Uwe Pätzold (Member of Perguruan Silek Tuo Pusako Minang - Cologne, Amsterdam, Bukittinggi - ) writes:
As for the time these pictures were shot (late 1980s), Pak Lenggang was still in charge as the grand master of the "Silek Tuo Pusako Minang" style school. He died in 1991. Ramli Sutan Mudo took over the duties for leading the school from the hands of Pak Lenggang after his death.
