Modern Arnis is a blend of many Filipino martial styles. The art uses sticks, knifes, and sword and also applies the applications to empty hand techniques utilizing locks, throws, chokes, and take downs. The effect is a dynamic self defense system known for its close quarters capability. Classes taught by Punong Guro Ben Harrison for the Michigan Modern Arnis Academy involve all aspects of Modern Arnis from open hand to weapons as handed down by the founder of Modern Arnis, Remy Amador Presas.


Punong Guro Ben Harrison has practiced Modern Arnis since 1979. Ben studied under Grand Master Remy Amador Presas up until his passing in 2001. Since then, Ben has continued his training under Dr. Remy P. Presas Jr. Ben is an affiliated instructor with Modern Arnis Remy P Presas International Organization (MARPPIO).
