“War” in Malaysia..??”

Please lah ..this is absolutely nonsense when the Silat Master “Mahaguru” Tan Sri Omardin Mauju comes up with it’.

We maintain our stand to go to ‘war’

if they still want to proceed with this illegal rally. If it happens, I cannot guarantee I can control the emotions of my members because they have been taught to act when faced with opposition.”

For the information of many who does not know self defense let me tell you,” My 3 brothers and my dad all received 1st dan Black belt in Tang Soo Do {Moo Duk Kwan-Korean of self defence) way back in 1976. {received mine from the then 7th dan Instructor Hwang Kee on 15th June 1976.

We took it as an art of protecting ourselves and not to go against anyone. We were taught specifically to use it only when we are attacked. We took a solemn oath. But unfortunately or rather by twists of fate I was attacked by some school bullies,”Kwailo-English boys by the way who kept on pushing and hitting me and also calling me Asian Shit/Prawn Balls” in England. I was even hauled up by the authorities concerned in England after giving those “Kwailo’s” a taste of the medicine. I was told in so many words “You are a student at your art of self defence and didn’t your masters teach you.?”You should fend them off instead of giving them broken lips,nose and bruises”

Your actions could have got you deported and also even jail sentences. I was given a very strong warning and it wasn’t just a simple telling off. Mine you, I was 17++  then and been young doesn’t mean you can get away with murder. I was given probationary sentence and asks to teach students the art as a punishment every Wednesday afternoon. They even wrote to our Federation in England to asks permission for me to conduct classes for the benefit. That is how they teach offenders and that should be the way.

This report written by Iskandar Dzulkarnain I have every reason to be supportive. He said,”The Mahaguru, a Tan Sri wants to whack the living daylights out of Bersih activists for participating in a Democracy March. Silat, an Art of Self Defence is now being used to launch a pre-emptive strike. A chop, chop here and a chop, chop there, and then some flying kicks everywhere as they have been taught to respond when faced with opposition.And all the while we thought that Silat is actually practised for self-defense. Why would they also want to go to war?

By the way,if I had continued with my art of self defense 35 years later from 1976 I would have also been nearly if not a Grand Master of the Korean Art. In my training in Kuching at that time when my blood rushed up my brains especially at free sparring I did a lot of damage intentionally or unintentionally. Three persons had broken arms from my round houses kick and back spins while many had their “balls kicked” amongst whom was a retired Police OCPD and a very hated officer by the Miri gangsters. He would drive fear when the bad hats were hauled up before him and its the truth.

Ever wondered what happen..Spare the details shhh?

Please lah the rally if it still goes on is not a chance for the Grand Master of silat to tell his students to hit back with lethal kicks and the rests of the late Bruce Lee’s style. The Mahaguru might have been watching too much “Kung Fu Panda movies recently says my malay friend. He should just go into hiding after this as many other grand masters of the art of self defenses would not like to be associated with his concept.

Maybe its now called the art of attacking…or prepare to go for “War.”

WHAT SAY YOU………….Ooooh Please lah..!!
