I have been a member here for some time now so i think it's time for me to make a post like this. My real name is Ludwig im a 35 year old dad from the Netherlands. My martial arts background started when i was 15 with Shaolin Kempo and Kickboxing, from there i went to Pentjak Silat were i met my main teachers son Raymond Ingram. He introduced me in the system of Amerindo Pentjak Silat, i received a total of 9 years of instruction from Ray and his father Jim Ingram. I even had my own school in the end. I lost connection with the Ingrams, and i moved on to Eskrima wich i practiced for 1-1.5 years privately. In the meanwhile i was practicing Krav Maga wich i trained for a total of 2 years. When my son was born i was training mainly on my own at home. I tried so many martial arts. Now im in the process to condens my own knowledge and put it in my own system wich i called Ilmu Buka BelaDiri (Open Knowlegde SelfDefense), wich im teaching and testing with a friend of mine.
