En 1972, le club regroupe plus de 200 élèves et devient l’une des écoles les plus réputées d’Asie. En 1985, suite à la création de la Fédération Internationale de Pencak Silat (Persilat) et du premier Championnat du Monde officiel, Maître Hosni devient le premier entraîneur de l’équipe national de Singapour jusqu’en 1995. Badriah Hosni, fille de ce dernier, se marrie avec un ressortissant suisse travaillant à Singapour pour une banque. Quand ce dernier est rapatrié dans notre pays, Badriah Hosni commence à enseigner cet art martial à un élève alors âgé de 14 ans.
