We are offering these trainings as a begining to preserve our Art of Poekoelan Tjimindie.

These trainings are not specifically for we of the past. They are to continue to share the art with the new generations coming behind us as the number of our predecessors begin to  decline. All are welcome. Those from the 1950's the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's and now. Do come.

This and other trainings to come are being given in the spirit of goodwill.

Attendees are expected to bring that attitude, share that attitude and be a part of that attitude.

And I can't wait to see you all there!

GREYBEARDS CONFERENCE (Everybody Welcome)

Posted by Fans of Wetzel Martial Arts on June 25, 2014 at 10:35 AM Comments comments (0)

Fans of Wetzel Martial Arts Website has been notified that for the past few months a number of the schools of the Wetzel System have been getting together to put together a unified system of Willy Wetzels art as it was taught by him. This is a difficult task since he, like all Teachers, passed through different phases in Teaching. How and what was taught in 1956 was different than how he taught in 1970.


In The Past Years we have lost some great Martial Artists in our Poekoelan Line of Pentjak Silat. Each loss is like a petal from one of our symbols, the Rose. The students from those days continue to get older. Many have become seriously ill. Beyond the tradgedy of each of these individuals suffering, each petal that falls from the Rose takes with it experience and knowledge.  Each individual has had their own experience in the process of learning Poekoelan.


Let's let future generations enjoy this Self Defense Art as we did.


An old wise saying, "As long as the ties that bind us together are stronger than those that will bring us apart, all will be well."

Please contact Ken Lucas if you are interested in being a part of this endeavor.
