A post concerning this topic was started inside a different thread, but I thought it deserved to stand on it's own. The people of Indonesia are suffering through horrible times right now. I am leaving for Bandung tonight (Sunday, May 28), and I am apprehensive about what I will find when I get there. These are a good, kind people, who are largely responsible for my martial education & have tolerated my sense of humor and stubborness as I have grown, as well as given me permission to spread the art to whomever I wish, however I wish. I would ask my brothers and sisters of Pencak Silat in the spirit of hormat to keep this nation in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you.
