The Malay Art of Self-Defense: Silat Seni Gayong

Sometimes compared to a tiger ready to devour its prey, Gayong helps practitioners develop and increase physical fitness, flexibility, mental conditioning, and self-confidence. Author Sheikh Shamsuddin, who has studied Gayong for 25 years, introduces this little-known practice to Western readers in this first book on the subject in English. The most comprehensive study in any language on Gayong and its customs, The Malay Art of Self-Defense explores in depth the system, techniques, crucial elements, and philosophies involved. Also covered are the art's history, profiles of the most notable practitioners, and an informative Q&A collected from various martial art practitioners to expand readers' knowledge and appreciation. Included are photos of Gayong demonstrations, traditional training centers, customs, and events.
