This blog is a collection of thoughts, descriptions of training and strange typing of a Teacher/ Practitioner in the Indonesian and Chinese martial art of Kuntao Silat de Thouars as learned from Bapak Willem de Thouars, or as I and his other inner circle students affectionately refer to him, "Uncle Bill."

Pentjak (Pencak) Silat Pamur / Pengasinan Jalan Enam
This series of movements lookssimilar to the pentjak silat pamur djurus that Uncle showed me many years ago although there are some definite differences. Pamur is from the island of Madura and what I was shown was a series of blade movements that was also trained empty-handed. Now, I see something that uses hand transitions similar what I learned at the time that I haven't seen since except in a couple other silat arts. The clip is entitled "Pengasinan Jalan Enam" and is labeled as being from the area of Jakarta, not the island of Madura. I hope you enjoy it.
