    yea something like pernafasan, but you don't breath just exhale until your oxygen out from your body and then execute a few movements. If you mean with dry breathing/'nafas kering'

    So when you bwen(sp) nafas and push it all out, you don't tarik a small amount of air and hold that air in dada? Crazy.....that's intense. It makes sense though, we are told that over time, we should decrease the amount of air we take in while doing pembinaan and pengolahan. he goal being able to fight without breathing, I guess. And blindfolded, hehehehe

    actually i don't hold the air in my dada because no more air in my dada. And we also my mas would know if some one doing a mistake by hold the air in dada because when we 'buang nafas', we would hear ssssssss. but if you don't hold the air at all in dada and then 'buang nafas', you would hear nothing. usually mas mas would say ok....you pushed up :D for the people who has made a mistake.
    I practise getaran once a week. it's a great time for me and challenge me.

    I quote from site of Ray Graham:

    "one of the four full Gurus of Serak in the world"....

    ahum.. aren't there some more gurus in America and Holland as well?

    Redstorm, I don't want to cause unnecessary trouble, but your teacher's website isn't quite complete.

    Guru Graham is one of four people whom Victor de Thouars currently recognizes as a completed Serak student. There were quite a few others over the years such as Bob Vanatta. His older brothers Maurice and Paul have turned out completed students. One of them, Stevan Plinck, is my teacher. Some of these men have passed the system on to students of their own.

    There is plenty of Sera/Serah/Serak/whatever the spelling is this week outside of the de Thouars. The de Thouars brothers learned from their cousins the de Vries. The de Vries live in the Netherlands.

    Sera is certainly not extinct in Indonesia. It's not hugely popular, but it is around. That's where the Suwanda family is from and why it's part of Mande Muda. They aren't the only teachers. A couple pesilat I know have made the trip and learned Sera in Java from a variety of teachers.

    I practice a combination of Pukulan Cimande Pusaka and Kalasag Kuntao Silat.
    I also trained at Sityodtong Academy with associates of Mark Delagrotte.
