Come and experience the uniqueness of the ancient Indian martial art - SILAMBAM. Silambam is known as a weapon-based martial art (preferably using bamboo staffs as weapon, with its length being customized depending on the height of the practitioners) originated from India, specifically from Tamil Naidu region in the Indian subcontinent. Nowadays, as demonstrations on Silambam for local cultural events and shows have been increased across timeline, we are proud to speak that Malaysia has provided Silambam a stable and great platform in becoming the most popular and widely practiced Indian martial art in our country.
This martial art is divided into different stages, but our main focus on practicing Silambam (1st stage) is meant to allow practitioners (especially beginners) to build foundation for the body to be capable in fighting and prepare the body in an optimum state for the training itself. This includes to improve the practitioners' agility, speed, flexibility, balance, strength hand-eye coordination, kinaesthetic awareness, muscular endurance, and cardiovascular stamina.
In this workshop, you will get to learn self-defense techniques using the stick (rattan) which is the basic for all other weapons and stick spinning techniques as a form of demonstrational art.
Experience the use of the whole body to coordinate with the mind and soul to conceive and give birth to a unique form of art.
