island fighting styles and elements of other martial arts into one system, which he named modern arnis. By 1970, in his mid-30s, Presas had become one of his country’s premier stick fighters, promoting the sport and regularly teaching it in physical education classes throughout the land. Presas traveled to the United States in 1975 on a government-sponsored good-will tour. His efforts in the U.S. resulted in his twice being awarded membership in the Black Belt Hall of Fame (1982 Instructor of the Year and 1984 Weapons Expert of the Year)

Presas taught his system of armed and unarmed self-defense to students of every ilk, including law officers, senior citizens and even movie stars. “Background doesn’t matter,” Presas said. “If you have the strength, you can participate.” And, unlike many martial arts, arnis doesn’t require years of training to gain competency. It is possible to learn the fundamentals of arnis in a 36-hour basic course. This classic instructional text pulls together many of those fundamentals—a variety of stretches and warm-ups, the 12 basic striking and defense systems of modern arnis, as well as stick- and sword-disarming methods, hand-to-hand combat (“trapping hands”) and so much more.

As a bonus, the digital edition of Modern Arnis includes five Black Belt magazine articles about Presas and the practice of this ancient combat system that’s been updated for today’s world. The digital version of Modern Arnis: The Filipino Art of Stick Fighting is a must-have for practitioners of any martial art.
