    Anyone know of any Pencak Silat teachers in or around the New York City/NJ area? I know of a Perisai Diri (Silat PD) & Poekoelan school, but that is not Pencak Silat. Any help would be appreciated.....

    Salam John;

    Perisai Diri is very much silat. I don't really know too much about the Poekoelan schools, but as I understand it, most of them are kuntao / silat. Not strictly Chinese and not strictly silat. Perisai Diri as headed by Yana is very silat. Guru Yana has many years of silat, to include many other systems of silat.

    Did you happen to find a school in NYC? I am interested in learning Silat myself.

    Yeah jscott, if you find a school post it. I'll probably be in NYC next summer and need to know a place to continue my training.
