Satudarah MC History

Satudarah MC was founded in the town of Moordrecht, Netherlands in 1990. The town is located in Southern Holland. The first members were immigrants or children of immigrants from the former Dutch possession Moluccas, now part of Indonesia. This helps to explain why the club also has the strong presence in South East Asia.

The term “satu darah” comes from the Indonesian and Malay languages and has a meaning of “one blood”. The theme of togetherness and being a family is very common amongst motorcycle clubs of this nature.

The one percenter club has a reputation for violence, more so than some other clubs.

One aspect that sets the motorcycle club apart from many others is that their membership rules allow people of any race into the club. A large proportion of the members are either Ambonese, Dutch or Surinamese.

The one percenter motorcycle club’s expansion has really only taken off in recent years, with dozens of new chapters opening across the world since 2012.

The fight first started at a sports bar named “Lions and Barrels” and then continued in a nearby park, followed by a parking lot. One of the Satudarah Motorcycle Club members and two Hells Angels MC members were injured in the fight with stab wounds. There were also reports of gun fire, however no gun shot wounds were mentioned in the reports. The was noted to be one of the first main fights between the club and rival clubs in the country.
