Group shot from 2008 Silat Camp at Lost LakePersaudaraan is the Indonesian word for brotherhood.  My study of Pencak Silat would not be possible without the support and guidance of my teachers and fellow students.

At various points in my life I have studied with these talented silat players.  If you have an interest in martial arts, and are fortunate enough to live close to any of them I would definitely look them up.
