"Silat message: I enjoyed doing karate in the holidays. I can do moves that I never thought I
could do. I would like to continue with karate."
"My experience with silate... I found silate very interesting and enriching. I think I have
learnt alot and will be able to defend myself if need be. I felt we have an assertive teacher
who helped us achieve our personal best. My only negative comment is that we as a class were
very disruptive and our teacher found it hard to control us and therefore we lost alot of our
time when our teacher stopped the class to discipline and talk to us. I found this course to be
physically challenging which helped me improve my physical power."
"I enjoyed the Silat course alot. My favourite parts were the kicking and the evading
techniques. One thing that I won't forget is that you can see a persons attitude by looking at
their body language. I also won't forget the breathing exercises. I would come back again,
because I still know there is more for me to learn. It is fun and you're learning discipline
and how to push yourself at the same time."

easy to do so is the punch. Thank you for teaching me."

silat, like respect you also learn how to defend yourself ect. Silat is something that will
take 3 years to perfect. What I like about silat is that it's lot's of fun and when you get to
try it out on people. what I learnt...respect."
