About the Teachers-

Abdur-Rahman Blanchette has been studying Martial Arts from the tender age of 10 years old. His journey began with Judo, which he studied up to the level Junior Black Belt. He was fortunate to represent the British Judo Team competing in numerous competitions in both Europe and America.

He studied and taught Judo at Junior level until the age of 20 at which point he began to learn Kung Fu. He studied the two main styles of Kung Fu over the next fifteen years and his teachers included Master Gerry Tan. Further to this he competed in the sport as well as becoming an instructor.

It was during his studies in Kung Fu, that he was drawn to Silat. He initially studied the Malaysian style under Master Arifeen in London up to Instructor level. He continued to train in this style for many years as well as teach it. He then studied the Indonesian Style with Master Abdun-Nur up to Instructor level.

In 2005, he visited Grandmaster Firdaus in the Village of Cimande, Indonesia. There he enhanced his studies and was granted permission to teach the Indonesian style of Silat to those in the West. He then visited Malaysia in 2009 for a brief period and trained with Master Shamsun-Noor who is based in Gumbak. Again, he received a license to teach the Malaysian form of Silat to others.

Although Abdur-Rahman has competed in Silat competitions (in Europe) representing the Silat UK Team, he has focused on practising and teaching Traditional Silat. He currently runs a full-time school, Silat Cimande Asli, with the British Silat Foundation in Ilford, London.

Shaykh Abdalhaqq accepted Islam in 1968 and spent a number of years in Morocco studying the Deen. Since that time he has worked with Shaykh Dr Abdalqadir al-Sufi on the establishment of Islam and Muslim communities, which has led to periods living and teaching in Nigeria, the US, Czechoslovakia, Germany, Spain, the Caribbean and the UK.

He is the author of Islam, its basic practices and beliefs, Zakat: raising a fallen pillar and a number of other works. In collaboration with his wife, the renowned translator Aisha Bewley, he has been responsible for The Noble Qur'an: a new rendering of its meanings in English, Al-Muwatta of Imam Malik and Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah (ash-Shifa) of Qadi Iyad.

Shaykh Abdalhaqq currently resides in Bradford.
