There are literally hundreds of systems of Silat in Malaysia, the Phillipines & Indonesia. These fighting arts were designed for survival in real combat, not sport. Because of this, instructors have been very strict about who they pass these arts on to.
Maphilindo Silat was created by Guro Dan Inosanto to honor his instructors from the many systems of silat he has studied.
Guro RICK TUCCI is a 4th Level instructor in Maphilindo Silat under Guro Dan Inosanto. Guro Tucci is one of the select few in the U.S. certified by Guro Dan Inosanto to teach the art. Tucci is a Full Instructor in Pentjak Silat Bukti Negara under Pendekar Agung Paul de Thouars. He is also Guro in Mande Muda Pencak Silat under Pendekar Herman Suwanda.
