    Sorry for chiming in so late. I study & teach Pentjak Silat Serak under Pak Victor DeThouars. I've also learned a little Maphilindo Silat from Guro Dan. I plan on visiting Guru Bob Vanatta in Colorado soon, to pick up some Silat Bledek.

    I was at a weapons demo yesterday one of the guests was a guy who studies sheik fighting system I believe he called it ganti he mostly talked about the weapons they used. He mentioned their empty hand system was based after eight different animals and he did some stuff that kinda looked like a form of djurus. does anyone know more about this style is it like silat or harimau.

    thanx moe389

    Sheik or sikh? One, sheik, is a title. The other, sikh, is a religion. I've had a couple sikh friends and apparently they have a long martial tradition and are well known as warriors and justice keepers. The impression that my friend gave me is that sikhs were known as justice and peace keepers when fighting broke out between muslims and hindus in diffrent time periods in India. One of the 5 symbols of thier religion is the blade which they're supposed to have on thier person on all times, usually these days its evolved into a harmless peice of jewelery(like a sikh equivlent of a christian cross). Acouple friends have accidently wandered into park clearings where sikhs were practicing and they immediately stopped. I think in many cases they're still pretty secretive about thier art.

    I study Pukulan Pentjak Silat Sera. We sometimes use the silent "k" on he end of Sera. West Javanese, and my teacher is Maha Guru Stevan Plinck, who is one of Paul de Thouars senior students.

    We are based on the blade, though we don't get to that until our teacher deems we have enough skill in empty-handed work to properly deal with the knife.

    It's a djuru-based art, and my teacher's website is www.pencaksilat.com, for more information.

    Well I train in Pencak Silat Pertempuran down here in Sunny Florida (although recently it's been hurricane florida). I'm learning from a combination of personal lessons from Pendiri Stark and tape training. I've trained in a few different martial arts (none of them long enough to mention) and PSP is the most fun I've had.

    I studied Silat Harimau (the Sumatra one, not the Java one), Silek Pauh, and Silek Tuo. I also have some exposure to Cimande, Cikalong, and Sabandar.

    Hello and salam to all, I practise a family silat that has no name but I also learned silat from the Bogor Bangau Putih school. However I was never a proper pupil in the organisation. I only met the late Grand Master Subur Raharja a few times. He was a very spiritual man, the most spiritual man I have ever met. ... The question about breathing is not one easily answered over the internet. The only breathing exercise I know that can be taught over the internet is pernafasan bayi (baby breath). This is the breath one does when totally relaxed. One practises it by practising relaxation. ... The non technical baby breath is the base on which to learn other breathing techniques. Technical breathin is best learned under a the guidance of a proper instructor.
