Arts & Journey
In its purest form, martial arts manifest very beautiful philosophical ideas. To me, a true martial artist is the one who understands his true-self and be able to control (fight) bad part of himself. I have been fascinated with the world of martial arts since very early age, inspired by my father and my late grand father who are silat and karate masters, respectively. I earned the rank of Pendekar at the age of 15 years old from a famous pencak silat school, Persaudaraan Setia Hati Terate (PSHT). This style is based on the teaching of Bpk. Hardjo Oetomo, a respected silat guru and a national hero of Indonesia. Since then, I had been teaching silat in East Java, especially in Magetan and Surabaya.
