He began his lifelong relationship with martial arts in 1984 when he enrolled in a Silat class at his elementary school. Shortly after, he began studying Madurese Silat under the tutelage of his uncle. As he entered his teens, Daniel also studied Mataram/Central Javanese Silat under the guidance of his great grandfather in Yogyakarta. By 1991, he was teaching Pencak Silat throughout many parts of Indonesia. \r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThrough these experiences, he eventually organized his learnings into his own style called Inti Ombak Pencak Silat, which translates as Inner Wave Pencak Silat. In 2000 he moved to the United States, and he has been actively sharing his unique background in Pencak Silat ever since. \r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThis IOPS curriculum is a demonstration of the principles and phases taught within their system, acting to provoke thoughts in the Silat player and as an overview for outside artists looking to expand their knowledge. \r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eMotion and Principles are the prime focus in IOPS, as a student is generally not expected to recite a memorized technique but rather generate motion true to their level and the phases or principles selected. \r\n\r\n####PENCAK SILAT\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003e\"Silat\" is an umbrella term used to describe the indigenous martial arts from regions now encompassed by modern-day Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei extending as far as Thailand, Vietnam and the southern Philippines. This diversity in culture and geography has given rise to hundreds, if not thousands of styles of Silat. While there are numerous differences between these styles, Silat is typically characterized as a hybrid art that employs strikes, joint manipulation, ground maneuvers and throws. \r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eBecause of its evolution in bladed societies, many Silat styles place heavy emphasis on defense against bladed weapons such as knives, swords, sickles and machetes. It is often said that, “without the knife, there is no Silat;” however this does not mean that Silat is solely a weapons-based art. In most systems, practitioners strive to be equally adept in empty-handed and armed combat. \r\n\r\n####INTI OMBAK\r\n\u003cp\u003eInti Ombak Pencak Silat (abbreviated: IOPS, English: Inner Wave Pencak Silat) is a comprehensive martial arts system that combines Silat descended from the Mataram Kingdom (modern day Central Java) and the Pencak from the island known as Madura.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eHailing from the inland kratons (sultan’s palaces) of Central Java, Mataram Silat is generally characterized by its staccato rhythm, extensive footwork patterns (langkah), and variety of hand motion (strikes, blocks, manipulations). It is often described as long (panjang), strong (kuat), firm (tegas), and fast (cepat) - a hit and run style of fighting.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eConversely, Madurese Silat evolved from the daily practices of a society centered on sailing, fishing and cattle herding. This grounded nature is reflected in Madurese Silat’s use of smooth, flowing motion, deep, wide stances, and use of wave-like transitions between high and low positions.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eInstruction in IOPS strives to ingrain the student with kaedah --a general framework for facing any situation.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eCultivation of kaedah is done across four phases: 1) Basic Phase, 2) Animal Phase, 3) Element Phase, and 4) Human Phase with each phase focusing on upper body development and lower body development. These phases blend various aspects of the Mataram and Madura Silat until all have fused seamlessly in the human phase.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThe animal phase consists of seven animals: crane, tiger, dragon, mantis, monkey, pangolin, and snake.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThe element phase is comprised of the four classic elements: wind, earth, water, and fire.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eLastly, the human phase features five human archetypes: fisherman, drunkard, fair maiden, nanny and monk.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eThe core of IOPS consists of six principles: 1) push-pull, 2) circling, 3) leverage, 4) folding, 5) borrowing balance, and 6) shifting center. Any given application can be decomposed into sequences and combinations of these seven principles.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003eSpecifying a phase adds an additional flavor to an application. For example a technique finishing with an armbar (leverage) will take on different characteristics if performed as a tiger, as fire or as a fair maiden.\r\n\r\n\u003cp\u003e*The Martial Codex would like to thank Guru Daniel Prasetya and the IOPS team for their enormous effort and for placing faith in this project at its earliest days.
