One of the most distinctive aspects of the Indonesian martial arts is their amazingly destructive legwork. While a kuntao or silat practitione's hands are busy parrying, trapping and striking, his legs are simultaneously applying their own tactics to trap, unbalance and destroy an opponent's lower body. The result is a coordinated, total-demolition approach to personal combat.
Veteran kuntao-silat practitioner Bob Orlando spent years analyzing Indonesian legwork and organizing it into a true martial science. Now he makes this information available to you in this unprecedented four-volume video course. In this first volume, Orlando explains the critical elements of silat, kuntao and hybrid kuntao-silat legwork and teaches you the mechanics of trapping and unbalancing an opponent with your legs. He then teaches you the first two langkahs (lower-body training drills) of his system and shows you how to apply them with all three fighting styles. In the process, he demonstrates dozens of supplemental drills and combat applications, making this the most comprehensive and detailed instructional video ever produced on this specialized aspect of the Indonesian arts.
Bob Orlando, the owner of the Je du-too School of Martial Arts, teaches a hybrid fighting system that combines elements of Chinese kuntao, Indonesian pentjak silat, Chinese kenpo, kung-fu and the Filipino martial arts. He is also the author of the best-selling books Indonesian Fighting Fundamentals and Martial Arts America and is featured in the videos Fighting Arts of Indonesia and Reflex Action.
