Hi all, I have been toying with the idea of getting back into martial arts again (after quite a long hiatus). I have had varying experiences with Silat schools, and I would to ask two really simple questions, which I am hoping you can all help with: 1. Are all silat schools and teachings intrinsically linked with the spiritual aspect of the art? 2. Are there any schools in the London area which purely teach the art, based on it's martial side, rather than the internal/spiritual side of the art? Thanks in advance, for any help you can give.
