Is this authentic?
I hope so, since it has something to do wtih my religion and beliefs.

This is the home page.


http://www.mubai.cc/home.htm




There is an article that essentially sums up most of the style better then the webpage.


Here it is:

There was a discussion on a German forum somewhere and the silat mubai founder discusses where it comes from. IIRC, he teaches in China and silat mubai is a JKD-like blend of arts that the founder had studied. Some eskrima, some silat, some ninjitsu and a smattering of others as well. So while he calls it silat, it's not necessarily direct Indonesian lineage silat. I'm not saying it's bad or anything, I've only seen the promo video and read that exchange on the forum. The founder (who looks pretty young) seems a well-spoken, friendly guy. So if you can find it, check it out. See how you like it.

Here's the link. (http://www.kampfkunst-board.info/forum/f6/silat-mubai-videoclip-26986/index2.html#post373064) I can't find the section about what silat mubai is based from. Maybe I imagined it. Oh well, it's still a good read.

Silat Mubai is some of the better Silat I've seen on the net, although if you notice, the petite Chinese students that the instructor throws around are all like 1/2 of his size, so I think that kind of makes him look more badass than if he was up against opponents his own size. Anyway, the dude makes one dvd about "how to sound convincing" when you talk. He says something like "When you hear me say 'stand over there or I'm going to kill you' you can hear the conviction in my voice, and you know that I'll kill you if you don't do what I say." I thought that was a hoot- borderline RBSD stuff.

Irregardless, dude seems to have some good material, and his unashamed ackowledgement Silat's Islam influence takes guts. His dv's are cheap as hell too, and PACKED with material (although I don't care for his knifework that much). Better than a William Sanders dance routine anyday...

Looks like RSBD with alot of knife fighting. Are Silat Mubai and Kali related? Im only asking because i was watching this guys footwork and it reminded me of Kali footwork.

Silat and Kali are generally related. Most kali empty hand work has heavy silat influence, and most silat entries work just fine when using kali footwork.

WTF would you put a person through that???

You'll never sit there while someone beats you with a stick or run's you over with a car.

They even have a kid go through it.

What kind of technique do these guys do? what kind of sparring?

EDIT:

I mean if you put a guy through that, they must have some fucked up sparring.

I don't know.

For all that I can figure out that was their version of sparring....
