Pukulan Cimande Kombinasi (PCK) is a style of Indonesian Pencak Silat developed and taught by Guru Besar Jerry Jacobs. Pencak Silat is a general term used to describe martial arts that come from the island nation of Indonesia. PCK encompasses all 8 Areas of traditional Pencak Silat and can be roughly translated as:
Pukulan Cimande Kombinasi is a full-range martial art composed of several styles of Pencak Silat including (Cimande, Sera, Cikalong, Sabandar, Kari/Madi and Betawi Silat). It includes the use of several edged and impact weapons, fighting while in a grounded position, grappling and multiple opponents training. The style of fighting is distinguished by free flowing, writhing movements, off-timing, integrated footwork and draw stance strategies. It is also characterized by a close fighting position and fast continuous hitting. The strategy is to close with the opponent such that it is possible to sweep them to the ground in a violent way, then follow this attack with a barrage of continuous flowing strikes or some kind of finishing technique. There is heavy emphasis on attacking the limbs of the opponent, and delivering fast disorienting strikes to the face, followed by more substantial strikes to the head and body.
The style is organized around the use of five primary animal techniques- Monkey, Tiger, Snake, Crane, Dragon and the 18 Principles of Combat.
The Monkey (Monyet, Kera) portion of the style uses slaps, grabs, punches and elbows, changing position from high to low.
The Tiger (Pamacan) utilizes a very low stance, and seeks to smash the opponents limbs and drag him down to continue the fight on the ground. The tiger also fights in a full supine (Harimau) position where the practitioner is lying fully on the ground.
