VEE-ARNIS-JITSU is one of the few systems of martial arts that tries to give the student a working knowledge of self-defense as soon as possible. The system's founder, Prof. Visitation has achieved legendary status among martial artists on the East Coast.
The Vee-Arnis system incorporates the stick defenses and techniques of Filipino Arnis and the grappling methods of Japanese Jiu-jitsu.
PROFESSOR VISITACION (1909 - 1999) is one of the legends of American martial arts. Known as Professor Vee to his students, he taught in the U.S. for over 40 years.
Incorporating the martial arts of his homeland, Proffesor Vee also studied and incorporated numerous aspects of many different styles of martial arts into his system, Vee-Arnis-Jitsu. While stressing highly effective techniques, Professor Vee always taught that humility and brotherhood are the goals for all martial artists.
