June, 2008

Bapak Waleed's students in the Midwest United States were thrilled this month when they learned that he would be returning to the region for a while to teach. Several special sessions were held at the Body-Mind-Spirit Wellness Center in Ann Arbor, MI.

This wellness center is unique in that it was founded on the principles of Silat Traditionale as taught by Bapak Waleed. Consistently for decades now, Bapak has taught the importance of reaching out into community and providing services for those in need. This nonprofit center caters to the community by offering a place where connections can be made between those with health and wellness skills, knowledge, and experience can offer benefit to those who are in need or simply looking to learn.

The special sessions offered by Bapak Waleed this month were indeed special. "No two classes are ever the same." Bapak shared with students various elements Silat Traditionale, including practical self-defense and cultural dance. Everyone was so excited to take part, and afterward all stayed for tea as Bapak shared with everyone updates from his recent travels throughout Indonesia, South East Asia, and the rest of the world.
