History
The founder of Perisai Diri was Raden Mas Soebandiman Dirdjoatmodjo, better known by his nickname of Pak De. He began practicing pencak silat in his childhood and had experience in several styles such as cimande, silek, kuningan, East Javanese silat, and silat Betawi. Pak De also spent 14 years studying a southern Chinese martial art under Yap Kie San in Parakan. Perisai Diri was founded on July 2, 1955 in Surabaya by Pak De, with the assistance of Imam Ramelan. After Pak De's death in 1983, the Indonesian government granted him the title of Pendekar Purna Utama, the highest rank for a pendekar.

Style
Perisai Diri focuses on practical, straight movements that "respect the natural anatomy". Practitioners explain the different levels in the style this way: With the quick and elusive bird techniques and the vicious overwhelming power of the tiger and dragon technique.
Minangkabau
The martial arts of the Minangkabau region (known collectively as silek) in West Sumatra are among the oldest in Indonesia and are characterised by their focus on ground-fighting. According to Minang folklore, the Javanese were once intent on capturing West Sumatra.
