Silat is growing! There are now three branches in Washington DC area. Our flagship branch in Bethesda, Maryland is headed by Silat masters Kak Wona Sumantri and Kak Richard Subaran. We have our original Asburn location headed by Kak Terra Kurnia and our newest branch in Sterling, Virginia at the Nur Center Loudoun is headed by Kak Abdul-Malik Ahmad. These three branches come from the same lineage of Al-Azhar Pencak Silat from Indonesia. Kak Wona has also studied under various other top Silat instructors such as Pak Rifai from Cimande Silat system as well as Harimau Singgalang (Buaya & Harimau) from Pak Sofyan Nadar. Kai Abdul-Malik has augmented his knowledge of Silat with certifications in sport Silat and other styles such as judo, Taekwondo, jujitsu, etc.
