Summary: Treasure
Comment: This book covers the techniques of the various styles of Silat. At 166 pgs and 6 chapters, the book is best divided into 4 sections:

Striking tools/history (hand techniques covered like in karate manuals only with the weapons context of Silat Hands vs the Knife (that's right, you get that FIRST) Training Exercises (stances and 15 technique drills) Combat situations (covers empty hand attacks and some ground work)

The perfect companion to Draeger's "Fighting and Weapons of the Indonesian Archipelago", this is more technique oriented ....... I personally liked the hands vs knife section of the book.
