Silat Pulut: Silat vs Capoeira

Click picture to view video.

Many martial arts have stylized two person training-cum-competitive drills such as Wing Chun's Chi Sao and Taiji's Push Hands. In the same vein, Silat has Silat Pulut, a slow motion fighting exercise. Generally conducted with light or no contact, it doesn't look too interesting to the uninitiated but for those who can discern the techniques been executed, though without contact or violence, it is a joy to watch. In this Silat Pulut clip, a Silat practitioner, in all black, takes on a Capoeira opponent. Very nice. [Spotted via]
