Silat Pertempuran Technique
There are many Pencak Silat styles in existence. Each has its own distinguishing characteristics, mannerisms and principles. You could say that each system has its own "flavor". Pencak Silat Pertempuran is no different.
Utilizing both soft and hard techniques, the flower and the fruit, this system seeks to find the way to win rather than fight an opponent. Fighting is a form of "clash" and we seek to avoid it if at all possible.
Additionally, Pencak Silat Pertempuran uses a "tuo" approach to training. That is, that the style of training is considered similar to the "old" style or "country" style pencak silat training. As such our focus is on developing a pencak silat movement style that is at once beautiful and practical.
