The Modern Arnis material demonstrated on these DVD’s is the requirement material specifically taught at Cromwell Martial Arts and is not intended to represent any other style or curriculum. The majority of the material demonstrated are techniques learned from Frank Shekosky as taught to him by Grand Master Remy A. Presas, the founder of Modern Arnis. Some techniques demonstrated on the videos have been added to the curriculum or modified by Frank Shekosky. Sparring in our Modern Arnis curriculum consists of basic sparring, which is fixed patterns or semi-freestyle patterns used to learn and increase skill level, and freestyle sparring which is not pre-arranged and the intent is to subdue the opponent.

"The arnis curriculum dvd's are great. Sensei Shekosky does an incredible job of using simple language to convey advanced concepts and movements. The camera work and angles make it easy to follow what is happening while Sensei is explaining it. I have been training continuously in the martial arts for 18 years and feel this program is filling a gap in my training. I highly recommend the arnis videos to anyone, regardless of style, rank, or experience with stick work."

"When I found out that CMA was planning on putting together instructional DVDs I immediately put a deposit down to get the first copy. I'm pleased to say it was worth the wait! I got my DVD after Wednesday class and watched it as soon as I got home. Sensei and Sifu Wayne did a phenomenal production job. The DVD looks very professional. It begins with Sifu Debbie doing Star Block Set and One Pinan, followed by Sensei and Sifu Jim going over every self-defense technique in the Yellow Belt curriculum. Sifu Debbie's kiais are awesome! What makes the DVD great is that the material is done at half and full speeds and shown from different angles. This is a great tool for everyone who wishes to practice at home between classes and/or perfect their material. I highly recommend it to everyone regardless of their rank. Overall, I'm very happy with the product and look forward to the rest of the series. This DVD makes a great gift and a perfect stocking stuffer too. Furthermore! , it is reasonably priced. Please support our School and order your copy today!"
