Indonesian Fighting Fundamentals: The Brutal Arts Of The Archipelago

Indonesian Fighting Fundamentals: The Brutal Arts Of The Archipelago

by Bob Orlando




The fighting arts of Indonesia, a mix of pentjak silat and Chinese kuntao, were never meant for sport: they are brutal, unrelenting and designed to take the enemy out and punish him every step of the way. This unprecedented book by a long-time student of Dutch-Indonesian Master Willem de Thouars shows you why.
