Drunken Form – Short Basic Form

Pour the Drink after you have approached the Vendor

Sip the drink (typically a Green Tea and Hard Liquor) until the dumb criminal tries to rob the place – then defend the Warung (establishment) and have another drink. Don’t pass out by the end.

This is the spirit of Drunken Form from Indonesia as interpreted by this Silat player. Silat, the original MMA, brings together many arts to make its foundation. You can see the movement from other arts that I was trying to impersonate if you look close!
