Our Blended Approach to Martial Arts
Muay Thai is a form of hard martial art practiced in large parts of the world, including Thailand and other Southeast Asian countries. The art is similar to others in Southeast Asia such as: Pradal Serey in Cambodia, Lethwei in Myanmar, Tomoi in Malaysia, and Lao boxing in Laos. Muay Thai has a long history in Thailand and is the country’s national sport.
Maphilindo Silat is the term given to describe Guro Dan Inosanto’s personal combat system. It was designed and developed in the early eighties to honour and give recognition to the many Silat instructors that Guro Dan had the honour & privilege of training under. The word Maphilindo itself can be broken down as: Ma – meaning Malaysian, Phil – meaning Philippines & Indo – meaning Indonesian. These are the three main influences that Guro Dan used to develop this incredible art.
