    So, just to be clear, you are saying that using muscle (aka strength) in a takedown is bad?

    Its not bad if you choose to do it that way. To me that seems like a huge waste of energy and effort. In my opinion you should be able to use your art even when :

    Old, Drunk
    Tired, handicapped, etc

    You should not have to relay on muscle to execute your response in an attack. If you understand leverage and proper striking, the silat takedowns become easy under pressure. And yes to answer your next question I have sparred using Silat and I still spar in my class with my students. We usually do a lot of multiple attacker sparring under pressure as well. BJJ, MUAY THAI, JKD, Boxing all become useless when you are dealing with more than one guy at once. The minute the **** hits the fan and you have 4 on 1 or 8 on 1 good luck using Muscle , tension & standard MMA responses.

    I'd love to see some examples of your techniques that defeat 4:1 or 8:1 odds and don't involve automatic weapons.

    I've seen video of people handling multiple opponents on t3h str33t with Boxing and Hung Gar on video so far. All links posted to if not hosted on Bullshido, one of them involving more than 4 opponents.

    Special advice for Silat Yogi:-

    PROTIP1: Boxing, Muay Thai, BJJ etc.. aren't all about being tense. In fact being tense all the time massively inhibits good striking technique and is one of the reasons old-school boxing coaches used to be against weight-lifting.

    PROTIP2: Skill can overcome strength but all skill works better when applied by a stronger, faster, better conditioned body. 'Skill can overcome strength' is never a good reason not to get in shape. 'I'm lazy', 'I just love partying too much' and 'mmmm.. cheeseburger' are all much more credible and honest reasons.

    The way I read it, the point was more that applying strength inefficiently (e.g., against a poor angle, or against a direction your opponent has strong support in) is bad. When people say "don't use strength", they generally mean "use strength well" or "use technique AND strength."
