Arnis is a national sport, and learning about it is an excellent way to foster patriotism among students and teachers. Further, Arnis should remain an essential subject/lesson taught among Filipino learners despite the pandemic. The study examined how experts validated the researcher-made Arnis module and how learners could use and provide feedback successfully. The study employed a qualitative descriptive design and included three (3) experts in Physical Education, Languages, and Learning Resource Development and twenty (20) grade 7 learner-users. Findings revealed that the module met the content, language, layout, and design validity standards. The learners' feedback included the following: (1) appropriate activity selection, (2) clear and useful illustrations, (3) new knowledge acquired, (4) organized lessons, and (5) difficulty in performance task assessment. Additionally, the module highlights features that motivate learners to learn and guide learners to become independent, which is one of the Self-Learning Modules' objectives. The module is consistent with the Physical Education curriculum guide and the Department of Education's Most Essential Learning Competencies. It complies with the mandate of Republic Act 9850 and the Department's core values, which include "Makabansa," which promotes patriotism among students. Physical Education teachers are strongly encouraged to utilize the developed module for Grade 7 Physical Education.
