The Bukti negara era
Kuno Silat Semangat Baru means ancient art and a new spirit. Kuno Silat used to be called Bukti Negara and was well known by Silat aficionados in the United States and abroad.
The name change represents the new spirit and openness in teaching and sharing the art while actively creating a new generation of strong Silat players.
