Selamat Datang - Welcome
"Silat is about respect and harmony. It is manifested physically into a quest for friendship and spiritually into a quest for God. A Silat Master starts to teach his students by strengthening their moral character and religious devotion. That is why practice only started after evening prayers. Why? because the silat students were expected to be of noble character. Only then, does he start to teach the self defense aspects of the martial art.
The third aspect is the aspect of silat as an art form. These three aspects, spiritual, martial and arts are the aspects which now form our heritage. The first two aspects; spiritual and martial forms the basis for security. The third aspect, art, is an expression of prosperity. Security and prosperity are the foundations for national security and integrity."
