Study Satria Fighting Arts body conditioning and Esoteric teachings with Steven Benitez.


Satria Fighting Arts (Pencak Silat) has been passed down by Sat Guru Ma Prem to her student, Steven Benitez. While there are many Pencak Silat systems all over South-East Asia, this particular style comes from the Royal Palaces of ancient Nusantara (Indonesia). It was practiced by the Kshatriyas (warriors), who were protectors of the Royal Palaces and of the Priests who carried the Sacred Texts and the Dharma. However, if you were a student of Guru Ma, as Steven was, you would not only learn Pencak Silat, but you also had to learn the Sacred Texts, Therapy and Healing, Meditation, and the Esoterics.

In this course, you will be introduced to some of the basics of the Satria Fighting Arts, which includes aspects of SFA Conditioning to help develop and prepare the body for some of the motion and movements of the SFA—enabling you to better understand and embody the movements for functionality when applying techniques and applications for self-defense. This course includes six conditioning lessons (out of 40 classes of a complete SFA Conditioning Course), two videos from our SFA seminars aimed to help you to see and sense the correlation of the postures, the motion and movement of the SFA, and how to apply them in basic self-defense. These conditioning lessons will also help you develop an excellent foundational ‘strength’ base, no matter what martial art or sports discipline you do. In addition, you will learn how to train on the ground using your own body weight and working with natural body mechanics, a fundamental principle in the SFA.

Also included in this course is an introduction to the Esoterics. This course consists of the first four lessons of our Kejawen Esoteric Course. The esoteric aspect of the SFA is a massive part as it carries the “soul” of the art, providing the practitioner a deeper understanding of Numerology, Life, and Nature works, and they apply in our lives; knowing the difference between the true ‘Self’ and the false ‘self’ and how Karma works; understanding times and seasons, the Universal Laws and understanding how to work with them, etc. These lessons will provide you with a good understanding of life and how energies work, which you can immediately apply in your life. In addition, you will receive practical lessons to work with, enabling you to activate a more empowering life. Finally, you will learn the principles of living a fruitful, peaceful, and harmonious lifestyle.

High level instuction delivered with clarity!

I orignally enrolled in this course to study Silat body conditioning, but Iended up rceiving something more precious from the lectures on Esoterics. Steven's ability to explain esoteric concepts has ultimately benefited my training and life in many ways. I'm grateful to have discovered this website and this course, and I highly reccomend it. Thank you Martial Man and Guru Steven for your work.
