I have had many inquiries about training post-pandemic, so I thought it would be easiest to post my current class. I currently teach two separate arts; the first is Sera, a Pukulan Silat system. Our branch comes to us via Earnest (Ventje) De Vries and is currently more of a closed door, friends and family tradition. This means that whilst we have to pass on this art, we are just a little selective of the students we teach, nothing more. I personally use the name Sera to differentiate my branch from other branches so that outside people realise our branch is different.
The second art I teach is my own, KORA, which covers my over forty years of Vale Tudo (MMA) experience, Grappling, Sword & Dagger, full Contact Stick Fighting and Savate with a Basque flavour. This class is an open class that I teach both privately and publicly. Over the years, I have taught members of the public and helped a few A-listers. I teach in a private venue but have instructed outside schools to help out fellow instructors and their schools in the past.
Currently, I am the only active instructor, but we have two senior students in the KORA trainee instructors’ program.
From what I can see, our branch of Savate is fairly unique, and along with our sword art, I am dedicated to passing it on.
I post a small sample of our KORA training updates on my Instagram and YouTube channel for my students, which some non-students have found helpful.
