On these pages the Modern Arnis - Mano Mano Organisation Germany (short: MAMD) introduces itself with its self-defence system "Kombatan". This system was founded by the Philippine Grand Master Ernesto A. Presas Sr. (10th Dan) and spread around the whole world. It is generally divided into two parts: the Modern Arnis - the stick and weapon fight and the Mano Mano - the unarmed self-defense.
On 01 January 1994 Wolfgang Schnur founded the Modern Arnis - Mano Mano Organisation Deutschland. Over the years he spread the system in Germany and developed it further. For his work and his loyalty to Grandmaster Ernesto Presas Sr. (10th Dan) he was awarded the 10th Dan by the Presas family in 2014.
Our Modern Arnis - Mano Mano is a highly ramified close combat system that allows the beginner a quick introduction to effective self-defense and offers the advanced a wide range of techniques to perfect his martial arts. The training starts with simple but effective techniques, which increase more and more in scope and combination as the training progresses. The training program includes Filipino stick and weapon fighting as well as unarmed self-defense, whereby it is less and less important to learn more and more artistic movements. For simple basic techniques more and more possibilities of resistance are developing.
