    And it has the most "live" training there is with true death matches.

    In a related story, tuition at every silat school in the world just went up 350%.

    I see your point, but the ban isn't about how dangerous silat is; it's about how the silat clubs can't figure out how to act like grownups. If they're going to be street gangs, then at least the government can take away their legally sanctioned power to recruit new members out in the open.

    That said, I can't help thinking that part of the problem here is weak law enforcement. The reason the aforementioned Black Dragon thing didn't devolve into a full-blown feud is that the people stirring **** up got put in prison after the first incident.

    I get that, I clicked the story saying WTF, and that was all covered.

    That said, there is no way somebody isn't painting "TOO D34DL33 4 TEEMORE" on their wall as we speak.

    That's what the government wants you to think.

    It's because I care about my European brothers my ancestors are from that part of the world. I want Europe to share in our freedoms.

    The thought of a Silat player actually being willing to step up and fight someone else is the more mind-blowing part for me.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.
