The brotherhood of martial arts Perisai Diri (shield for ourselves),

better known as Silat Perisai Diri, was established in Sura-

baya, Indonesia on July 2nd, 1955. The founder is RMS

Dirdjoatmodjo, who is better known as Pak Dirdjo.

 

The organization committee is centralized in Surabaya 

and the board members exist in all over Indonesia. Through 

out Indonesia, Silat Perisai Diri exists in big cities such as Bali,

Lombok, Jakarta, Yogyakarta, Bandung, and almost all towns in 

Java.

 

 

So far, Perisai Diri has been spread out overseas. It exists in Asia, Australia, Europe and America. 

Countries such as Australia, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Germany, United State, Switzerland 

and Japan are registered as countries where Perisai Diri training exists.

 

In Australia, Silat  Perisai Diri  grows  around  South East.  The central  organization is located 

in Brisbane with more than 6 classes opened. Other cities such as Goldcoast , Sydney, Perth, 

Cairns and Toowoomba has also had training classes for Silat Perisai Diri.

 

Since Perisai Diri is one of Indonesian martial arts, it is automatically be part of World united of 

Silat Organization,  which is  known as Persilat.  Our delegation in London, Australia  and Japan 

have become Persilat committee since it was established.

 

In the end, the organization is trying to build a brotherhood between its members all over the world 

and introducing a unique Indonesian martial arts: Silat Perisai Diri. However, it is not only introducing, 

but also offering to learn effective martial arts without having an injury.
