About Me

I am the London representative and instructor of Silat Buka Lingkaran (also known as SBL); a beautiful and effective martial arts influenced by it’s roots in Indonesia.

With over 10 years of teaching, my experiences have allowed me to work with people from a variety of backgrounds as well as travelling internationally to deliver seminars in France & Germany.

SBL has an holistic approach to the martial arts, covering all aspects of self-defence. The art’s different features range from ground to upright fighting, grappling, weapons, and dynamic striking.

The art has a softer side called Kembangan (the Flower Dance) which is a moving meditation done in a relaxed and slow manner to help improve balance, fluidity and rhythm, and to enhance concentration, focus, and levels of awareness.
