Silat - Martial Art

A Silat (Malay martial art) demonstration was held during the Hari Raya Feast organized by the mosque in our neighbourhood.

I wonder if it's closer to judo or karate?

Hi Leif, I think silat is closer in similarity to karate or tae kwan do than judo.

Hi Steph, it's my first time witnessing a silat demonstration. It's quite fun to see it.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
