Silat is a traditional martial art that originated in Southeast Asia, with a rich history and deep cultural roots. What sets Silat apart from other martial arts is its focus on real-world combat scenarios. It’s not about fancy moves or elaborate forms; it’s about practical techniques that can be applied in self-defense situations.
