Jeroen Heindijk - Pentjak Silat & Tree Wisdom In The City

Jeroen’s passion is trees and martial arts. He considers trees as warriors—mastering in positioning and moving beautifully with the seasons and the wind. The stability, walk, and movement of these warriors fascinate Jeroen. For those who consciously move, the choices and possibilities are endless. Through his practice, Jeroen now has a grasp on these endless possibilities. He believes that with discipline and some structure, we can find creativity together. 

As Jeroen has had many teachers in his life, he believes that teaching is a two-way relationship: he considers his students also as his teachers: “teaching is working together”

Jeroen likes the classical style of Pentjak Silat the most, which is also his great support and a source of inspiration and healing. He learned traditional techniques—also called Lankas—and so he gradually enriched his philosophy coming to the conclusion “It is better not to want, but just to follow. And if there is anything you follow, let it be the law of change.”
