ISFA Annual Reports

Bapak Waleed has been working hard for decades to share with the world the beauty, benefits, and effectiveness of the movement arts of Silat Tuo, Seni Silat Haqq, and Silat Minangkabau as well as the other arts of Silat Tradisionale. In addition, he has educated countless students in the arts, history, and culture of the Minangkabau people.

On these pages we are attempting to chronicle these efforts, particularly the notable events that have taken place throughout the years. Please check this space often as we intend to include more historical events regurlarly.

Periodically, ISFA publishes an archive in book form that encompasses important activity over the prior year. These books are available for download in PDF to select members. Over time, the contents of those books will be available online as well.
