Since 1989 the DAV hosts his summercamp every two years. Always with around 100 or more participants  (2007: 189 participants) from many nations (2007: 12 nations). It is a main event for Modern Arnis practitioners all over the world.

This year it is situated in Karlsruhe, the door to the famous black forest, about a good hour drive away from the international airports of Frankfurt and Stuttgart, also connected with direct trains from there. So it is very easy to get there.
