Code of Conduct


The International Modern Arnis Federation is the official Modern Arnis organization founded by Grandmaster Remy Amador Presas.

The IMAF is the governing body, mandated by Grandmaster Remy Amador Presas, to implement and execute his Vision for the future of Modern Arnis.

In honor of our teacher, Grandmaster Remy Amador Presas, all IMAF members must conduct themselves responsibly as representatives and ambassadors of Modern Arnis and the IMAF.

The Code of Conduct embodies the ethical and behavioral principals and standards for the IMAF. All members of the IMAF are required to agree to and abide by the Code of Conduct.

The Code of Conduct will ensure an atmosphere of openness for all members by clearly defining our ethical and behavioral principals and standards.

The Code of Conduct is subject to change without individual notification. All members are required to actively review changes to the Code of Conduct as they are announced on the IMAF website.

In areas of uncertainty, the relevant issue(s) will be referred to the Ethics Committee Chairperson for review and ruling. In case(s) of misconduct, the relevant issue(s) will be referred to the Steering Committee, Ethics Committee, and Disciplinary Committee Chairpersons for review and ruling.
