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."

Bapak's New Video Series!
Uncle has a a new video series of his kuntao silat training coming out. Some of my students have already placed an order, and my order will be made soon.
Willem de Thouars, known to his friends and students as “Uncle Bill”, is one of the world’s greatest living martial arts masters. Born in East Java in 1936, he has trained almost continuously in internal and external martial arts– Chinese, Indonesian, and Western–for more than 70 years.
Old Hand Kuntao Training introduces the methods by which Uncle Bill built a foundation of rooting, functional strength, mobility and explosive power that lasts a lifetime. Many of these training methods are virtually unknown today, not only in the West but in Asia as well.
Sections in this incredible 2-hour DVD, culled from more than 25 years of footage of Uncle’s Classes, seminars, and “closed door” sessions, include:
- Horse Stance Training (the “old school” way)
- Rocks, Trees and other Equipment Training
- 2-Person Power Exercises
- Rooting in Static Positions and in Motion
- Body Conditioning
- Mobility Training
and much more….
This is the first in a 12-DVD Series, WILLEM DE THOUARS: THE MASTER TAPES, to be released by Mastodon Productions, one per month, over the next year.
(NOTE: Unlike other DVD’s available, the Mastodon Productions series has the full authorization of Uncle Bill and 50% of profits from the series go directly to him.)
PRICE: $65 PLUS S+H
