Persatuan Seni Silat Cekak Pusaka Ustaz Hanafi


Several interested parties have been asking me for updates on the recent Silat Cekak Hanafi leadership crisis which gave birth to a new organisation, Persatuan Seni Silat Cekak Pusaka Hanafi under the guidance of Tuan Guru Md Radzi Haji Hanafi.

Since I'm mostly out of the loop on this one, I can't yet confirm whether they are now a national body, or only exist as state and higher-learning institution level student associations. So, I googled it, and it seems that the latter is true.

I found that the Kelantan branch claims to have been set up here http://schkelantan.blogspot.com/ and their upcoming activity includes an initiation.


The Selangor branch in Serdang, which together with UPM is a traditional stronghold of Tuan Guru Md Radzi also appears active, having held a membership drive and Majlis Potong on the 20th of December. See here: http://sf2721.blogspot.com/2008/12/pengambilan-ahli-baru-silat-cekak.html

In University Malaya, the association recently held a demonstration under the new name, but with the Persatuan Seni Silat Silat Cekak Ustaz Hanafi Malaysia (PSSCUHM) uniforms (although the video I've included here doesn't allow a detailed look to see if there are any changes made).


At the national level, however, the organisation has made a lot of progress, as they held their annual Hari Tenaga Pengajar at Dewan DBKL on the traditional date of 1 Muharram, falling this year on 29th December 2008.

Additionally, it seems the younger-minded movement of Silat Cekak Pusaka Hanafi has more energy and direction than its predecessor. Thus, I wasn't surprised to find this blurb on the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre website on their latest event, the KLPAC Open Day:

"EXCITING TALENTS
Julian Mokhtar, Azmyl Yunor, Young KL Singers, KL Children's Choir, bellydancers from Sirocco Secret Dance, Kayla Maxey of Flamenco Malaysia, klpac sinfonietta, Indian Cultural Drum Group (Sentul & Jln Ipoh), Persatuan Silat Cekak Pusaka Hanafi and heaps more"

If ever anyone questioned whether the group that split off from PSSCUHM could get back on their feet, it looks like 2009 will be their answer.

Inilah antara masalah Silat Melayu ni. Saya tak berminat nak ulas soal ranting, cuma nak komen soal pokok saja di sini. Silat Cekak asalnya satu - diperkenalkan oleh Arwah Ustaz Hanafi. Kemudian wujud serpihan - Silat Kalimah. Lepas tu Silat Cekak Hanafi oleh Md Radzi Hanafi dan terbaru Cekak Pusaka Hanafi.(?)
Padahal semua syllabus silat ni sama 100%. Guru Utama & alamat laman web Persatuan sahaja berbeza. :)

Pada hemat saya, lebih elok kiranya mereka semua dapat sekurang-kurangnya duduk semeja (mungkin dengan persatuan silat lain) demi kepentingan Silat Melayu di Malaysia dan dunia.


Wallahualam.

Silat melayu merupakan salah satu cara atau wadah untuk kita mengenali antara sesama muslim yg lain. namu demikian silat cekak telah berpecah kepada beberapa bahagian dan aliran iaitu silat cekak pusaka hanafi, silat cekak ustaz hanafi, silat cekak malaysia dan silat kalimah. pengasasnya adalah pemimpin agung iaitu Allahyarham Ustaz Hanafi Hj Ahmad. mengepa nak berpecah belah??

kalau kita boleh hidup di bawah satu naugan, satu bumbung, satu arah, satu tujuan, bukankah lebih elok dr bergerak secara sendirian??

mengapa kepentingan itu kita tidak boleh ketepikan?? padahal perjuangan kita adalah satu, iaitu menyatupadukan umat Islam umat Melayu...

wassalam....

salam.kpd en fathiadha..anda melihat silat cekak itu berpecah kpd beberape kelompok..tp tidak bg sy..sy hanye melihat silat cekak itu hanye ade 1 iaitu yg digagaskn oleh almarhum ust hj hanafi hj ahmad.yg berpecah hanye persatuan.tp silat tetap same..cume mungkin pembawaan yg berbeza kerana berlainan guru..mesti diingat..silat itu hanya kulit luaran..tetapi ape yg cube ditekankn oleh almarhum sebenarnye adalah pendidikan rohani seseorang pengamal itu sendiri iaitu yang berteraskn konsep tauhid kepada TUHAN YANG MAHA ESA..itu yang membezakan dan menjadikan silat cekak amat istimewa..tepuk dada tanyelah iman..wassalam..

oh ya, saya lama dah tak join latihan cekak ni...cuma saya tertanya-tanya adakah Toh Yahya Said terlibat dalam mengajar silat ini...jadi kenapa tidak diambil nama beliau??? yang jelas ialah dia juga mewarisi dan mengajarnya... eh...emmm...konfius ni.
