Welcome to PNW Silat, the only group in the Pacific Northwest to offer Bukti Negara – The Unified Art.
We’re a group of passionate individuals with a love of Silat as given to us by the Naga Kuning Institute. We specifically offer training in the style of Bukti Negara, which was developed by the late Pendekar Paul de Thouars and we have been fortunate enough to train under Walter van den Broeke.
Bukti Negara is a specific style of Silat, Indonesian Martial Arts, with a focus on close quarter combat. This is a highly advanced Dutch-Indonesian fighting system based on the following principles:
- Body mechanics
- Human physiology
We have a very specific curriculum that we’re open to sharing with anyone that is interested. If you’re interested please feel free to reach out to discuss training with us.
We would like to make it known that this training group is not associated with the PDT Academy based out of Burbank, CA. This group is connected with Naga Kuning Institute only and we claim no association with PDT Academy.
