Learn About Silat - Southeast Asia Martial Arts Style
Silat is a martial arts style that was developed in Southeast Asia (i.e. Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, etc.). Silat comes in many variations as each Southeast Asia nation seems to have put its own spin on this martial arts style.
This martial arts focuses on techniques such as strikes (i.e. elbow and knee), throws, takedowns and weapons (i.e. kris sword and the karambit). One of the more unique Indonesian Silat weapons is the Sarong. While a sarong is better known as a traditional skirt, it is worn as a sash in Silat. The sarong is used to choke, trap and entangle opponents.
