Thanks for taking an interest in continuing your Combat Silat training. This training curriculum is designed to help you make steady progress on your journey. Each online course will help you get the understanding you need for mastery of pencak silat generally, and Combat Silat specifically when combined with the sweat of training.
This is the Level 2 curriculum. You need to have completed the Level 1 curriculum in order to learn this material. There are a total of XX lessons in this course as well as training exercises. You have 100 days to complete your training on this level.
Each lesson may have text (English), video, and photos to learn from. In addition, to studying those materials, you should also consider starting to immediately train with at least one other person.
At the end of each lesson you will be required to take a written quiz on the material covered in the lesson and get a passing grade in order to proceed to the next lesson.
NOTE: If you want to be considered as part of the larger family of Combat Silat then this learning center is a good start and contains all the materials you’ll need.
However, there are additional requirements such as regular Skype communication, training and getting bio-feedback from training partners, video submission testing, and regular training with a qualified instructor. If that is your goal, it is recommended that you contact Guru Stark before starting this training package.
- Before starting this course you must complete the required prerequisite course: Level 1
L2 Welcoming Posture and Meta-movement (Sikap Pasang and Gerak)
This is the basic hand position we’ll be drawing application from which is used for baiting and also to draw the techniques of this level from.
L2 Stepping with Meta-movements (Langkah Kombinasi)
This is the combination of our basic stepping movements called Langkah Satu from Level 1 along with the new Meta-movements 3 and 4.
L2 Turn-around Langkah
The Turn-around-Langkah is meant to keep you safer in environments where there are an unknown number of attackers. The method employs multiple components to help aid in your safety.
L2 Upper Body Evasion (Ales Kepala)
This lesson explores two new upper body evasions we’ll be drawing from for application and countering.
L2 Hand Checking (Pencegah Tangan)
This lesson on hand checking will teach you how to apply Sikap Pasang 3 and 4 as a check.
L2 Leg Check (Pencegah Kaki)
This lesson on leg checking will teach you how to apply perform the next leg check in the series.
L2 Hand entries (Masukan Tangan)
Extending the Sikap Pasang from baiting to counter defense is the purpose of the Hand Entries. They are used to exploit the openings of your aggressor’s attacks.
L2 Leg Entries (Masukan Kaki)
This lesson takes the basic langkah from just being a step to providing the basis for destruction of an opponents structure by countering their positioning and finding weakness.
L2 Elbow Entry (Masukan Siku)
Still built from the foundation of the Meta-movements, the Elbow Entries provide an option for those times when Hand Entries simply won’t work because the spatial relationship between yourself and your opponent is simply too close.
L2 Catching (Tangkapan)
The catches are another method that we use to slow the fight down, potentially allowing us an option for controlling the aggressors attacks. Again, they are simply just an extension of the sikap pasang and gerak.
L1 Exchanging (Pertukaran)
This category of movement is designed to help the practitioner develop the skills for handling continuous attacks and for moving from the “inside gate” to the “outside gate” and vice versa.
L2 Destruction Using Hands (Totok Tangan)
The core destructions teach the principle of attacking the body where it will have the most effect with the least effort. Hand Destructions are those methods that focus on the use of hands in attacking the vulnerable points of the limbs.
L2 Destruction Using Elbows (Totok Siku)
The core destructions teach the principle of attacking the body where it will have the most effect with the least effort. Elbow Destructions are those methods that focus on the use of elbows in attacking the vulnerable points of the limbs.
L2 Kick Destruction (Totok Sepak)
The core destructions teach the principle of attacking the body where it will have the most effect with the least effort. Kick Destructions are those methods that focus on the use of kicks in attacking the vulnerable points of the limbs.
L2 Stomping Destruction (Totok Samping/Kaki)

L2 Hand Takedown (Timbilan Tangan)
This lesson teaches about Timbilan Tangan. They are a means of using your arms as the primary method of taking an attacker down through disruption of structure primarily. Almost always performed alongside a method of controlling/stabilizing the attackers base.
L2 Foot Sweep (Timbilan Kaki)
This lesson will teach the student of pencak silat Pertempuran about sweeps, trips, and presses. They are an extension of the base control found within the Masukan Kaki.
L2 Ending Strike (Pukul Pembas)
Pukul Pembas are methods, which are designed for the eradication of an attacker when your life, or the life of another is threatened.
L2 Strangles (Cekikan)
Cekikan or Strangles are the methods we use to remove the threat of an attacker so they can no longer continue their attack by means of cutting off their oxygen and blood supplies.
L2 Joint Locks (Kuncian)
Kuncian, as in any martial art, are primarily used as a means of isolating an attackers limbs. In addition, we will never apply a lock if we cannot break the appendage being locked.
