Peace and respect to you!
Welcome to the Open Circle Academy. We are a school of martial arts focused on the warrior traditions of Southeast Asia, specifically West Java and West Sumatra, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

Harimau Stance

Our training focuses on the fundamentals and as such we practice our jurus, dasar and stances 10,000 times each to gain a mastery of the basics. We make our training as realistic as possible while staying safe and healthy. We attempt to optimize our skills for the modern world. As such we concentrate on the practical aspects of personal self defense in a dark parking lot or on a subway while still giving attention to the artistry of the arts.

The styles we train are Pencak Silat Gerakan Suci (pen'chawk see'lawt g'rawk'awn soo' chi), Pencak Silat Mande Muda, Silat Kuntau Tekpi, and Pukulan Pencak Silat PDT Bukti Negara.

Our philosophy and ethical inheritance comes directly from Sufi spiritual practices and the discipline of Spiritual Chivalry from the Qadiri-Rifai Sufi Tariqa.

All people of good will are welcome to visit, view classes and join if they have the interest.
