Open Policy & Disclaimer

Silat Suffian Bela Diri – International Training Groups ‘OPEN POLICY’ expects people to individually express themselves and will not tolerate any one student or instructor suppressing knowledge in regards to our martial arts training regardless of style or any one’s individual personality and any way or form.

Like any applied knowledge people tend to understand things in their own way, through their studies and experience. We cannot force our ideas on them, let people find their own truths.

Our aim is for religious and cultural tolerance between different nationalities. We do not welcome or encourage anti-social behaviours and those learning our knowledge with negative intentions. All Representatives and Representative Candidates including myself has the moral responsibility to refuse these individuals or group of individuals. But if you are a friendly person who has thirst for knowledge and the intention to contribute to your family and community then our doors are always open for you.

We are educators not dictators, but we do expect students and instructors alike to follow the SSBD’s : “Mission Statement”, “Purpose” and “Instructors Purpose”.

We only ask for a reasonable contribution in our part, but we do not treat our students as clients, we threat them as friends. We have to be honest, in todays world, to successfully promote any event especially worldwide events like SSBD seminars – travel expenses, gym rental, meal expenses, initiatives for organizers, living expenses, etc, have to be considered. No money should come out of anyones pocket which could cause unnecessary distress to ourselves and our families in the future.

Remember, we are keepers of a legacy, we have to promote and spread it wisely.
