I got the above book in the post today and a combination of being trapped inside due to a storm and wanting to read this book for sometime has meant I have been reading it for most of this morning.
We in the Silat world have such a rich deposit of Silat instructors that I sometimes feel we almost take the older generation for granted. There is much they can teach us and this book is a great example of that, filled with gems of training wisdom and examples of how to live a truly respectful life that's of benefit to others and ourselves.
There are some great pictures of some of the past Silat generation, along with some training sequences showing examples of training.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book, whether you are a new student or even a Guru. Oom Jim and Andrew Shin did an excellent job and it should be in everyone's collection.
