Indonesian Silat Classes
In a non-competitive environment, students learn the rare style of Silat. This style has also been referred to as Indonesian Kung-Fu or Pukulan.
Silat is well known for being a very “raw” martial art. It is very dynamic, high-energy and it gets right to the point. Where some arts focus on long complex drills that are best used in sport competition, the movements of Silat are designed to efficiently deal with dangerous situations.
It is also well known for being a full range martial art that has the goal of the practitioner being able to fight back from all positions. One could expect to learn strikes and techniques while standing and on the ground, as well as pins, throws, knife techniques, and much more!
In this art learning to be spontaneous, creative, and intuitive are key. Using the movements of the four animals we learn a variety of different movements and tactics as we progress through the martial art.
Each animal helps to teach us another aspect of how to defend ourselves, while also allowing us to grow into the person we want to become.
Students are encouraged to both challenge and take good care of themselves. Classes are offered for men and women at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels.
