Silat Olahraga (or "Sports Silat") was recently featured on the Discovery Channel's show "Fight Quest".
Silat Olahraga was developed in the late 1970s in order to allow Silat practitioners from different countries and systems with a way to compete based upon a standardized set of rules and regulations. Silat Olahraga is now a part of the SEA Games (South East Asia Games). Recent powerhouses include Vietnam and Thailand.
This book (in English with over 500 pictures and illustrations) features techniques from the Malaysian martial art of Seni Silat Gayong Fatani. Silat Gayong Fatani originated in the Fatani province of Southern Thailand and is a popular Silat system in Thailand and Northern Malaysia.
This book has been out-of-print since 1993. A limited number of copies were misplaced and were recently discovered in a warehouse in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. These books are new, but show some slight discoloration along the edges due to their age and the Malaysian environment.
