From what I had seen, their free sparring is similar to what they've shown on shows like Fight Quest, but WITHOUT the chest protector or other protective gear. Now I should mention that the video I saw was a fairly old one, but given the group's reputation, I doubt much has changed.Would be nice to see a free sparring video (hint, hint).
I totally agree with you on that. I had very limited contact with them (they were here on a visit) and the "intro" lessons I received in Gayong were from the person they were visiting.I knew sulaiman for a long time so I was treated wonderfully. Got to work with a diverse group of teachers as well. I was moving through the region so I got to learn from a lot of great teachers in many different styles of silat. I went twice actually. I enjoyed it both times, it was grueling but its standard for the way I train and teach.
