  1. I am a student of Silat. However we must always remember that Silat Al-Haq is not for fighting. You train to kill but you do not kill. In Silat Al-Haq you are not allowed to punch or kick your opponent except in training. Such is the emphasis of patience in Silat Al-Haq. Have patience. Peace and love for all.
