Silat

The traditional art of self defence and concentration of this region has a fascinating history that goes back into pre-history. As the origin of all these forms of unarmed and armed combat appear to begin with Kalari Payat in South India (Chinese Qikong not being an exception), and the Majapahit Empire was here a very long time, it is probable that Silat has some roots from that era. Certainly it has developed its own unique forms – there is more than one style of Silat – and adepts are awesome.
