I never said all training methodologies are equal, nor are they all equal in thier individual areas of striving. Heck, Silat is not a style, but a grouping, and not all silat are equal at specific things. Which why I really can't talk about Silat as a singular entity. There is great variety out there. What I did imply was: do not underestimate anyone. My involvement in this stuff is that it offers some good tools to put in my toolbox. It's good stuff. I've found good stuff elsewhere too, but this stuff suits me.
