"The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses, behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights." - Muhammad Ali

BERKORBAN apa sahaja. Itulah dilakukan barisan pesilat negara yang terpaksa melupakan sambutan Hari Raya Aidilfitri tahun ini kerana bakal 'bertapa' selama tiga minggu di kawasan pergunungan Da Lat, Vietnam bagi menghadapi Sukan SEA Kuala Lumpur 2017, Ogos ini.

Ketua jurulatih skuad silat negara, Nasri Nasir berkata kesemua atlet itu telah berlepas semalam ke Vietnam bagi memastikan fokus mereka pada sesi latihan tidak terganggu terutamanya mengingati sambutan hari raya bersama keluarga masing-masing.

"Ini latihan intensif terakhir sebelum Sukan SEA. Atlet pun sudah dimaklumkan perkara ini sejak awal-awal lagi, jadi saya yakin mereka akan memberikan fokus pada latihan di Vietnam nanti," katanya kepada Bernama.

 

Nasri yang dinobatkan Jurulatih Lelaki Kebangsaan 2015, berkata sepanjang berada di Vietnam, latihan fizikal dan taktikal akan ditekankan dalam kalangan pesilat negara memandangkan cabaran pada Sukan SEA kali ini dijangka sengit.

 

Beliau memaklumkan sekembalinya dari Vietnam pada 7 Julai ini, skuad silat negara akan menjalani kem motivasi di Gunung Ledang, Johor selama lima hari sebelum meneruskan sesi latihan di Cameron Highlands, Pahang bagi tempoh 10 hari.

Mengenai sasaran lapan pingat emas yang diletakkan Persekutuan Silat Kebangsaan Malaysia (Pesaka) pada Sukan SEA 2017, Nasri yakin ia boleh dicapai selepas melihat komitmen yang dipamerkan barisan pesilat negara sama ada semasa latihan mahupun pertandingan sebelum ini.

Beliau, bagaimanapun mengingatkan pesilat negara supaya tidak memandang rendah kemampuan pihak lawan terutamanya Indonesia,Vietnam dan Thailand yang dijangka memberi saingan sengit kepada Malaysia pada Sukan SEA nanti.

"Kekuatan pesilat kita untuk mencapai sasaran lapan pingat itu munasabah jika dilihat pada prestasi pesilat kita di mana pada Kejohanan pra Sukan SEA awal tahun ini, kita berjaya meraih sembilan pingat emas.

"Walaupun prospek pingat emas lebih diletakkan kepada dua juara dunia, Mohd Al-Jufferi Jamari dan Siti Rahmah Mohamed Nasir, saya lihat pesilat lain turut berpeluang meraih emas," katanya.

Acara pencak silat pada Sukan SEA 2017 bakal diadakan di Pusat Konvensyen Kuala Lumpur dari 24 hingga 29 Ogos.

Senarai 26 pesilat ke Sukan SEA 2017:

Putera:

Mastafa Fitri Bun Masjuri, Muhammad Faizul Mohd Nasir, Mohamad Zarish Hakim Shukor, Razak Ghazli, Mohd Al-Jufferi Jamari, Mohd Fauzi Khalid, Mohamed Khusairy Azhar, Muhammad Robial Sobri, Ahmad Badrirullah Rahmat, Mohd Khaizul Yaacob, Muhammad Afifi Nordin

PENCAK SILAT GETS SUKMA PULSE GOING

23 May 2014

KANGAR (23 May 2014) - Pencak Silat set the 17th Malaysia Games (SUKMA) pulse beating with the preliminary round Putra D category in the Olahraga competition at Dewan Sukan Rakyat at the State Sports Complex in Kangar last night.

The hall which was packed to capacity also saw the flag waving supporters involved in their own battle, some beating drums, set the tone for their patriotic songs to motivate their medal prospects.

On the court Terengganu's Ahmad Solahuddin, 21, chasing a golden outing in Perlis after managing only a silver at the last Games in Pahang in 2012, got off to a roaring start when he advanced to the second round with a first round win over Kelantan's Fahmi Azizi.

"It is a long way to go for the gold but to win the first bout is always difficult. It has boosted my morale and confidence to stay in the contention. I want to make up for the disappointment of missing the gold in Pahang," said Solahuddin after his win.

"I have put in a lot of time and effort for this Games as it is my last Sukma. Winning the gold medal for myself and Terengganu will be the perfect farewell."

In other bouts Sarawak's Muhammad At-Tamimi also cleared the first hurdle with a win over Perak's Muhamamd Firdaus while home favourite Mohamad Sabri proved too strong for Kedah's Solahuddin Non.


