A Rare Silat Form

This video features a Silat Golok Seliwa Betawi form by Guru Bang HusinSilat Seliwa is the name of the style, Golok is a short machete and Betawi is an old name for Jakarta, Indonesia.  Notice how the form is done in one continuous take, without pauses, unlike the start and stop you may see in many other martial arts, and how the old master smiles throughout. Totally impressive.
