Silat Suffian Bela Diri

Nation of Brunei Abode of Peace


Silat Suffian Americas began as a martial arts training group in Washington, DC metro area. We primarily train and promote the Bruneian tribal warfare art Silat Suffian Bela Diri (SSBD), the intellectual property of Maul Mornie.

As interest in this art grew, SSBD study groups developed throughout the world. To maintain and promote Bruenian martial art education, members of the Washington DC metro area training group formed Kelasak LLC, DBA Silat Suffian Americas, as the sole distributor of Maul Mornie’s intellectual property in North and South America.

Since formation, Silat Suffian Americas has trained martial artists across US and Latin America, as well as members of United States Secret Service and Federal Air Marshal Service. During the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual training continues Saturdays and Sundays.

Silat Suffian Americas maintains a foreign license agreement with Kelasak Martial Arts of Negara Brunei Darussalam. We own USPTO service mark 90025653 and offer sub-licensing to qualifying SSBD study groups.



We oversee Silat Suffian Bela Diri training in North and South America while maintaining a local training group for the Mid-Atlantic region.  Contact us for Mid-Atlantic training information. For other regions please see Study Groups on the homepage.



As per our foreign license agreement with Kelasak Martial Arts of Negara Brunei Darussalam, Silat Suffian Americas is permitted to sub-license the usage of USPTO service mark 90025653 to qualifying study groups.
