“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!
