- Development of Filipino martial arts and culture
- Preservation of quality an continuous development
- Teaching of values and standards
- Education of students and instructors

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.
