KUALA TERENGGANU, Sept 29 (Bernama) -- Seven states will display their silat talents at the Malaysia Silat Carnival scheduled for Sunday at the Dewan Majlis Daerah in Kemaman.
They are Pahang, Penang, Johor, Melaka, Kelantan, Selangor and hosts Terengganu.
Manager of the Mayang Sari Malaysia Martial Arts Federation of Terengganu Ya'ani Ali said today Pahang would send three teams, Terengganu two and the other states, one each.
"We expect some 300 silat experts to take part in the carnival which is being held for the first time in Terengganu," he told Bernama.
Ya'ani said apart from attracting tourists, the carnival was being held to foster closer friendship among silat bodies in the country and to promote the cultural heritage of the nation.
Various forms of self-defence would be presented by the silat experts during the one-day carnival to be opened by Terengganu Menteri Besar Tan Sri Wan Mokhtar Ahmad.
