Learning under Grandmaster Soengkono, being inspired by His support team of long time attending students, has proven to be one the greatest things I’ve done in my life. There is a profound energy inside the Dojo, which calls me back time and time again… but more powerful of a pull to that place are the brilliant words and martial teachings of Grandmaster Soengkono. In him one sees a true Martial Artist in all senses of the word, but in fact he is even more than that. It is apparent after learning from Him that he does not only embody the archetype of Martial Artist and Warrior, but that he has even transcended such roles. It is a pleasure and honor to learn from such a person as Grandmaster Soengkono, in a traditional Dojo setting.
