LEARNING AT THE STUDIO
1.The main objective when defending or attacking (boxing, kick, levers, throws, knee strikes, disarming, etc.) is to develop an instinctive movement free of restrictions.
2.Defence is usually with bare hands even from weapons such as knives, sarong (skirt), a floor, Karambit, machete, etc. It is important to develop an instinct for outdoor fights using bare hands and attacks with different items.
3.Learning the principles of the Philippine boxing. Philippine boxing envisages various kinds of attacks: from elbow and knee blows to the head, to “dirty” kicks, which are usually considered as not acceptable in fighting sports. With Kombat Silat one can learn to neutralize such attacks.
