Southside Academy of Combat is a fully equipped self defence centre that offers Silat, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Close Quarter Combat, Power Yoga and Kick Boxing fitness classes for the family.
SS Combat trains silat forms of self defence. Silat dates back over 2000 years ago from the Majapahit empire of the archipelago islands of Indonesia. Until recently, Silat was not commonly known outside of Southeast Asia.
Because many of the island areas are rain forest and jungle areas with slippery terrain, the techniques are developed to be used on the ground as well as normal standing positions. Silat Perisai Diri also trains in the use of weapons especially bladed weapons. We train the weapons so that any weapon that is used becomes an extension of the body. In silat you are trained to be able to utilise just about anything as a weapon and incorporate it in your movments.
