Pencak Silat Pertempuran is a simplified, self-protection framework utilizing aspects of pencak silat contextualized to life in the “west.” We utilize “dirty boxing,” ground fighting, traditional & improvised weapons, including EDC and basic firearms awareness. In addition, PSP will also increase your overall fitness, conditioning, mobility, & flexibility.
Pencak Silat Pertempuran is built on the idea that less is more. By focusing on development of movement and allowing modification for the needs and context of the individual, practitioners learn application from defensive methods to advanced application of weapons to include concealed carry.
Pencak Silat Pertempuran is organized and systematic. The system design provides organic study and expression within the framework. This is unique because it allows a clear method for growth while also being combative and useful for today.
Pencak Silat Pertempuran is obviously not a traditional martial arts approach. Both contemporary western combat methodologies and south east asian methodologies are used. This creates a balance between needing a system that is easy to learn but also street effective, even for those who deal with violence professionally.
The instructors of pencak Silat Pertempuran are focused on creating a “village or tribal style.” Meaning, that our intent is to treat each practitioner and instructor of PSP as part of our family. If you’re into deep study, hard work, some bruises, and enjoying the journey then you’ll probably fit in.
In pencak silat Pertempuran we recognize that we all have weaknesses and we all have strengths. It’s our job to help you find them and shore up what needs it and capitalize on your strengths. It’ll be organic enough to be combative but systematic enough to develop attributes that are critical to high-level pencak silat movement, adaptability, and spontaneity.
Pencak Silat Pertempuran is focused on principles, positions, and movement mechanics that best exemplify the most common aspects of self-protection, but that are enhanced through your own personal expression, exploration, and adaptation to the culture you live in.
