    This is the fifth annual festival for showcasing silat schools in Jogyakarta, Indonesia.
    predicted just like last year, it would be around 6000 pesilat from hundreds of schools/system gather in this town in May 2015.
    So this is a good time for martial art enthusiast to witness the wide array of systems and techniques from silat around the world.

    hmm... I though I'd replied once, but it seems it was not...
    and thanks to the moderators for allowing me to create this thread.
    btw. it really was crowded and smile everywhere.
    even though no one from my school had performed there, but the atmosphere was something you'd expect from folk festival, there were stalls where you could buy trinket, weapon and clothes normally hard to find...
    btw. enough my rant, here are two videos, the first one is the march of the last day of the festival, and the second video is the winner of the choreographed martial art dance.
