In martial arts, attack technique is based on the ideology of each the styles of martial art. Like the Taekwondo, the concept is "the art of the feet and the hands" or "the art of kicking and punching" and "the way of the foot and the hand." That is why they use a lot of punches and kicks. In silat, to be a worthy and strong Silat fighter, either in the arena or on the street, there are seven self defense moves that really should be mastered.

Kicking  
In Silat, the focus is on targeting your kicks rather than trying to get them as high as possible, and training with a punching bag or kicking target can be an excellent way to perfect your kicks. The most effective kick is the front kick, because the power is targeted directly to your opponent.

Counter Attack 
If your opponent catches your strike with either a leg or a hand, you can employ a counter attack also known as a polong. A martial arts technique that focuses on locking and catching should use the counter attack technique and this is a great strategy to employ if your opponent is not seriously dead or injured.

The fighting techniques described above should not be used unless you are highly trained and skilled and are in a very real and serious situation, as they are all very powerful and effective and can easily kill a man. The best Silat exponent is one who has a good heart, and you should keep in mind that these techniques are for self defense only and should be taken seriously.
