DO I NEED TO BE AT A CERTAIN EXPERIENCE LEVEL TO TRAIN PENCAK SILAT?
Training in Pencak Silat is reiterative, which means that each lesson offers new insights and material to participants of all experience levels. Your skill will build over time, as will your ability to absorb the different aspects of each lesson.
DO YOU TEACH WEAPONRY?
Fundamentally, pencak silat is a bladed art. Our motion must always take into account the chance that an opponent is armed, and empty hand motions work well with weapons. The weapons of Inti Ombak are the stick, staff, knife, machete, sword, whip, sickle, kerambit, and sai.
WHERE ARE THE CLASSES LOCATED?
Currently I teach out of my home, to students at Stony Brook University, and in the homes of my students or at seminars.
DO YOU OFFER ONLINE INSTRUCTION?
Yes, we offer lessons in pencak silat over the internet as well as in person.
