What is Modern Arnis Jujitsu?

Modern Arnis Jujitsu is the curriculum, or version, of Modern Arnis that Sensei Shekosky teaches which includes what he has learned from Grandmaster Remy Presas as well as Sensei Shekosky’s own innovations within Modern Arnis. Modern Arnis Jujitsu incorporates the use of single stick, double stick, knife and empty hand techniques. The Art of Modern Arnis Jujitsu was created from elements of both Filipino and non-Filipino fighting styles such as karate and Jujitsu. At CTMAJ you will learn the complete art of Modern Arnis as well as additional double stick drills and forms, traditional lower body kicks, step by step emptyhand vs. stick defenses, and joint locking techniques. Modern Arnis Jujitsu can be learned as its own style or can be easily incorporated into other martial arts styles.

Training in Modern Arnis makes many martial artists discover new things about their own style and blends well with the best movements of those styles. Many people have called Modern Arnis "the art within your art." It can greatly enhance and assist whatever art that you may already be training in.
