This week, the Pencak Silat class continued to review and practice the Harimau (Tiger form) subsystem.
Class was focused primarily on building speed and cultivating a natural and automatic reaction when attacked. Our conditioning involved responding to a timed starter buzzer; countering an attacker and setting up for a takedown within a small window of time.
