We are now teaching the art of Kombatan/Modern Arnis here in Vallejo CA, as handed down to us by GM Ernest Presas Sr. If interested you can PM or contact me at Lakanduli1@yahoo.com.

What is Kombatan?
Kombatan is simply GM Ernesto Preas'  system of Modern Arnis(always referred to as GM Remy's art).

Kombatan concentrates on showing the student stickwork(Doble baston, solo baston, espada y daga, and dulo dulo) then Daga/knife fighting. Followed by Mano mano/emptyhand techniques.

Who are we?
We are a group called ARMAS-inc. A-advance, R-research, of M-Martial, A-arts, S-systems. We are not a new style. We are a group of FMA practitioners who want to preserve the FMA in our own way. We still do our research in other systems be ti FMA or not. It is a way of evolving. The Goal of ARMAS is to preserve the art of FMA by teaching the new Generation. We are the core group of Kombatan in Vallejo CA.
