Doc asked me the following questions: For instance, here in the USA, if someone joins “Smith’s Tae Kwon Do”, he or she may very well wear a t shirt about town with the school logo or have a bumpersticker on their car. Alsothey may carry gym bags or other items around that might clue someone in that they have a martial arts background.
Are students over in Malaysia at all similar in this regard? Are they instructed to be more discrete? How does the government view such training? I assume that it is felt to be more than a peculiar sport over there. Do the instructors advertise in anyway or is it by word of mouth?
How do prospective students find a school? I guess I find it interesting that they would have “brass knuckles”.

Was this weapon introduced during the colonial period since the Europeans have this weapon? Structurally, is it different than what an American or European might haveaside fromperhapssize? What degree of proficiency can be developed in 7 days? This sound like a fascinating system. Doc” Silat in Malaysia today has on several different approaches to publicity. Not many of the Silat systems have opened their systems to non-Muslims. The funny thing is that the number one system in Malaysia — by far — is Tae Kwon Do!
The buku-lima tend to be used on only one hand, with the other hand free to strip off the buku-lima quickly if needed. Buku-lima is the weapon of choice of most of the Silat systems that originate from the Bugis people Sulawesisince they emphasize a sideways stance and a strong lead hand role.
Please note that the buku-lima is placed on top of the second row of knuckles like a “leopard fist”and the fist is cocked back so that the second row of knuckles falls in line with the forearm. The following two pictures show Silat Sendeng also from the Bugis people – their fists are cocked as if they have the buku-lima, even though they do not in the photos: The weapon came from Sulawesi. He wrote the definitive book on small Malaysian weapons back in I just licensed the copyright to the book and hope to have it translated into English later this year Doc just sent me the following email message: I am interested in how the instructors select who they shall interview and the whole process of bringing a new student in How hard do they make it to join?
Are there common concerns and issues? Do different instructors do it differently? Are some a bit lax and some extremely discerning? I am interested in their screening process. I now havea student formally apply and supply me with a background and references A deliberate event may occur during dinner that the student may not even realize is a test.
From the student’s prospective, everyone enjoyed a polite dinner together. If the prospective student fails the test, the Cikgu will say that he’ll consider the prospective student’s request to train, and then – after a couple of days – decline to teach the student with no explanation offered… The delay is so that silaf student won’t realize that there was a test that he failed during the dinner.
Another test is to ask a prospective student to write a formal letter explaining why he wants to study Silat and to submit the letter to the Cikgu. The Cikgu will read the letter and then do nothing. If the student approaches the Cikgu and asks for the status of his request, the Cikgu will say that he is still considering the request and will decline to give a time as to when his decision will be made. The Cikgu will then wait again to see if and when the student will contact him again.
The Cikgu will repeat that he is still considering the application which is a true statement and he will decline again to say when the review will be complete. The Cikgu will then wait to see if and when there will be a third contact.
If the student remains polite, respectful, patient and persistent during the third contact, the Cikgu will say on the spot that the decision is yes.
The third test that I’ve observed involves how the student conducts himself during the first meeting.
What gifts if any did he bring? What questions is he asking? The Cikgu will ask a very simple question: Tae Kwon Do or Muay Thai? Some of his relatives were at his house and answered the door, but Cikgu Sani was not there. It ends up that he had left the day before to accompany some of his relatives to the airport. Those relatives were leaving to perform their Hajj Pilgrimage to Mecca. We made ourselves comfortable in his front room and we all dozed off to sleep.
Cikgu Sani arrived at his house around 10 am. He apologized for the miscommunication regarding our arrival time and for not being there to greet us when we arrived.
Cikgu Sani is a fascinating man. He is much more soft-spoken than I expected. He knew of me from my teacher Cikgu Lan, and he knew that I had come to Kedah to seek his permission to teach and to commercialize Silat Kuntau Tekpi.
We quickly got down to business. I explained my overall plan and approach to him. Cikgu Sani listened and asked a few questions.
When I was done presenting my plan, Cikgu Sani went quiet. There was an awkward silence for what felt like several minutes.

Finally, Cikgu Sani spoke. He approved of my plan and agreed to allow me to gsyong Silat Kuntau Tekpi outside of Malaysia. I was blown away by his decision. Cikgu Sani then told me that he had been waiting for someone to approach him with such a request. Apparently, the idea of promoting this Silat worldwide has been a longtime dream of his… He then said that I had his full blessing and support to silay my plan.
As our meeting was wrapping up, Cikgu Sani asked me to change into my Silat uniform. When I asked him why, he told me that he was going to perform music at a wedding at noon, and that he wanted me to demonstrate my Silat at the siilat.
I was shocked sjlat more than a little nervous. So I changed into my Silat uniform and we headed to the wedding. I was still woozy from not having slept the night before and I had huge butterflies from the thought of my impending performance. Cikgu Sani is a fantastic musician! Luckily, I captured some of sjlat performance on videotape. Anyway, one by one, different Silat practitioners got up and performed to the music in front of a crowd of about 80 or so wedding guests.
A Sumatran system called Silat Biku Phoenix Silat had a total of about six or seven students who got up and performed. I was so fascinated by their movements that I almost forgot that I was to get up soon. When he was done, everyone then looked at me. I just then realized that I was the last one to get up.
And then – I just moved. It was the weirdest experience. I had Silat movements come out from so many different sources: I still have no idea what I did. When it was over, everyone gave me an enthusiastic round of applause, but I have a feeling that it was more about seeing a foreigner doing something that vaguely resembled Silat then about the performance itself.
Someone later told me that he was actually proud of me and pleased with my performance. I agreed, grabbed my video camera, and off we went. Baling is a very cool place. Full of coconut trees and streams and sprawling rice fields.
The Thai border a range of hills on the horizon look close enough to touch. They told me that the Thai border was 3 or 4 pots of rice away… Very interesting… After my tour, we returned to the house. I gauong told to relax for a while and then prepare to go out for dinner. Among other things, Cikgu Sani is a healer who uses biku Malay methods. He recently helped an old woman in Baling recover from a serious illness.
I was beginning to feel like Alice in Wonderland. I never knew what was going to happen next. The house was very remote. It was only 20 or so minutes away, but it was down a winding dirt road that few 4WD vehicles could have navigated, gatong the trees were so close to the dirt road.
When we arrive at the house, it was like we had stepped back in time. It buuk a bhku house on stilts. It was a traditional Malay house.
