Pentjak Silat Serak

silatlogoPentjak Silat means, literally, the formal movements or choreography (Pentjak) of fighting (Silat). Pentjak Silat is a very effective Indonesian martial art, renowned for its use of triangular motion and close quarters fighting style. Our instructor, Dr. Scott Sobel, holds the rank of Guru Besar in Pentjak Silat Serak fromĀ Dr. Andre KnustGraichen. The Pentjak Silat we practice is NOT a sport: it is an art of self-defense.

Guru Besar Scott Sobel was featured in Noordhollands Dagblad during our visit with Perguruan Pencak Silat Manyang in Holland.
