Indonesian Pentjak Silat is one of the most savagely effective fighting arts to ever come out of Asia. Yet despite its combat-proven effectiveness, the details of this brutal fighting system have remained shrouded in secrecy — until now. In this revolutionary two-disc video set, silat expert Joseph Simonet presents step-by-step instruction in the first six jurus (solo hand forms) of silat and shows you how to apply the movements of these forms to totally devastate any opponent. He then unlocks the secrets of silat's distinctive lower-body movements and shows you how to make and use the pantjar and tiga, geometric platforms that hold the key to all silat footwork. Finally, Simonet reveals the underlying concepts that are the heart of silat's deadly effectiveness and teaches you how to use them to create your own practical, street-realistic expression of this forbidden fighting art. This is the first time this information has ever been offered to the public and the only hard-core instruction in the fighting form of silat available on video. Don't miss this rare insight into one of the world's deadliest fighting forms.
