the Practice

The White Crane Silat system is a Chinese-Indonesian martial art that harmonizes the body to improve health and fitness.  We use flowing, Nature inspired movements which integrate barefoot sliding steps, floor work, rolling, breathing, repetition, and partner exercises to cultivate balance, flexibility, strength, relaxation, grounding, timing, awareness, memory, confidence, feeling and intuition.

Persatuan Gerak Badan, the name of our school, means Unification Body Movement. Our intention in training is harmonization of body, mind and spirit. Practice is sometimes meditative, sometimes strenuous; acrobatics, falling, and throwing practice are included for able-bodied students.

White Crane Silat is for everyone.  Active practitioners range from 7 to 70s. All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. Classes are tailored to the needs and abilities of participants.

Wear loose white t-shirt and pants to class.  Come prepared to sweat, and bring a sweater. Contact for more information.
