The late Pak Jaafar was the nephew of Mahaguru Yahya Said, source of all Silat Kalimah and Silat Cekak strains currently existing today. Pak Jaafar himself claimed to have inherited 4 different variants of the Cekak style, of which he was in the midst of propagating since the middle of last year.
Unfortunately for the rest of us, we have lost a gem, who was just about to be discovered again. The first and last time I met him was during the TekpiWorks Seminar organised by SMC Innovations and Whyfit Sport Adventure last year. He was a humble and quiet man, but one who shared his knowledge selflessly.
We shall miss him.
