Focus is on brotherhood, training, and no-nonsense self-defense.  

There are no sport applications for Silat or KunTao 

Training with good people is a lot of fun.

    Guru Derric is an excellent teacher of American KunTao Silat. His method of teaching is detailed, practical, and fluid with his passion and devotion to the martial art always evident. His commitment to American Kuntao Silat as a lifestyle is a core part of his training and a principle that he lives by. This approach and how he integrates it into our modern lifestyle, makes the training truly outstanding.

    I thought I had a good understanding of the martial arts until I met Guru Derric. American Kuntao Silat changed my whole perspective on what it means to be a martial artist. American Kuntao Silat is a martial arts lifestyle through consistent practice gives the practitioner tools to deal with any situation they may encounter on the street. Guru Derric leads a dynamic class that focuses on hard work and repetition. He has mastered transmitting the principles of a traditional martial art and making them applicable to a modern day world.

    Guru Derric is a great guy with very, very good skill and an excellent teacher. His knowledge is broad and deep and his willingness to share is as well. I personally would highly recommend Guru Derric as an instructor, training partner and friend.
