Silat is a very popular form of self-defense in Springfield, Ohio these days because of Warrior Silat Martial Arts. The modern martial art style was developed in Indonesia (a country with a well-deserved reputation for fighting arts), but has become popular around the world for its combination of physical fitness and self-defense training.

Truly, this type of martial art offers much more than just physical benefits it greatly improves confidence and discipline as well. Many families in Springfield have started taking up Silat because they understand the benefits it offers to their children (and their families).

Silat offers both children and adults alike the opportunity to hone their coordination, balance and flexibility. In terms of self-defense, this style offers many techniques that can be used against someone who is bigger or stronger than you.

However, Silat does not rely on brute strength its focus is on using quick movements and precise strikes to disable your opponent quickly. The methods are effective, even if you are small or relatively weak. This makes Silat an excellent choice for children as long as they have trained properly from the beginning.

It is a style I have had no experience in. You just do not see it in my area. I do have experience in Kali which are close cousins.
