DVD # 3 - N.S.I. Modern Arnis/ Kali principles that work right now, functional and direct cross referenced to empty hand and Travel Wrench tactics that connect the systems. 

Modern Arnis was a natural fit for Worden and he immediately realized the value of Professor Remy's conceptual teaching methodology of "the art within your art. "Without hesitation in 1983 Worden renamed his school "the Natural Spirit Chapter of Modern Arnis." Worden formulates and implements the strategy of connecting the systems with emphasis on the development of physical attributes, psychological conditioning, and legal knowledge for the purpose of personal protection. Worden believes the steps for triumphing in a self-defense situation need to be simple, easy, and adaptable to the environment. 

. Presas encouraged Worden to integrate the classical strategies of Filipino knife fighting directly into his teachings. Referred to as sub-systems the elements of Banda y Banda (side to side), Crossada (crossing) Palis Palis (passing with the force), Rompida (diagonal slashing), Figure Eight, Ocho Ocho (figure eight), and Espada y Daga (sword and dagger) were seamlessly blended into Worden's interpretation of Modern Arnis. Additionally by defining functional usage of the pical (ice-pick/reverse grip) and the saksak (hammer or standard grip) the dynamics of both close quarter knife and long range bolo/machete skill development propelled Worden into the limelight of progressive martial arts and the knife industry.

    Worden was constantly blending and fusing the technical aspects of arts and systems that complemented the dynamic flow of Modern Arnis. Professor Presas integrated elements of Wing Chun for his trapping hands which enhanced the speed and finesse of his lock flow compliance strategies.Following those foundation ideals Worden sought out the Wing Chun connection through the evolutionary core elements of Non-Classical Gung Fu and the original teachings of Bruce Lee's first student Jesse Glover. By integrating Presas joint lock flow, Non-Classical Gung Fu, and silat driven base disruptions Worden formulated the Close Quarter Combat standing grappling strategies that he has instructed to thousands of U.S. Army Special Forces soldiers.

     

    Additionally, in an effort to leave no stone unturned and fill any possible technical voids Worden sought out the diverse versatility of Jeet Kune Do.Influenced by the late Ted Lucaylucay, Leonard Trigg, and Richard Bustillo, Worden is acknowledged and certified as a senior IMB Instructor and a second Generation Jeet Kune Do Instructor under the famed Richard Bustillo. Legendary Jeet Kune Do Senior Taky Kimura stated "Kelly Worden is an American Icon of progressive martial arts."

    Most importantly, his relationship with Professor Presas lasted over years and resulted in him achieving Datu status (a title literally meaning “tribal chieftain,” but also used to denote a master of Filipino martial arts). Datu Worden was the second out of six Datus appointed by the Grandmaster and the first appointed in North America.As a result, he carries on the tradition of Modern Arnis through his long-established federation, Natural Spirit International (NSI). In the final days of his life, Professor Remy A. Presas summoned Roland P. Dantes and Kelly S. Worden and proclaimed "You are not my students, you are my brothers!" 'Nuff said!'

    Travel Wrench - The Travel Wrench’s design can be traced to Worden’s world-class expertise in Filipino martial arts. Its L-shaped frame is directly influenced by the indigenous Filipino knife, the kerambit. Configured with a ring at the top of the handle for placement of the index finger, the Travel Wrench’s ergonomics allow for absolute weapon retention even if one’s grip opens.From its ring it extends into the handle and then turns ninety degrees forming a bar-shaped surface positioned at the bottom of the fist. It is with this bar that punishing hammer-fist styles of blocks and strikes can be inflicted. The end of this bar terminates in a protrusion extending beyond the fist allowing for pin-point thrusts against the eyes, throat, or other vital points. Lastly, the finger ring is also a striking surface when a top-fist or phoenix-eye type of blow is utilized. Ruthless, dynamic, and years ahead of the industry, the Travel Wrench is still considered one of the 'World's most covert and effective self defense weapons and practical training methodologies ever designed!'
