Organizations

International Modern Arnis Federation Philippines

IMAF Philippines was founded by Professor Remy Presas, whose goal was to establish generations of arnis practitioners of all ages dedicated to the practice, promotion, and preservation of arnis in the Philippines and abroad.

The Council of Masters of IMAFP is the safe-keeper of the arnis tradition as well as its guiding spirit. It is this tradition that spurs them to undertake the task of strengthening the classical roots of Modern Arnis.
