Jakarta (1992) Pencak SilatAs and end to the crisis there is a very important fact: The Jakarta World Championship 1992. Not participating in combat was decided, taking 3 technique teams instead. This was surprising in an occidental country, and besides the full previous preparation was made in Sumatra, living all together with the local schools. The experiences lived that time were the reward to one of the most impresionating human groups ever to be created. Results were just a revenge, and the medals achieved were puzzling as the suffered injustice. The team left Jakarta on a night plane to Singapore escorted by the police.In that very moment they were already 40 the medals got in international competitions, always away from our own frontiers and with local referees.
