Cruel Efficiency: Silat Suffian Bela Diri

  Silat Suffian Bela Diri – Posture & Body Control in Bruneian Kuntau Keep your attacker in constant off balance physically and mentally. The best time to hit is when he is occupied trying to regain his balance and stability. It is at this specific moment he is fighting 2 opponents, you and gravity. This is just “one option” from the principles. Traditional Kuntau is only used in a self “self defense” situation. Depending on the understanding of the teacher, Kuntau is one of the arts that knowledge can only be transferred from teacher to student. “Hati ke Hati” meaning from one heart to another.     Silat Suffian Bela Diri – Attacking Footwork of Kuntau  ...

In this system, there are four animal styles, each with their own unique movements and conditioning methods. These include Kucin (Cat), Harimau (Tiger), Buaya (Crocodile), and Kura Kura (Turtle).

Maharlika Kuntaw

I’ve had the opportunity to train in Maharlika Kuntaw under Maha Guro Brian “Buzz” Smith several times over the years, and have hosted a seminar with him at my school several years ago. While I was only exposed to a portion of their art, there was a great deal of useful material shown in a small amount of time. Guro Smith is also extremely generous with his time and eager to share the art that he’s dedicated so much of his life to. I found the fact that many of the routes that they learn are nearly identical among different formats (empty-hand, stick, knife, sword, sword & shield, staff, etc.) to be a well considered decision in their curriculum. The similarity in routes will make new material seem familiar. The staff material Guro Smith shared with me factors greatly into the Sibat material I teach in Kali. Many of their core concepts, and some of the takedowns and Buno training methods find their way into my classes as well. – Guro Tony Maha Guro Brian ¨Buzz¨ Smith performing all the forms needed for rank testing in Maharlika Kuntaw through Green Belt.

Silat Suffian Bela Diri

The more I see of this system, the more I appreciate the sectoring and efficiency of motion demonstrated. Maul is highly creative and always demonstrates excellent body mechanics.
