Welcome to the KAMAO Online website. I am creating this site as a repository of lessons, techniques, and forms. It is a work in progress and I will be building it portion by portion. I will be recording my updates as well. Blackbelts and trainers, as well as members will be given access to select pages while a separate portion will be open to the public.
The initial function of this site is to house Arnis instructional material. It is a membership site with the purpose to Preserve, Promote, and Propagate Arnis, and the contribution of members will help in making this endeavor a sustainable one. This site will also serve as a way for the KAMAO community to have a virtual common room to exchange ideas, communicate, coordinate, and collaborate. Of course, KAMAO also welcomes new members every time, and it is hoped that this website may be able to help facilitate Arnis enthusiasts to join in our cause.
As a membership site, this platform will deliver one lesson, be it a certain material, training program, skill, or course, once a week. This lesson will be presented, discussed, and explained during the synchronous live Q and A session every Saturday, 1 to 2pm for regular members, and 2 to 3 for beginners, Philippine time. The lessons and all materials will be posted in pages that members will be able to access, as well as recordings of the Q and A live sessions. Therefore, members who cannot attend the live video lessons every Saturday will be able to easily access all these materials conveniently, any time and at their own pace. The members, by paying their membership subscription fee, will thus support this conservation effort and help preserve Arnis, migrate the lessons online, and grow the library for everyone to access and benefit from. In short, the students of the martial art learn, and help out as well.
Eventually, it is hoped that KAMAO Online grow its library as the repository of Arnis material, as an extensive, intensive, and complete Arnis Archive for the Arnis scholar. Thank you for visiting our site. Pugay!
