About the WMAA
The World Modern Arnis Alliance is the premier organization in the Western Hemisphere teaching the Presas Family Combat Systems of Modern Arnis and Kombatan. The WMAA has been established with a two-fold purpose in mind.
Our first goal is to further the growth of Arnis in the world. Secondly, our wish is to establish standards, set forth by Grandmasters Remy, Ernesto & Roberto Presas, throughout the Arnis community.
We hope to achieve this by setting forth a specific training program to legitimize our art and also set standards for training. You will find by creating these standards, we will be legitimizing your credentials as a practitioner by tracking your lineage. This will be achieved through a Student Registry so that each member will have a record of their rank as they progress through each level. This will prevent any discrepancy as to what belt level you have earned, because your background in arnis can be verified.
For those individuals who do not have an instructor of significant rank or for those working on their own, rank promotion is available. Along with the availability of rank certificates, you will have access to a directory of black belts, schools, instructors and students to establish a network within our arnis community. These people would be available to assist individuals with their training when needed