Pahang also had a first round winner in Mohamad Zarish Hakim who defeated Judd Ian of Sabah and Mohamad Rashidi knocked out Daing Hassanal Sofri of Johor.

Penang stayed alive in the category through Ahmad Fadhli who won against Muhammad Saiful of Selangor and Muhammad Aliff Aiman of Pahang beat Kelantan's Md Amirul Azri while Mohamed Fikry (Pahang) kayoed Mohamed Fais of Kelantan.

RI victorious at pencak silat c’ships

~ Niken Prathivi, The Jakarta Post


Hosts Indonesia were crowned overall champions at the 14th Pencak Silat World Championships in Jakarta, carting a total of 10 gold, five silver and six bronze medals on Sunday.

2007 overall winners Vietnam trailed in second with eight gold, eight silver and three bronze medals, while Malaysia came third with four gold, six silver and six bronze.

Indonesian Pencak Silat Association head Prabowo Subianto said he was proud that his team became overall champions as planned.

“We failed to get the title in previous championships,” he said. “But this time we made it. I really hope this victory could be a good start for Indonesia to regain its glory in martial arts.”

Prabowo is also the newly appointed president for the international pencak silat organization Persilat.

In the previous championships in 2007, Indonesia finished fourth.

Prabowo said the 2010 championships were the largest pencak silat event with a total of 30 participating countries.

In Friday’s final, Indonesia’s Pranoto, Dian Kristanto and Sapto Purnomo in the men’s tanding (fight), and Rosmayani in the women’s tanding all won gold.

Indonesia failed to meet its initial goal of six gold medals. Vietnam picked up eight gold medals from its 10 fighters.

Dian said he was proud to contribute to the Indonesian team’s overall win.

“This is my comeback performance after a two-year break from a ligament injury in my right leg.
And today I did well,” he said, referring to an injury he sustained at the inaugural Asian Beach Games in Bali in 2008.

“It was actually a challenge to fight [defending champions"> Vietnam. Now I’m happy with this win,” he added.

Dian admitted the Vietnamese were hard to beat because they had little to lose at the event. “They went all out, which is why they got this far,” he added.

Dian thanked the home fans for their support during the bouts, saying it boosted the fighters’ morale.
“I think home supporters are now very appreciative. And it really affected us.”

He said he hoped Indonesia would grow in strength at the upcoming Southeast Asian Games in the country next year and in the 2012 world championships.

On Wednesday, the Indonesian team clinched all six gold medals in the men’s singles seni (demonstration), women’s singles demonstration, men’s doubles demonstration, women’s doubles demonstration, men’s groups demonstration and women’s groups demonstration.

The only representative from Europe, the Netherlands, lauded host Indonesia for organizing the tournament.

“Despite Indonesia leading [the tournament">, I really think pencak silat in Vietnam has been well developed. The team has been performed really well in the championships,” Dutch team coach Raoul de Thomis said.

The Art Of Silat

One of the most effective martial art defense styles for the street is the Silat. Silat is the official martial art style of Malaysia. This martial art is divided into two categories. First is the Silat Olahraga, the combat style. Second is the Silat Seni, the performance style. Most of the Malaysian parents enrolled their children to Silat academy. Silat students are taught about self discipline, bravery, respect and self defense.

This art’s ranking system is consisting of seven levels. Each level certifies your level of mastery. Belt rankings are arranged as white, blue, brown, yellow, green, red and black. In each level you will have to master seven different techniques. One of the most effective training in Silat is the Buah Pukulan. This training is mostly consisting of self defense. The training will teach you on how to handle your opponent. This includes receiving attacks from different angles and the right way to counter your enemy, even if he is larger than you.

If you train in Silat, you will learn how to defend yourself, with or without weapons. Once you reach the red and black belt, you will learn how to use various kinds of weapon. Such as, machete, knife, dagger, stick and keris. In addition, you will be taught on how to control your emotions during a battle. This psychological training will help you focus whenever you are fighting one or more opponents. Anyhow, it is always better to keep away from any troubles. However if you cannot avoid the quarrel there are two options that you can choose from.

Your first option is to fight your opponent without hurting him. The purpose of learning this art is to avoid clashes as possible as you can. If you are able to seize your opponent without inflecting so much damage in him, there is a great possibility for both of you to apologize in each other. The best way to execute this technique is to attack your opponent’s weak limbs such as knee, elbow, wrist and shoulder.

