Silat Walisongo Shadow Boxing

Click picture to view video.

For those readers who find our previous post, featuring an old video of a spar between two silat masters, interesting, here is a modern higher definition version featuring two practitioners of Silat Walisongo or Silat of the Nine Guardians. Again, an array of Silat techniques is on display. Though the action is dance-like and seemingly choreographed, the exponents are actually testing postures, entries, exits, counters and other techniques, sans the fisticuffs. The hard stuff comes later and, yes, Silat does have extremely violent sparring.
