Ernest De Vries (Uncle Ventje) taught Serak to his nephews, Paul & Victor De Thouars in Thailand, after they left Indonesia, and before the De Thouars family relocated to Hollland. This October Maha Guru Horacio Rodriquez will be again teaching Pukulan Pentjak Silat Serak in Thailand. Horacio is the inheritor of Pukulan Pentjak Silat Serak℠under the lineage of Maha Guru Pak Victor De Thouars, and he is the Chief Instructor of the VDT Academy in Bellflower, California, USA. Maha Guru Horacio is one of very few people to have completed the entire curriculum of this unique system of combat.

Accepting student applications

A training group under the direction and supervision of VDT Academy and Maha Guru Horacio Rodriguez is being formed in Chiang Mai and we are now accepting applications from potential students who wish to train in the devastating martial art of Pentjak Silat Serak.  We will not train anyone whom we feel might misuse the information and skills that are developed during the course of instruction. However, if you are a person of good intent who seeks to learn how to protect yourself, with world-class training that will prepare you with the skills to protect your family and loved ones then the Serak family warmly welcomes you to become our brother or sister in following the warrior’s creed:

Wherever I go, everyone is a little bit safer because I am there. Wherever I am, anyone in need has a friend. Whenever I return home, everyone is happy I am there. “It’s a better life!” – by Robert L. Humphrey.

For more information use our contact form to send a message. Our training environment will be friendly, welcoming, supportive and joyful, without any drama, posturing or machismo. Serak is for EVERYONE: male, female, tall, short, big, little, strong, weak, young, old, able-bodied and people with disabilities or injuries. You do not have to be an athlete to train and your training will stay with you until you are very old. A Serak person who has to use a cane or a walking frame, is a martial artist who always has her customized weapon in her hand 🙂
