SEEK & DESTROY: Destructive Striking of Silat and Panantukan

The Destructive Empty-Hand Striking of Silat & Panantukan.

Join Guro Kurt Cornwell and Dr. Eric Greenberg for a one-day workshop on the various routes, methods, and natural body weapons of Bruneian Silat, Indonesian Silat, and Filipino Panantukan.

These methods will give you the tools to make every strike count, to incapacitate an opponent, and to target joints and other high-value areas of the body for maximum effect.

This event is public, recreational, and open to all experience levels. No prior martial art experience is required, but may prove helpful. Expect a fast pace in a safe, friendly, and relaxed atmosphere, with content from two of Metro Detroit’s most qualified instructors. This content will add something to the toolbox of any seasoned martial artist, and open up many doors and insights for the beginner.

Want to be Jason Bourne? John Wick? Ryan Reynolds? Don’t we all. But this will be cool, too. See you on the mat.
