Silat, as a word, is rarely used alone in its countries of origin. Normally it is used as an identifier of a combat system. Penjak Silat, Bersilat, Kuntao Silat, Langka Silat Maphilindo Silat, etc.

Two methods of Silat can be found at the Academy. The first is the Kuntao Silat method handed down from Willem de Thouars. Randall Goodwin, a Guro Tuan in Kuntao Silat under Maha Guro de Thouars teaches classes twice a week at the Academy. Randall has also been certified in Serak Silat by Pendekar Paul de Thouars. This method is a blend of Silat and KunTao systems that Willem de Thouars learned in Indonesia in his youth.

The other method is the Maphilindo Silat of Guro Dan Inosanto. Guro Inosanto developed this method by blending several systems of silat together from different sources. Some of those sourses are Bukti Negara Silat, Malaysian Bersilat, Filipino Silat Kuntao, Mande Muda Silat, Cimande Penjak Silat, and Harimau Silat.

Philip Gelinas becan studying Silat under Eddy Jafri in 1981 and Guro Inosanto in 1990. He now holds a 4th level in Maphilindo Silat under Guro Dan Inosanto.
