    Really, how do you know someone is good or not just from a video? Or that you would never train with them?

    I would be very interested to hear your thoughts though on things you do not like about Indonesian arts.

    I will agree with you though that there are other videos of Stevan Plinck that are better. I have posted sine of those in the past.

    A few years back I was able to train for a weekend seminar with Mr. Plinck and his group at his property in Washington. I don't do Silat and have no idea of politics of those arts. Not my circus not my monkeys. His group was welcoming and trained well. Guru Plinck was open and very good with his instruction and is very skilled. I enjoyed the seminar and I would train again with him and his group if the opportunity arrived.
    Nice Clip Brian, thanks for sharing
    Regards

    I will say that I hate politics in the martial arts as well. I don't allow it in my organization and don't care for it anywhere else. Not my cup of tea.

    I do think that Maha Guru Stevan Plinck has very, very solid skills and represents his unique style well.

    I hope that's not include the indonesian lineage part, since i believe it was agreed to not be prolonged, yours is yours mine is mine.

    What I'm talking about not just sera', but generally several traditional systems here that had not have good organization.
    Back a decade ago, when the traditional silat community just being revived in Indonesia and internet booming just arrived, there were several statements made by non indonesian about indonesian silat that by their understanding was different that from what they received from their senior/teacher.
    Those thing/claim was not sitting well, that made some heated 'discussions' among people who believe theirs are the more legitimate line, etc.
    But thanks to the elderly in silat community, those thing was not developed further and just let thing went separated ways.

    Now, none whatsoever, I was misunderstanding the conversation.
    That was why I asked, if somehow the pancasera - deVries-deThouars sera lineage involved.
