Master McConnell

With over 42 years of martial arts experience, Dan McConnell brings a wealth of knowledge to his students. He advocates the blending of martial arts and adapting techniques to work for the individual and the situation.

Master McConnell is:

  • The Founder of United Modern Arnis,
  • A Lakan Anim (6th degree black belt) NSI/Modern Arnis, 
  • Full Instructor Level 2 in Renegade Jeet Kune Do  
  • Yondan (4th dan) in Aikido with Aikido Schools of Ueshiba.

His background also includes training in Tae Kwan Do, Bando/Jeet Kune Do, Pencak Silat Mande Muda, Marcial Tirada Kali, and Iaido.

Dan is a Lieutenant on a very large fire department where he serves as his battalion’s medical officer. For several years he was part of the TEMS Team (Tactical EMS Team) and spent half of his time with SWAT or the narcotics tactical entry team, INTAC.

Master McConnell has learned to appreciate the beauty and effectiveness of all martial arts. He strongly believes in cross training so that a student can become familiar with more than one way of moving and more than one approach, to enable the student to see the connection between different styles and systems.

Master McConnell has been fortunate to have been trained by the founders of two systems and world class teachers in others.

In December of 2013 Master McConnell was inducted into the Remy A. Presas Modern Arnis Black Belt Hall of Fame.
