in mid 2006 kalo tak silap lah myself, alik and anuar(former folk guitarist decma&tchb) learn 'buah pukul' in Kg Melayu. Till now im stil learning this martial art 2 times a week kalo sempat lah as an exercise for myself.
It all started when i hav some misunderstanding n a lil fight at my working place jeng!jeng!jeng!!:p ~ The fight was over when we were cool-down by friends who saw dis fight;p but aku takpuas hati n i challenge him to meet n settle dis one n fo all outside of the building after werk 5pm, but he didnt turn up.. hmm at dis time, dis fren of mine named shamsul(working in the same company) heard bout dis n we lepak2 n tell me n fadly(fad sankurro) bout dis 'kenal diri' n show me some movemnt n fight skills of 'buah pukul'.. sebelum nih kat sekolah or mana2, aku nih koboi2 jek hahaa;p
..fadly make the first move attended the class and a month later i joined them!..and a month later alik n anuar joined us too;p ..the great sifu is Nordin Ali Hassan, and his helper or 'kaker' is Shamsul;p n Azmi.. Seni Silat Gerak Singkir is similar to buah mersing, buah pukul kuantung, buah endau, seni silat golok, gayang 5, seni lian paduka or padukan etc... En Nordin mewarisi ilmu ini daripada pak mat kedidi .. i've heard that sultan johor pun tahu ilmu nih
~believe me, this martial arts is different frm silat bcoz dis martial arts dont have 'bunga' n it is similar to kungfu/shaolins, muathai.. the 8 weapon of ourself(2 penumbuk, 2 siku, 2 lutut n 2 kaki)
*seni tempur nih sama jer ngan lain2 seni pertahankan diri sebab ianya bertujuan pertahankan diri di kala terdesak, utk rohani dan jasmani, untuk menyerang n mengelak musuh;p ..or utk exercise senam2 jek actly..
*its also a way of knowing yourself as a normal human being, in all aspect of life/in a relationship between humanity n god, also self-weekness and the strenghness to somehow its for our instinct, to be more dicipline.. hmm more to tasawuf:)
here in kg melayu is where i met firhan(decma&tchb gambusist) and
iqbal(used to play tabla/percussions wit us) -they r my sifu's (Nordin Ali Hassan) only sons! -
