What you'll do

Training begins and ends with the practice of traditional breathing-related movements for warming up and stretching, a kind of “Silat yoga” traditionally used for meditation, body and mind health. We will continue with the discovery of the first "Jurus" of the style, a series of traditional artistic and martial forms of the Silat, the "Seni" part, artistic component of the martial art. We will then study the concrete practice of Silat’s self-defense techniques, the "Beladiri" part, self-defense component of the martial art. You'll learn how to strike with all eight limbs (fists, feet, knees, and elbows), how to protect yourself in the traditional way of Silat and how to use it for self-defense. Finally, we will discover the cultural elements of Silat still inscribed in today's society, such as the famous kriss or keris. This is a non-contact training session, so no need to worry about being hit back! After the training you can take a shower and have a bath in our swimming pool if you wish.
