As we say goodbye to GB Frank Den Daas. We will move forward in his spirit, an that of BGB Rudy's.

Updated: Jun 8, 2021

The silat community had a huge loss this past April 12,2021. When GB Frank went to continue his journey with our heavenly family. I made a promise to him that I would continue on with his lineage of Pentjak Silat Ratu Adil that he received for BGB Rudy in 1991.

I'm still in mourning along with his family. GB Frank and myself had plans to provide an in depth history of Pentjak Silat Ratu Adil as well as Pentjak ADE. I have obtained a large amount of information from the archives of Dr Andre Knust Graichen from 2018 after his passing. He had done a lot of historical research on the history of Pentjak Silat in the USA. Along with video, photos and written materials and interviews. I was working with GB Frank before his passing to release a history of BGB Rudy's role as a founding pioneer in the Martial Arts community. Amongst one of the original pioneers, who brought Silat to the USA (west coast). It will cover all the years BGB Rudy TerLinden came to the USA. As well as the published material he had put out about his past in Indonesia. There have been many stories which have come out lately. That had only been rumoured, that are now being presented as fact.. With no proof. The information that we will be putting out are all verified with video and major publication as well as photo's and personal notes, from those involved...

We have continued to make inroads with other well respected Silat organizations. We will continue with our online programs as well as expand our seminar bookings. Keep checking back to see how we will be moving forward...
