Thank you Mas Amirulhusnitekpi, for bringing this topic to the surface.Silat Sukmorogo ... the name confirms (to me in any case) that there is a sameness in the end result among all movement orientated activities.Sukmo - spirit - I, rogo - shape - body - form - Hsing ... in the end concepts can be understood a myriad of ways, each culture adapting and making ideas into reality to mirror their own cultural and environmental needs. It confirms 2 things for me:1/ That spirituality has always been inherent within martial endeavour - it creates the personal environment to allow deep meditative introspection, and ...2/ somewhere along the line people discover the combination of factors that together create a source of superior power, which changes the way we move and exist.I agree with you Bram, it would be a great opportunity to investigate links in Malaysia.Mangkubumi .. maybe sounds like it's from Solo ya Bram?Salam,Krisno
Mas Kris, Mangkubumi is a title often given to Princes. The most famous warrior Mangkubumi would be Pangeran Mangkubumi who later became Ngarsa nDalem Sampeyan nDalem Ingkang Sinuwun Hamengku Buwana Senapati Ingalaga Sayidin Panatagama Kalifatullah Ingkang Kaping I. .. then I think that there was also a Pangeran Mangkubumi in Perang Dipanegara (1825-30) ... Both could be related to the Malaysian Mangkubumi silat. However, saying that, in the ethnic Jawa communities there is not that much silat. Most Jawa silat comes from Sunda, Bugis, Madura and Padang. Like in Merpati Putih - if I am not mistaken, the ilmu pernafasan is old and goes back to Mataram days but the movement was formulated in the 1970's, in dialogue with other gerak silat from all over.
Silat Rencong Rentak 9 (previously known as Silat Moropulai Sogo)Silat Siamang LautPeace
Wa'alaikum Salam Cik Amirul (we can call you 'cik', right?),I think Silat Rencong Retak 9 should be from Aceh as rencong is the weapon of Aceh people.Siamang in Minangkabau means big monkey, therefore looks like that Silat Siamang Laut is from West Sumatera.Salam Pencak Silat.
