“Johnny Silmon is one of the pioneers of Indonesian martial arts in Europe. A superb individual his knowledge of the tradition is deep and wide. Not only a great teacher and Martial artist he’s also a great human being. Friendly, inclusive, and open to the new. Like a true warrior his strength isn’t on show but there when it’s needed. A great guy I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

“Johnny Silmon is a man of exceptional knowledge and talent.  I have shared in three of his many trips to Indonesia and experienced first hand his knowledge of many different silat styles and seen the respect he has earned in the homeland of Indonesian martial arts. He is generous and open-hearted, a man of great principle and fun to be with.  Knowledge of this kind is hard earned.  If you get the chance to train with Johnny or learn from him in other ways – take it!

Bob Sykes – Founder / Editor of M.A.I Magazine


“An accomplished martial artist and a true scholar of Silat are just two phrases that one could use to describe a person that I have been blessed to know on many levels.”
