Silat makes me sad.
Silat takedowns look super cool. However, I can't see any of them working against a resisting opponent that doesn't really want to look cool falling on the ground. Has anyone seen any live Silat takedowns? Is there any video of it so I can not be so sad?

That made me sadder. I have no idea why they kept stopping.
Ok they were scoring throws. Just really bad video.
I found the rules though. :( Not head contact and you have to use Silat moves and stepping patterns.

Did that guy who got dropped on his head towards the beginning die? That was a vicious throw.

I was going to mention that most of the highlights in that video were illegal/no points. :(

I learned a few silat stretching/warmups at one of the DB gatherings. It was kinda similar to some of the drills in Scott Sonnon's Grappler's Toolbox DVD. Neat stuff. Also one of the younger guys (Top Dog's son, I believe) used some of the characteristic silat footwork (the kneeling kind) in a knife vs knife bout, and did so skillfully and effectively.
That's about all I have to say about silat.

I want to see the head twisting sliding past people style throws. I guess no one can actually make them work?
