Once again some people think they can take something they have not earned. Whether it 's Money, Fame, Fortune. They think just because they want something they can take it. To us we believe in Adat an Hormat. What is more Precious than your family name which has been passed down to you?...You protect and Honor it, try not to disgrace it. This is what we try to do with our Name... We are the International Pentjak/Pencak Silat Federation, Pentjak/Pencak Silat USA. It has been so from 1990 to present day. You will not take our name from us.
