The Silat SFI Fighting School founded by M. Eros Garberoglio, was created with the aim of spreading and promoting the Philippines-Indonesian martial arts.
Giving to all the fans, the possibility of being able to take a path of growth and training in the martial arts.
S.F.I. Fighting originates from the internal martial arts of the Satria who were the Shamanic warriors of Southeast Asia.
It’s an “Asian style” Martial combat system, which blends different styles of the Philippines and Indonesia, keeping the traditional part unchanged.
The SFI system develops more combat capacity in the medium and short distance and the ability to “stick” to the opponent.
Traditional styles from which the SFI system originates are:
Satia Hati Style
The fundamental principles on which the method is based on are:
The method of training and learning, is developed in 4 specific sectors that have a strong focus on the complete and balanced growth of the practitioner.

FROM WEAPONS TO EMPTY HANDS
The learning path of the Martial Art is divided into two primary groups, that embrace all the styles
Path from Empty hands to armed hands
Path from the armed hands to the Empty hands
In the first path the student learns the principles of art, first with Empty hands and then brings them back to armed ones, this means that when he uses the weapons, he will have the frequency, rhythm and fluidity of his hands.
While in the second path, the student learns the principles of art first using the weapons and then brings them back to the empty hands, this means that when working with empty hands, it will have the frequency, the rhythm and the fluidity of the weapons.
Each weapon (short sticks, long stick, machete, etc ...) has its own frequency, which allows the student to develop the rhythm and fluidity necessary to use the weapon itself.
In the SFI the second path is used, the one from the weapons to the bare hands and the main weapon used is the machete, as it develops the frequency suitable to apply the fundamental principles on which the system is based on.
Our Training Paths can be organized on groups or privately and last 4 years.
The main headquarter for training is Turin.
