Malaysians Urged To Take Up Silat For Self-Defence

KUALA LUMPUR, March 5 (Bernama) -- The Silat Cekak Hanafi Association (PSSCHM) hopes more Malaysians will take part in the 'Pandai Silat' campaign to learn how to protect themselves and their families.

PSSCHM communications and publicity chief Mohd Rais Abu Noh said the campaign, launched last year, had attracted 5,000 members nationwide and hoped more would join.

"We will continue our efforts to educate the public on how important it is to learn silat to keep ourselves safe from incidents such as snatch theft, threats and robbery," he told Bernama Saturday.

Mohd Rais added that this type of silat was free from elements of black magic, so parents need not worry about sending their children to learn this method of self-defence.
