The concept of this martial arts..

Silat Cekak Hanafi is a truly original art of self-defence and is not a silat for play or sport (Silat Olahraga). Silat Cekak Hanafi has set methods with strike forms and complete locking techniques. The movement and system of this silat is based on the natural movements of the human being grounded in healthy thought, a calm soul and is clearly compatible with with the principles of Islam.Its studies place emphasis on self-defence to inculcate courage, not violence or violation. Only when absolutely necessary and for the sake of safety does Silat Cekak Hanafi attack first.Silat Cekak Hanafi awaits attacks in a straight-backed high stance (the stance used in salat) and does not employ evasions to the left of right; but moves forward in a single intercepting movement.
In reality, Silat Cekak Hanafi is a silat based on the study of movement (Silat Gerak).Most surprising and curious of all is, during its method of attack, the opponent would find it impossible to avoid, and if he were to parry the attack would lead to a devastating counterattack. This is due to the practitioner’s ability to attack and trap in one move. (Cekak menyerang, Cekak menangkap). Practitioners are taught to defend against empty handed and weapons attacks with only their bare hands. The objective of Silat Cekak Hanafi is to counter a weapons attack to disarm an opponent.
