Great clips.

 

How does Geometry factor into Pencak Silat?

 

Foundational, Abstract, Theoretical, Principal Angles, Freeflow?

 

Silat looks very exact, and yet at the same time, it has an intuitive quality to it.

 

How does Spanish Fencing influence Silat?

Brother you are always welcomed.

 

You should plan for next years silat camp.

 

Great clips.

 

How does Geometry factor into Pencak Silat?

 

its all based on Geometry & the laws of physics.

 

 

You learn to fight using straight lines, triangles, squares, diamonds, crosses, zig zags, 90 degree staircases, circles,

 

with in those symbols of shapes you learn to find the complimentary angles and "hash Marks" & you learn to exploit them for takedowns, target selection, manipulation of energy, Locks, movement Evasion, offense/defense, strikes, kicks, Multiple attackers etc.

That is a great way to put it. With silat there is no GUESS WORK.

 

It all falls into place based on physics, and feeling.

 

How does Spanish Fencing influence Silat?

 

Not sure that it does other than the Moros (Moors) probably left some silat in spain and then that got filtered into spanish fencing.

 

Peace

Excellent.

 

I know that the Fillipino Arts were influenced by Spanish Fencing, and I'd always wondered if the same was true of Silat.

 

Interesting similarities and differences. Fascinating history.

Right you are.

 

i didn't mean to bruise Cultural Pride.

 

I just find it fascinating to see how Geometry refines an Art (all Arts for that matter).

 

Silat and Kali look like they can fly through anything.

 

Great stuff. Thanks. :)

I think there are Filipinos who might disagree. Visayan, sure. Others? Maybe not so much.

Do These Grown Men take this nonsense serious. These arts are 90% fake & give Silat a bad name. I have seen some Comedians in My time but this Demo below truly takes the cake ROFL :lol:

There are things you just do not understand. & Yes some of this can "look" fake. THere are charlatans out there for sure but there are also real deal folks.

 

Real silat is MUCH more than just punch kick sweep etc....

 

It is to deal with the seen & "unseen".

 

Peace & God Bless

good article on cimande & my Guru Haji Pak Muhammad Ariffin Mang Ipin :

:)

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Traditional Pencak Silat Cimande Girang Walisongo

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Are Internet Forums awesome, or what! Amazing article Vajrasattva. :)

 

Much of the waterfall training is a lot like the Yamabushi of Japan.

 

The reason I asked about the angles and approaches of Pencak Silat can be seen in the clips below.

(I wanted to know how Silat was similiar, and also how it differs as well.) (Check the clips, you'll see what I mean.) Thanks. Take care. :)

Cool Glad you enjoyed article Guru Haji Pak Muhammad Ariffin Mang Ipin is great. And a true internal master.

 

The angles in those vids are similar. Wing cun exploits a lot the triangle & somewhat the square.

 

All good arts use the geometry at high level.

 

Peace

Man that Video was complete crap. I dont know why students continue to train in such garbage & delude themselves into thinking they truly have something.

 

Im well aware how these schools operate after visiting dozens in my spare time all over java. They cannot just do it to anybody at will. They give you some big story that it only works if the attacker is truly angry or has evil intent towardws you. Those students you see are called SPECIAL because they can supposedly muster up the real anger etc to make it work.

 

9/10 this stuff doesnt work. If you cant perform this skill anytime anywhere like real chi - then its not even worth learning. people often talk about the real masters but in 12 years & after meeting almost hundreds still nobody can do it in indonesia apart from john chang.

John Chang is the only person with REAL chi on the planet....NO ONE ELSE.

 

As we say in my country near FLA city.....NIGGA PLEASE.

 

You are correct that there are flakes like in all subjects of study but there are also real gems. maybe its your perspective that has prevented you from actually meeting any with real value.

 

I mean just from your "chi" here I wouldn't take you on as a student. I know people in Java that know JC & they say he is great but that there are others as well.

 

Also keep in mind that some of the "high up" silat masters are Muslim or Sufi. Unless you embrace their faith rarely would they open up to you.

 

 

Peace & Godbless
