Welcome to the Boulder-based branch of Inti Ombak Pencak Silat (aka Inner Wave Pencak Silat, aka IOPS). Serving the greater Denver-Boulder area, we welcome students of all levels and backgrounds to study our unique martial art.
At Boulder Silat we teach both the traditional and competitive sport sides of Pencak Silat. Our traditional curriculum includes a wide body of material that spans self-defense, forms, breathing/yoga-like exercises, knife and weapons awareness, traditional medicine and more.
Sport silat encompasses the multiple events and categories specified by the International Pencak Silat Federation (PERSILAT) which include sparring, standardized forms performances, pair choreography and more.
Take a look around the site to learn more about silat and the Inner Wave approach to teaching. If you have questions about classes or training, please send us a message through the contact page.
