Today we had the honour of training with Gusman Wirantana again, this time at his beautiful home in Jero Taman Bali. Gusman is our Film-fighting Choreographer & Stunt Coordinator for the Daimonion film and has been a wealth of knowledge & a great asset to our production.

Taking some time out after a training session with our lead Jessica, we sat down with Gusman to talk about Silat & his journey with martial arts over his Mother’s famous Balinese Ginger Tea.

Gusman spoke fondly of his love for Silat & what it meant for him & his family going back many generations. His Grandfather was the founder of Bakti Negara & much of Gusman’s inspiration came from him.

We documented our time with Gusman yesterday, which will form a part of our upcoming documentary on the great guru. Stay tuned for more information on the documentary soon!

After a fantastic day with an incredible man, we managed to have a celebratory cocktail for the New Year’s Eve festivities in the town before hitting the hay for an early flight on the 1st – a new year & a new location for part 2 of our filming!

Happy New Year!
