no silat Yes, you could be right. but i do notice this : in every national or provincial karate tournaments, the army is always have their representatives competing. i dont know about others, but here the army is always actives in every nationals level sports competition(well they always their hands on everything), strangely not with silat. its also goes to their own internal sport tournaments, no silat. do you know that silat was committed as an martial arts events in our national sports competitions probably just 5 or 7 years ago, despite their existency from hundreds years ago. before that its only considered as dance culture or something.
