Strassbourg France, March 7/8, 2020
On March 7th and 8th, we invited Walter Van Den Broeke to AKSVB – Association Kung Fu Shaolin VuBa – to supervise a Pukulan Pentjak Silat Bukti Negara seminar in Strasbourg, France. The seminar took place in the heart of Strasbourg.
For the first time, the students discovered the efficiency of this martial art. With kindness and humor, Walter van den Broeke passed on some of the basic principles of Bukti Negara. For example, how to use basic footwork, one of the most important basics of Pukulan.
He insisted on how to walk as a normal person, how to cut the line and how to launch a hit and develop power at short distances. A highlight on « no matter what his weight or size is – towards your opponent- you can deliver a hard punch to hit your opponent, to knock him down » made the
students understand that anyone can practice Pukulan Pentjak Silat Bukti Negara in an efficient way, using body mechanics. The key is now to practice, practice and even more practice to engrave the body mechanics in our bodies, so that we become good enough to apply those on any opponent.
