Another Great Silat Kuntau Tekpi Seminar
Sammy Performs Buah #8 on Eric
I'm pleased to report another outstanding Silat Kuntau Tekpi seminar! After a grueling hour of Senamentua, we covered the following buah:
- Kembang Layar
- Jerai Menumpang
- Lipat Sotong
- Patah Kemudi
Yet again, numerous applications from Pekiti were given for each technique. Its great that we have people of so many different body types to practice (or should I say "experiment") on. When we are locking and twisting our training partner, our main concern is for his safety. You can very well imagine the damage that could be done when the locking buahs are applied in real-time without regard for the opponent.
I encourage all of you to acquire a set of practice tekpi (also known as "sais") as I will be starting to teach some basic drills with single and double weapons in the weeks to come.
