PENCAK SILAT FESTIVAL - Indonesian Martial Arts on Saturday 15th September 2018
This event is organized by the Indonesian Embassy in London and the Pencak Silat Federation UK, the national body for silat in the UK.
The Festival brings together silat schools to showcase unique traditional silat styles from different regions of Indonesia, as well as sports silat. Watch and learn from qualified teachers and instructors from 5 silat schools: Panglipur, Kuntao Matjan, Gerak Ilham, Silek Harimau Minangkabau, and Silat Setia Hati Terate, and join in workshops to learn skills first hand.
The Festival features a very special guest, Kang Cecep Arif Rahman, a renowned Master of Silat Panglipur, whose appearances in The Raid 2 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens have raised awareness of Pencak Silat around the world. In his special appearance, Kang Cecep will demonstrate his art and conduct a workshop in Silat Panglipur. Listen to his life journey during the talkshow session, from starting as a student of silat to becoming a martial arts movie star.
Whether you have just heard about silat, or come from a martial arts background, do not miss this golden opportunity to learn more about the art of Pencak Silat. Traditional Indonesian food will be sold at venue so come along with the whole family!
