Silat Perisai Diri is an Indonesian pencak silat martial art. We practise self-defence step-by-step in a safe and fun club environment, developing reflexes to redirect and avoid attacks, and not meeting force on force. Students learn various bird, animal and human forms.
After dasar (foundation level) training, weapons are incorporated with learned techniques. The core weapons are pisau (knife) for short-range, pedang (sword) for medium-range and thoya (staff) for long-range. Optional weapons can also be trained.
