There are many aspects of Silat or any martial art which needs to be grasped and understood in order to master its techniques. Buah Pukulan is a term used to describe a self defense technique. Usually, silat schools teach a certain formula to deal with attacks, based on the concepts and foundations of the Silat style.
Most of the time, a certian amount of Buah Pukulan or combat scenarios are programmed into the body memory of pesilat (silat exponents). A typical buah pukulan could comprise of parrying, counter attack (strike, kick etc), throw or dropping technique and finishing technique i.e; locks, chokes, holds, breaks, or kill.
There are however many subtle or hidden aspects of Buah Pukulan which will not be noticed by the untrained eye. This includes body mechanics, footwork, breathing, distance, timing, speed and power. Internal energy in Silat is sometimes referred to as Ilmu, Isi or tenaga dalam. These aspects can only be understood when training under a skilled and experienced Guru of Silat.
Here are a few videos to demonstrate or touch on some of the above-mentioned aspects. Please enjoy :)
