Nederlands English


Silek Tuo literally means “old Silat”  and the style is seen as a base of pencak silat in general. It is one of the oldest styles and the original techniques has been preserved, this in comparisment to other (more modern) styles. Our focus is more on defence than on the (counter) attack. We pay specific attention on technique, instead just on brute force.

Our perguruan (school) is named Silek Tuo Pusako Minang, which stands for “old Silat as heritage of the Minangkabau people”. Our school is an original aliran (martial arts) and still enjoys a good relationship with our mother school in Bukittinggi, West Sumatra.
