MD Silat branch holiday event.

Great training today with New York Silat Team Bangau Putih. Some awesome matches!

At the Silat Institute we train Pencak Silat "Tanding" as well as NASKA style point sparring to keep our students well rounded. Tanding allows sweeps, catches and takedown, but no strikes to the head. NASKA allows strikes to the head but no sweeps, catches or take downs. Combine both and you get a very well rounded standup fighter.

150 jumping jacks just to warm up.
