Himpunan Sang Sapurba Segayong Malaysia

Silat practitioners are the country's third line of defence against internal and external threats, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Najib, who was speaking at Himpunan Sang Sapurba Segayong Malaysia, said silat practitioners were the third line of defence because of their warrior spirit.

Najib also called on silat practitioners to practice restraint against irresponsible parties intent on instigating hatred amongst the Malays and Malaysians.

"We must not let certain quarters destroy what our forefathers have built."

At the event, Najib presented various sashes to silat masters and launched the Silat Gayong Foundation.

Also present was the Minister of Domestic Trade, Consumerism and Cooperatives Datuk Hasan Malek and Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Brig-Gen (rtd) Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom.

Sarong as a Weapon in Silat

A sarong or sarung  is a large tube or length of fabric, often wrapped around the waist and worn by men and women throughout much of South Asia. The fabric most often has woven plaid or checkered patterns, or may be brightly colored by means of batik. Many modern sarongs have printed designs, often depicting animals or plants.

Although sarong is the clothing, but sarong can also be used as a weapon in combat to attack and defend yourself. Cindai is the generic term for the sarong style of silat used typically to lock in combat.

The video demonstrates training technique with repetition, and then at the end of the video shows a little bit of free-flow with some resistance. Though not shown in this video, the next progression of training would be sparring.
