"HAPPY NEW YEAR"
FROM ALL OF US AT
BUNGA CANTIK PENCAK SILAT CAMP
its finally the year..... 2013
Here is a picture of my brother Logan Twitchell (and  author Rocky Twitchell)  training in  Pencak Silat in the Sierra Buttes ,Sierra Nevada Mountain Range, CA.
We camped here and trained in Pencak Silat at our campsite for 3 days. We had great Mexican food the first night, Hamburgers on the 2nd night and finished the 3rd night with Steaks. Logan and I a great time sitting by the camp fire telling storys about our childhood,brothers, family and our time fighting in the boxing ring.Climbing the Butte was awesome !!! A direct ascension was impossible so we had to take the trails and follow guide posts.
 But as you can see the snow at the top of the mountain indicates COLD NIGHTS AND REALLY COLD MORNINGS. I almost froze to death each night !!!!! So next time we plan a trip here ,I'm going only when  there is NO SNOW on the peaks. LESSON LEARNED !!
( in the picture above we are standing at 6,000 ft elevation)
The Sierra Buttes is the mountian behind us in this picture.

 
 
This is the look out tower at the top. 8,591 ft elevation.

The Year 2013 will be a great year of Pencak Silat training and teaching !!!!

Thai Hang Le  teaches and owns her own martial arts school in Sacramento, CA
Thai Hang has traveled to Vietnam and trained with the founders of Vovinam and traveled to Germany teaching the art of Vovinam. Well traveled means well skilled !


Special Note :


In the world of martial arts I have meet some of the most amazing Instructors. But nothing amazes me more than women who spend a lifetime dedicated to studying/training  in martial arts and becoming just as good as any man in the martial arts! ( if not better ) I have never been taught nor agree that men are better in martial arts than women. Women bring balance to martial arts training and teaching. In fact 2 of my best Instructors are women (Black Belt, June Castro and Rita Suwanda.Women rarely bring the "ego" into a school and are sometimes better able to teach and train a student than a man.Women add many great things to the world of martial arts.  So many I cannot list here.Just a few facts I thought  I would share on 12-12 -12...women bring balance in the martial arts !! Believe it or not, like it or not, but its the truth !
