Master O’ong Maryono
Indonesian Master O’ong Maryono (1953-2013) dedicated his entire life to pencak silat first as an athlete and national and international champion and later as a martial arts actor, international coach and official, and a researcher and innovator. He is the author of the seminal book “Pencak Silat in the Indonesian Archipelago” or in his Indonesian version “Pencak Silat Merentang waktu.
The O’ong Maryono Pencak Silat Awards is a small grant program that provides opportunities to research, document and publish about pencak silat, a rich, but still relatively unknown, Malay martial art. It is hoped that supported studies will contribute to preserve and promote pencak silat in all its aspects and diversity of styles and forms and to introduce it to new and wider audiences.
