Headshot Pro Arnis Fundamentals

-Jince G

Does exactly what it says.  This is the beginner’s guide that I was looking for Filipino Martial Arts.  I have been training now for 3 weeks, and I feel good and look good.  Wish my other workouts were going this good.  Can’t get a better fundamentals course.

Three Big Benefits to Taking This Course...

Confidence from Certainty

Confidence in Certainty

You will have a rock solid ability to swing a stick, and your body will move to the places it needs be.  The certainty of being able to do that makes you confident in your ability to handle yourself in a high stress defense situation.

Power of Small things

Master of The Small Things

Many Pro Arnis practitioners are musicians (Coach David is a crack drummer).  As any skilled musician will tell you, there’s a lot of difference between someone that can kind of play an instrument and someone that knows all the small things about playing.  You will get that with this course!

Have Fun While Getting Safer!

Fun to do solo or with a partner, Pro Arnis is a safe, low impact exercise.

older man enjoys pro arnis finds it safer than mma

-Tim Walker

"Good Teaching. Safe!"

I’m a martial artist with 40 years.  It’s getting harder for me to find a gym that don’t have nothing but young bucks saying they got MMA and just beating one another.  I’m an oldhead. I don’t want to be hurt at my age.  Guro Semanas lays it out safely, and I can learn on my ipad in my home.  Lessons are legit.  Highly recommend for any athlete that wants to stay sharp and ready.

Athletic female runner finds Pro Arnis meets her self defense goals.

-Sandra Mac

"Great For Women!"

Running in the evenings is something I enjoy, but sometimes it can feel unsafe. Even though I’ve learned Krav Maga, there was a time when I faced a bigger guy and realized I might not be able to protect myself well enough. Thankfully, I got away, but it made me realize I needed something extra that wouldn’t interfere with my running schedule. This course was just what I needed. After three weeks, I feel confident enough to defend myself using a baton or a water bottle. Huge thanks to Coach D for helping me gain these important skills!

I Feel Safer

I've been practicing for a little over a week with my girlfriend. We both feel a lot safer now. We're both petite, and needed an art that could show us how to really protect ourselves, other than self-defense at the Y.

I had doubts that I could learn Pro Arnis from a video course, but it's put together so legit that I walked through it like a breeze. This course got the voodoo.

Momma didn't raise no fools! I learned the best way to make sure you don't look foolish is to have a great coach. Even long distance, Coach David's wise words resonate. A must buy for anyone wanting to keep it straight.

I just loved these videos. As a school teacher, I have to say these videos were beautifully designed delivery systems. Fun, too


No.  We do highly recommend eye protection.  As for practice sticks, tightly rolled and taped magazines serve very well if you aren’t modestly handy.

Yes.  The weapon does the work. The lessons are very easily scaled to different fitness levels, and can be done for short periods, while still making gains.

If you have one arm with okay range of motion, you should do fine.  Most drills can be done seated, in crutches, or with orthopedics. Contact us by forum if there is something you can’t figure out, and we’ll show you how to make an accommodation.  We will even shoot more video at our own expense if that is needed.

Safety is baked into all the lessons.  We talk about it openly, and how to create it in the drills.  When risk is greater in a drill, we tell you so you can make your own decisions about whether you want to do it.  Overall the risk of injury is low, if you do the drills as intended.

Very Secure.  We use Stripe, an industry leading, secure payment processor for Credit Card and Klarna payments.  We don’t actually ever handle or see your CC info.  Our website also uses two firewalls, and several internal security apps to protect you.

Absolutely.  We are GDPR and PCI compliant and adhere to the CAN-Spam act.  We will also not sell your private information.

Yes, more likely than not.  We use private video servers to allow the videos to be served to a wider audience.  The best way to know is to make your purchase and try it.  If it doesn’t work for you, contact customer service, and we will help you resolve the issue or politely refund your money.

Yes.  You receive an email walking you through access.  The course uses simple buttons to navigate, so if you have gotten far enough to read this, then you can do it.
