Hello Everyone, I know several people who have taken up something like karate to lose weight, improve focus etc. The internet is full of these kinds of stories. As a matter of fact I've heard some inspiring stories of transformation from people practicing all kinds of MA. But I haven't heard much about this in regards to Silat. So what do you think? Can you do the same with Silat? Can it be taught as a lifestyle? Sorry if I'm asking a question with an obvious answer. I don't know much about Silat it's philiosophy or if it even has an over riding one. I'm just kind of "thinking out loud". Thanks for putting up with me.
