    What Silat I did as part of my Jeet Kune Do years, was akin to BJJ but more standup, fig 4 armlock takedown. to a set of breaks/chokes and even some sprawling/RNC. I'm not sure if it was Silat but that's what It was labelled as.

    I'm here all week, try the fish.

    I was meaning compared to to the striking and stick fighting I did it was the most akin to grappling that I experienced before training in BJJ. I do have a big problem looking back at the JKD and I worry I wasted my time learning 80% LARP.

    Eh. Silat is effective because authentic silat works off really great body mechanics, just like you would find at a great BJJ school. When i say authentic silat there is a more old-school, brutal form of martial art in comparison to the more modern malaysian sport derivatives which look like tkd or karate. Anyways, ive used some basic silat techniques in a confrontation before and they worked very quickly. Ive done a puter kepala on a guy sparring at medium effort as well as a kenjet. It really wasnt anything impossibly hard by any means.

    As TheMightyMcClaw commented a page or two back, talk is cheap. The worldwide conspiracy to hide all video of "authentic silat" being used against resisting opponents is getting old.

    Ron balicki's fighting sarong, and his filipino boxing tapes both had silat stuff being pulled off in sparring. I think the art's been mostly eating itself since world war II, so while I enjoyed myself while training it, and still use plenty of silat techniques while stick sparring and occasionally wrestling, I think it's mostly gonna get worse. The "too deadly" bit is just eating it alive. Everyone I've ever met who I could point to as a good example is cross-trained.

    hey guys sorry for my additional replies which just extended this thread which has no video. Ive been thinking now I wanna see that too. Hopefully there will be someone in the silat community soon who wants to pressure test on video. If i can even find a friend or someone at some point i will try to put together a clip myself which shows at least some kind of moderate resistance or pressure testing.
