Our aim is to provide the highest quality of martial arts instruction by helping you obtain the ultimate goals you desire. In order to achieve this, your nationally qualified instructors will treat you as an individual, paying personal attention and giving encouragement while you progress at your own pace.
At our club you will find a very friendly, courteous and safe environment. In fact, we pride ourselves on our instructors being very approachable and helpful. You will not find any inflated egos, attitudes or intimidation.
Through your training you will develop, physically, mentally and spiritually, making you a more complete and confident person. To strive to develop a good character within ourself will ultimately reflect amongst others.
In learning Kombatan Arnis, all techniques will be explained in detail giving you the understanding of the background, context, progression and philosophy. Our training methodology is backed up by science, so it is not just an opinion. Gaining a deeper insight will improve and personalise your technique rather than just going through the motions. We do not teach, “monkey see, monkey do.” You discover your own path.
Kombatan Arnis gives you the opportunity to train in a vast cross section of martial arts under the one roof and up to 7 days a week. Due to its soft flowing multiple techniques, using the attacker’s strength against themselves, it makes training suitable for men and women. Besides these benefits, stick training is actually a lot of fun.
Kombatan Australia is sanctioned by the International Philippine Martial Arts Federation (IPMAF) under the direction of Grandmaster Ernesto A. Presas Snr – Founder and President of this system. We are the Australian & New Zealand Headquarters for Filipino Kombatan Arnis – Presas Style.
You will also have the opportunity to travel with our club to the biannual world training camp in the Philippines to train with the Grandmaster and other international students every 2 years, or at other country in the world on the in-between years. We are a very active club both nationally and internationally.
At Kombatan Australia we also teach Edged Weapon Survival (EWS), seperate to Kombatan Arnis.
EWS training procedures elevate practices to the highest level of reflexive development through highly sophisticated methods of integration. EWS takes you from civilian mentality to soldier mentality. EWS is the highest level of training of combat / self defence – not martial arts.
