Pak (instructor) Adam Kripke will introduce you to Silat Tuo, an ancient 1500 year old Indonesian martial art practiced for both its self-defense applications as well as its benefits to one's mind, body, and spirit. Students are guided through a comprehensive system of full-body movement exercises in conjunction with specific breathing, and meditation methodology. Benefits of the art include improved sensitivity, awareness, mindfulness, stress & anxiety reduction, balance, flexibility, fine motor skills, muscle tone, as well as rehabilitation and injury prevention.
This is an introduction to the art focusing on the health and spiritual benefits and movements instead of the martial art applications. "Meditation in Motion" is also beneficial for individuals with interests in Dance, Yoga, Aikido, Chi-Gung, Tai Chi, etc; however the movements are drawn from the martial art of Silat Tuo. (All skill and ability levels are welcome, recommended age 10+). Second Mondays of each month.
