    Photos lack context. Dude could be showing newbs how to NOT do a triangle. Meanwhile the guy with the camera, who has sand in his vaj over not receiving his blue belt yet, snaps a picture and posts it to t3h int3rn3ts as "evidence."

    Or maybe dude just doesn't know what he's doing.

    Naw, it's from his old website where he had a bunch of photos of him and his mate doing a bunch of moves like flying knees and the like. Unfortunately the site is down, and I only had that photo in an old e-mail. Maybe I might be able to find some of the other photos in the cache of my old laptop,
    But it's doubtful.

    Yeah, if he can't demo a triangle, what hope is there that you're going to pull off some crazy silat move by looking at his video.

    Anyone who does silat, can you answer a few questions?

    Is the dance they do after they flail a bit then back off part of it or is it to regain stance or something? Also, after they score by throw, do they all have to wave their arms looking smug? Is this competition rule? Finally, why after one or two strikes do they walk away instead of following up with more attacks, is it point based?

    I'm fairly sure this would still count as a sapu and not a beset even though it's against the back of the leg like that.

    The posturing is the adoption of traditional stances after the technique, while if this was "real" Silat they're be following the guy down with dropping knees, elbows and hand strikes.
    With that in mind, they're obviously fighting point-based. It's more like competition Tae Kwon Do rather than Kyokushin, though I hear that there are some contests in parts of Java with more contact. You'll also notice after landing a clearly solid kick with the heel to the body they disengage due to the point they just earned.

    check around 2:20, there's a guy with good hands and he follows up his throw with a good pounding. I like that guy. So many of these other guys look like they're fighting in kindergarten or something.

    Ok, that make sense. Thats a shame really. I'd like to see full contact if thats the case. The final vid was close, but it seemed that as soon as one started flailing the other followed. Major case of handbags at dawn.

    Yep. It's a big sign of, let's say it all together folks: LACK OF SPARRING. They do forms (jurus) all day long or short choreographed defensive drills, but no sparring.
