Assalamualaikum and Hi,

Let me start with myself. I started learning Silat since 11 years old. My ‘steady’ coach still – is Grandmaster of Seni Gayung Fatani Malaysia AssociationAnuar Abdul Wahab but the one that seriously building my silat experience is Guru Aminuddin Hj. Anuar. Both of them are fantastic and superb in giving me full lesson inside and outside o the the REAL meaning of ‘Warrior’ / Pendekar.

Truly, I learned from the beginning until I achieved my Black Belt in 1997. But still practicing until today especially in researching the science behind Silat in nature and sports. In 1997 until 2007 – I started coaching all around Kuala Lumpur, Kajang, Ampang, Putrajaya, Semenyih and Cyberjaya and have established most of Silat class from lower to upper level.

Together with Cikgu Shahiid we established Silat Training Center – known as ‘ Pusat Cemerlang Silat, Kajang‘ aka PCS in 2002. This is the starting of a new era of professionalism in the World of Silat Education in Malaysia. This training center is the highlight of my carrier as at the same time I was the athletes, coach, entrepreneur and students in Sport Science School (Master level), Universiti Teknologi Mara, Shah Alam.

The full support from Grandmaster and other coaches from Seni Gayung Fatani Malaysia Association helped us in gaining experience in branding Silat in every school around Kuala Lumpur.
