History Cekak Hanafi Martial Arts

Ok. What i want to share with you today? Why not we review about our club history? See this below. I still think Silat Cekak is the best martial art in Malaysia. But Silat also a good martial art from Malaysia. Many people from outside want to learn this arts. But its limited ONLY for Muslim..

Silat Cekak is a Malay art (Seni) of self defence (Silat) which is genuinely original and can be counted upon to preserve life. It is not a style of silat which is ceremonious in nature used for performances at traditional Malay weddings such as Silat Pulut or Silat Pengantin. As such, Silat Cekak does not have any musical accompaniment such as the traditional Malay drum or Gendang and does not perform graceful dance-like movements for public amusement such as Silat Pengantin. In fact, Silat Cekak does not utilize any evading nor side stepping techniques, whether to the left or right, in mortal combat. It deals with hostile aggression head on. Thus, Silat Cekak is a combat oriented art. It is more to defensive-type of silat because it applies 99% defending technique and only 1% attacking technique. This silat does not have any Bunga (Pattern), Langkah Gerak or Kuda-kuda (Guarding Stand).

Seni Silat Cekak contains original techniques which has never been altered ever since it came into being as a system of self defence. The system consists of hitting and maiming techniques (buah pukulan) as well as a complete array of body and limb locking techniques (buah kuncian) in its arsenal of fighting manouvers. Being complete and unique, this form of silat does not use nor imitate techniques from other systems of self defence be it local or foreign.

The fighting techniques used in this system of silat utilizes natural body movements based on a sound state of mind and a peaceful disposition. Furthermore, the teaching of Silat Cekak has been simplified and systematized to facilitate easy learning. In accordance with Islam too, this system of silat emphasizes defence rather than offence to instill a spirit of courage as well as patience. In effect, a violent and aggressive nature is not a part of Seni Silat Cekak . Only under extreme circumstances where life is at stake will the student of Silat Cekak take the offensive and initiate an attack.
