Pencak Silat T-shirts -- As a group, Pencak Silat Pertempuran ( is dedicated to the study and pursuit of excellence in Indonesian martial arts as well as the spreading of this knowledge through the use of traditional methods (teaching and demonstrations) and non-traditional methods such as the development of various promotional items.

In order to increase the general awareness of this relatively little known martial art here in the U.S., the Pencak Silat Pertempuran group of Saint Cloud, Florida has created a new line of promotional items that are humorous and a bit edgy for the purpose of letting those who are unaware of pencak silat and the cultural diversity it represents, know about this family of martial arts.

The group hopes that the new line of promotional items will, not only increase the general awareness of pencak silat within immediate surrounding area of Central Florida, but that it will also encourage other teachers to approach the task similarly in a concerted effort to raise awareness of pencak silat around the U.S. The benefit of increasing awareness of this diverse and robust martial art is of benefit to the wider audience that will be able to participate in this unique and often over-looked martial art.
