Our style Pukulan is a martial art, which means that all three disciplines are performed, namely: the sports (ola raga), the fight (bella diri) and the art combined with the spiritual forms (seni budaja). By doing so we learn the complete fight, however this also takes a lot of time before mastering the core parts. That is the reason the saying goes: “You can only become a master by training steadily”.

People who practice Pencak Silat or Pukulan are called Persilats and the teacher is called Pendekar and should be adressed with Soehoe(official), Mas or Pa.

Trainer: René Cornelissen
Sports commissioner: Vriti Kalia


We train about 4 hours a week; Mondays from 9 till 11 pm in the dojo and Wednesdays from 8:30 till 10:30 pm in ‘Sportzaal 4’. During the trainings all fields of training are treated: techniques, tactics, condition and fighting spirit.


In every training the basic techniques are practiced: punches, kicks, defences, forms, breaking your fall. In contrast to many other styles, our forms are also required to be used during sparring and real fighting situations. Next to the previous mentioned techniques, we also practice one-step defences and combinations. To get used to all the techniques we end most of our trainings with sparring sessions to learn to utilise what you have learned. Because knowing a technique doesn’t mean you’re able to use the actual technique in real situations, which is our main goal.



Pukulan is derived from the Indonesian word Pukul, which means to hit, and in context it means the fight. At the core Pukulan is a fight and this is also how one should practice this sport. To be able to compete in contests, we have however also added the sports aspect. In the fighting discipline (for the one who wants to) will still be trained in the basics. However, real fighting will be practiced at higher levels. Moreover, we have a very social group and the trainings are very friendly and disciplined. It is therefore also accessible for women.


In Pencak Silat normally sashes are used with a different order of colours. However, our colour order is set equal to colours of Karate. This is probably due to the occupation of Japan during the second world war. The sash we wear is originated from the ‘selendang’ (hip belt), which is worn by the Indonesian people.


The exams are to be taken very seriously and are therefore also difficult or strict. A grade is not given as a present by our teacher and therefore if one succeeds his or her exam, one can be proud of this achievement.

The sports bond

We’re connected to the IBF (International Budo Federation). The IBF organises yearly different national and international matches, going from semi-contact to full contact. These matches are organised very good.


Most of our techniques have a Dutch name, except a few which are still in Indonesian. During the trainings we speak most often English or Dutch depending on the tongue of the participants present.


Everyone is welcome to join a training. Just make sure you wear comfortable clothes. The training times are Monday from 9 pm till 11 pm in the dojo and Wednesdays from 7 till 9 pm in ‘Sportzaal 3’.
