The Martial Art of Pencak Silat has over 800 known styles in Indonesia and can be found in many South-East Asian countries. The Indonesian style of Pencak Silat was historically disguised as a dance during the Dutch occupation, with the most effective techniques hidden in the art form.
Previously called the ‘Dutch East Indies’, the people of Indonesia rose up against oppression and used Pencak Silat (that had been hidden for centuries) to regain their independence at the end of World War II. Pencak Silat then officially became a sport. It is a style that has retained its tradition throughout the years, has been proven on the battle-field and remains one of the most effective, authentic and complete martial art systems in the world.
Guru Eka Aris Suhartanto is the founder of Wirayudha Pencak Silat, an Indonesian martial art from Yogyakarta, Java. Wirayudha Pencak Silat is a full-body fighting form incorporating weapons, striking, locking, breaking, take-down techniques, art form and spirituality. Wirayudha Pencak Silat combines multiple attacks using all limbs and includes take down techniques, locks and holds rendering the opponent immobile while keeping two feet on the ground. The self-defence aspect includes how to defend against armed opponents, disarming techniques and the use of weapons for life and death situations. The spiritual element of Pencak Silat offers techniques to help balance your mind, body and spirit.
