2Rough and Tumble

You can gouge someones eye out and throw hard punches


Traditional silat was developed over the centuries with the aim of killing your enemy, as fast and efficient as possible. Since killing another person is outlawed today, silat has evolved into a self-defense mechanism rather than an art of killing. Therefore, it has lost some of its DNA. The current silat moves are more focused on disabling your opponent. The only way to learn the traditional silat is to go deep into the forests of Southeast Asia and learn through their master. It's not just a martial art, it is also a spiritual way of life. If the traditional silat is still legal today, it would easily beat Krav Maga. No questions about that.
