What to Expect

If Thailand has Muay Thai, then Indonesia has Pencak Silat. A full-body fighting form incorporating strikes, grappling and throwing in addition to weaponry; Pencak Silat was practiced not only for physical defense but also for psycological ends.

Pencak is the essence of training, the outward aspect of the art which a casual observer is permitted to witness as performance. Silat is the essence of combat and self-defense, the true fighting application of the techniques which are kept secret from outsiders and not divulged to students until the guru deems them ready. While other definitions exist, all agree that silat cannot exist without pencak, and pencak without silat skills is purposeless.

BAKTI NEGARA is a style of pencak silat from Bali. Firmly rooted in old Balinese Hinduism and philosophies of Indonesia, Bakti Negara literally means “devotion for the nation”. It is the most widely practiced martial art in Bali and the most well-known style of Balinese silat; to the point that the system is commonly referred as Pencak Bali or Kuntao Bali. Today, it is practiced in almost every town and village in Bali.

This package provides you the opportunity to get to know about a self-defense system according to Balinese philosophy of Tri Hita Karana and to have intensive training with 2 sessions each day. Skill should not be used as the tool of aggression, but as a way to develop and cultivate oneself. The training teaches four elements to train your cipta (thought), rasa (senses), and karsa (will) :

  1. Sport, developing the physical ability to practice the techniques through exercises for the benefit of maintaining physical health and athletic achievement.
  2. Martial, developing fighting ability.
  3. Art, practising to the point where fighting techniques are aesthetic as well as effective
  4. Mental and spirituality, aims to strengthen the ability to control oneself.

This package is suitable for all age, ideal for those who already mastered the basics of martial arts and willing to be trained intensively in Balinese pencak silat.
