The first rule of Pencak Silat

The first and most important rule of Pencak Silat is…

Rule 1) Survive.

Everything else is secondary.

…because if that first thing doesn’t happen, nothing else will either.

There are many great reasons to study Silat.

  • Safety
  • Health
  • Peace of mind
  • Confidence
  • Longevity
  • Strength
  • Power
  • Friends
  • Fun
  • Stress Relief
  • Fitness

…and many more.

But in Silat short term survival is first.

  • You can survive several weeks without food.
  • You can survive several days without water.
  • You can survive a few minutes without air.

When a crazed maniac is swinging a machete at your head you only have a second…

…maybe less..

..to use your head and stay alive.

This is where we begin training in Pencak Silat.