Your second option is to attack your opponent just before he attacks you. You can use this method whenever you are facing two or more opponents. In addition, this method is also effective to use, if your opponent is using a weapon. When you use this method, make sure to strike the weakest part of your opponent such as, hear, stomach, eyes, ribs and neck.

Silat is considered as the most effective style of martial art, because students in this art are taught not to fight. However, if they cannot avoid a fight, they can use the Silat’s form of fighting. The motto of this art is to avoid a fight unless you are in a very dangerous situation. Silat teachers carefully choose the persons whom they will be teaching. Because, this art is very dangerous and can easily kill a person, if use in the wrong reason.

MSU martial artiste


Proud moment for Hairulnizam (second from right).


"MY involvement in Kelab Seni Silat Gayung Fatani (KSSGF) at Management & Science University (MSU) was initially only to develop my interest in martial arts but it has taken me far," said Mohd Hairulnizam Ibrahim, 26, on the beginning of his involvement in martial arts.

He was then a student of Biomedical Sciences at MSU and was one of the earliest members in KSSGF, MSU. "I was impressed with its sense of movement and the beauty of its dance movements, as each movement of the hand has its own meaning," he said. He is now a lecturer in the Faculty of Health & Life Sciences at MSU in addition to acting as an instructor for the Pertubuhan Seni Gayung Fatani Malaysia (PSGFM).

Besides being active in KSSGF, Hairulnizam was in the Student Representative Council at MSU. "Participation in extra-curricular activities helped me better focus on learning and help polished my soft skills," he added.

He said the most memorable time of his involvement in martial arts was when he was selected together with five PSGFM coaches to represent Malaysia in March in the Fewstival des Arts Martiauk Bercy, in Paris, that involved 32 types of martial arts from around the world.

MSU emphasises academic performance and active participation in extra-curricular activities for the development of graduates who are competent, and have the soft skills that will add value to their marketability.

DPM: Silat a catalyst to Malay unity

KEPALA BATAS(21/11/2010): Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has been made the fourth ulul amri, or general, of the Malaysia Silat Lincah Arts Association (PSSLM).
Muhyiddin said he was honoured to receive the title from an association that had contributed much to the country and the Malay society.

He described silat as a catalyst for Malay unity, instilling in its exponents discipline, leadership qualities, loyalty and esprit de corp -- values important in building human capital.

"It is indeed an honour and a great responsibility to receive the title from PSSLM. I congratulate the association and its leaders for their great achievements in silat," he said after receiving the title from Penang Yang Dipertua Negeri Tun Abdul Rahman Abbas.

Rahman was the first to receive the ulul amri title, followed by former prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Muhyiddin said he would assist PSSLM's founder and silat master Datuk Omardin Mauju in realising his dream to set up a centre to hold its activities.


Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said with silat listed as an intangible heritage, exponents should be recognised with the title pendekar (warrior) at both state and national levels for their contributions to the martial arts.

He said his ministry would propose the matter to the Federal Government and hoped the title could be awarded starting from next year.

"Perhaps the prime minister or the deputy prime minister could make the announcement in May next year at PSSLM's 50th anniversary celebration."


Rais said exponents of other forms of martial arts such as judo and jujitsu should also be awarded similar recognition.

However, he added, the titles awarded to them would be named differently.

PORT DICKSON: The Silat Seni Gayong Association of Malaysia (PSSGM) aims to recruit more members and create greater awareness of the use of the martial art.

The association hopes this would foster better relations and understanding among the people.


PSSGM president Datuk Adiwijaya Abdullah said 100 new trainers were tasked with recruiting at least 50 members each from their respective areas within six months, beginning in January.


He said this was an effective way to increase the membership and reach out to the increasing number of people becoming interested in martial arts.

"If each trainer can recruit at least 50 new members, our membership will increase by 5,000 next year," he said at the opening of the national trainers course 2010 here.

Also present was Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, who is also PSSGM deputy Imam Khalifah Agong.


The five-day trainers course is aimed at providing the trainers with more intensified training and enhancing their skills in anticipation of new members next year.

At present, there are about 50,000 active members in the association.

Adiwijaya said there had been numerous requests for the association to set up more training centres, especially in Selangor.


"This is a positive development and proof that more people, especially the youngsters, are becoming interested in silat.

"We hope that this five-day training course will help better prepare our trainers to teach the newcomers."

Mohamad said the trainers should become role models for the young towards leading a healthy and active life.

"Apart from teaching the youngsters the art of self-defence, these trainers can also help them and guide them in other aspects of their lives.

"I urge these trainers to take their roles seriously and ensure they are well prepared, both mentally and physically to assume the responsibilities ahead."
