Only active members are featured in our gallery. Plan on Villanova Summer Camp 2020
Primary Trustee: Michael T. Bates*
2020 is the 37th year of the Modern Arnis East Coast Summer Camp founded by the late Professor & Joe Breidenstine in Philadelphia in 1983. Featuring the best in jujitsu, martial arts, modern arnis as well as karate.
Dozens, if not hundreds of students from around the world made the pilgrimage to Victoria, B.C. to visit Professor in the final months of his life. Professor traveled to Philadelphia, 6 months before his untimely death in 2001 to stay with Michael T. Bates, his senior advisor/student who was hosting what would be his final winter camp. His last public seminar was at Valley Forge Military Academy and College.
Professor stayed with Michael for 2 weeks to chart the future course of his Foundation. He was chosen to be its sole trustee.
To my amazement, 10 years after his passing, no one had a FB page dedicated solely to the Professor. I changed that in 2011 with the
FIRST &ONLY page for his life and legacy.
