Arnis History

ARNIS The Martial Art

      The onset of the twentieth century brought about the demise of Arnis in the country. With the coming of the Americans, the Filipinos were in awe with the new culture, that most indigenous cultures were relegated almost to oblivion. Our very own Arnis, the Filipino martial art, almost suffered the same fate. Once a prevalent martial art of the pre-Spanish natives and the illustrados of the Spanish era, Arnis all but disappeared in the urban areas and was mostly preserved in the provinces. Credit should be given to our traditional guro / maestro or grandmasters, illustrious men who painstakingly preserved Arnis for us. It is characterized by the use of swinging and twirling movements, accompanied by striking, thrusting and parrying techniques for defense and offense.
