The framework for the training of AEK is set by a curriculum. Students are first taught in the style "Combat Arnis" of master J. Cui Brocka, before they are later introduced to other styles.
To guarantee a consistent high standard of training, the Chief-Instructor (Dr. Gunnar Siebert) is assisted by wo committees (the Technique- and Antas-committee), which actively contribute to the development of AEK.
Dr. Gunnar Siebert ist author of the renown book: ARNIS ESCRIMA KALI - Die Kunst der wirbelnden Stöcke, published by Weinmann.
As in previous years, an Instructor-Camp will be arranged for all active teachers within the AEK (and everybody who is interested in becoming one).
The Instructor-Camp will be held at the end of the year, more details will be published shortly. Any questions regarding this event can be sent to the Chief-Instructor directly.
