Welcome to Pentjak Silat USA
PENTJAK SILAT USA TM Pentjak Silat USA is a program developed to give the practitioner of Pentjak Silat the core of Silat concepts, theories, principles, training methods and applications. It looks at what is at the heart of the fundamentals of Pentjak Silat and presents that to the practitioner. This allows each practitioner to integrate their own body awareness and movement to the circumstances presented without employing a specific style of movement. We are not a new system or style, rather we present a basic platform from which many of the Silat styles operate. We have at our core a cross section of styles, each one also a cross section or composite of other styles and so on. The advantage to this kind of curriculum is that there are no restrictions to one method, therefore leaving room for exploration.
At Pentjak Silat USA, we believe that everyone can benefit from martial arts training. Our programs are designed to help you achieve your fitness goals, develop self-defense skills, and improve your overall well-being. Our trainers are passionate about helping you become the best version of yourself, both on and off the mat.
