It has been said that "without the knife, there is no silat." What this means is that the techniques of Indonesian knife fighting are in fact the backbone of the art of pentjak silat and the secret of its deadly effectiveness. Unfortunately, the connection between the silat blade art and its empty-hand application has never been clearly explained – until now. In this groundbreaking Paladin video production, silat expert Steve Gartin reveals the secrets of Indonesian knife fighting and shows you why the blade and empty-hand forms of the art are actually one. Gartin also demonstrates for the first time the little-known techniques of kuntao knife fighting and shows you how to make the techniques of this lethal unarmed fighting art even more deadly by applying them with a knife. This video is a fascinating exploration of the roots of the Indonesian martial arts and the awesome effectiveness of the knife in personal combat. For informational purposes only.

Stickgrappler's Note: I am guessing the Paladin site will be shut down at the end of the year and I'm archiving select Paladin Press pages to my blog to preserve an essential part of martial arts from 1970-2017. Archiving some of my favorite Paladin titles.
