Maha Guru Richard Crabbe de-Bordes returns for another Harimau Minangkabau/Pencak Macan Hitam Silat seminar this October 21st & 22nd.

Maha Guru de-Bordes began his martial arts journey in his home of France, later traveling to Spain, Holland, and Indonesia to follow his teacher Maha Guru Adityo Mataram Hanafi. After many years of training, Guru de-Bordes moved to London, England in the early 1980s to open the first Harimau Pencak Silat school in the UK.

He has continued to develop and adapt the Harimau Silat style focusing on self-defense aspects and incorporating aspects of other silat systems he has learned. Guru de-Bordes has taught and acted as an advisor to many special forces groups and police tactical teams. Currently, he resides in Ghana working as a security consultant to the president.
