    I've only just started Silat, but this looks like the Kembangan - the flower dance. But I stand to be corrected on that, I'm really only a few lessons in.

    But for the interested, here's some info.

    It is more of a friendly "play" called Silat Pulut.

    Huge interpretation in its approach from style to style... :)

    I hear you on that, man. One of the things that the guru at the class I go to is quite clear on making Silat "your" Silat (obviously when you know enough to know what you're doing).

    I really wish I knew more about the deeper levels of the art - but that only comes with time, but its a fascinating thing to do, that's for sure.

    Very true. Silat is not one of the easier arts to learn.

    That's what makes it so fascinating. I trained Wing Chun for ages...(but that was ages ago too), but Silat is so...well, complex. I struggle with it a lot, but that's why I like it. Its very rewarding when you can do something right - cos, as you say, its not easy to learn even the fundamentals - especially when your body is used a more linear thing like Wing Chun.

    Amazing stuff. Shows what can be done, when you really know how to use your body effectively - able-bodied or disabled.
