Silat is a collective word for a class of indigenous martial arts from the
geo-cultural area of Southeast Asia, more precisely in the Indonesian Archipelago, a region known locally as
Nusantara. It is traditionally practiced in Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, portions of the
Philippines, the southern part of Thailand and central part of Vietnam. There are hundreds of different
styles (aliran) and schools (perguruan) but they tend to focus either on strikes, joint manipulation,
weaponry, or some combination thereof.
Our 2021 Camp has not been confirmed due to Covid-19, however SSBD Texas is planning to host a multi day camp in August. This camp could also receive "guest" instruction from Maul Mornie via Zoom. We will be in a full gym with two massive HD projector screens and surround sound audio system. The exact dates, once confirmed, will be announced later but the tentative dates are August 14th-15th.
Our classes and workshops are conducted with strict adherence to the guidelines and format established by Maul Mornie for the Licensed Group Leaders within Silat Suffian Americas. You may see videos of his training at MAUL565 on YouTube. These classes and workshops are held throughout the year by Hill Country Karate. Please check our events page for upcoming events.
