You have the option of self practical knowledge about pentjak silat! Through a workshop with professional counselors to become initiated into the principles of pentjak silat.

You can choose from a short (45′) or long (90′) workshop. Short workshop remains very basic, long workshop brings to floor. Introvert (from inside to outside) and extrovert (from outside to inside) processes alternate. Experimented with slow motion and dynamic, with refinement (halus) and coarser movement (kasar). Work also plays a role in animal characters. Pentjak silat is largely inspired by examples from the plants and animals. Except that you have on the floor, you get examples presented by the teachers.
