Dear Kiai Carita, I will say first off I do enjoy reading many of your posts and find them quite informative. My sincerest thanks for your insight. However, we train to know how to use a kris, you don't. It's really fine with me that you don't and even think we shouldn't. That's where it ends. Let it go Mate. You're not going to change anyone's mind here. Better to use your time and talents on another Silat related topic that will promote unity among the Silat practitioners rather than divisiveness. There is too much divisiveness in the Silat community anyway, more so than even the Ninjitsu guys. Keep in mind we are all working to promote an Indonesian cultural art. We may not do it perfectly all the time but our hearts are in the right place. Cheers.
