     Foremost is the principle of AUTONOMY for all member organizations, in a manner where there shall be no interference in the internal affairs of members. The co-equal doctrine - no organization is above the other is likewise a rule. In consensus, WORLDWIDE FAMILY of MODERN ARNIS or WFMA will be the official name. This is to establish for the world to recognize that we have an organization of people who come from the same lineage. The word family signifies everyone's recognition for others as belonging to the "MODERN ARNIS FAMILY", all in the common pursuit for the preservation and advancement of the LEGACY OF PROFESSOR REMY A. PRESAS, as we all say... THE FLOW MUST CONTINUE.
