    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    what do you guys make of this?

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...313105&q=silat

    I'm interested in what you guys think about the striking techniques in this clip.

    Ignoring the fact that the drills are obviously being done for demonstration purposes (hence the compliant partners) do you think strikes like that have any merit?

    (please ignore the weapons and takedown stuff as well...I'm just interested in discussing striking)

    I'm interested in hearing what people think about strikes done with that kind of speed:

    Is it possible to get power to hurt someone with quick hits like that? Or are they merely done to keep the opponent off guard while you set something powerful up - like an elbow?

    Or is it just Bullshido?

    Maybe some of the more experienced CMAers/Silat guys can comment - I have zero CMA or Silat experience so I'm curious to hear if people think hitting like that is for show or useful in real life.

    Thanks.

    No I don't mean extreme martial arts.

    Ex-TMA as in Ex-Traditional Martial Arts....more specifically Ex-TKD and Ex-Shotokan...but I can't fit all that in the bio so Ex-TMA had to do.

    I'm no expert on silat (or anything in MA, except how to get ripped off), but I've seen other videos of this guy and it seems to me that while silat may have its merits this guy appears to be working on an acting career. If I were being taught by him I'd probably pick the less "slap happy" type of attacks to focus on in my training.

    Ok, this is just my take on it so I may be wrong. From a boxing viewpoint when he dodges or parries a strike he moves his upper body too much, kind of messing up his stance. His footwork is weird it doesn't look like he's ever 'rooted' for a solid shot, when he's not doing something in slow motion anyway. His footwork is also wierd in that his feet don't seem to follow his upper body movements.

    Now I do see some things that also done in Enshin, like when he parries and moves off to a blindspot, only it's done in a more upright stance in Enshin, as opposed to the way he moves just his upper body around the strike, and then the trip only in Enshin we would do the O Soto Geri, so instead of just pushing him over I'd kind of kick his leg out from under him.

    From what I've read Silat does have good things to offer, only many places have the whole "too deadly to spar" attitude, but I have also read about Silat schools that compete. So take my observations for what it's worth, also I probably did this more so that someone would critique my observations and possibly explain why I saw what I saw.
